Big thanks to the nice folks at Simon & Schusters’ multimedia department for taping an interview with me. It’s now up on S&S’ website and you can view it here: http://authors.simonandschuster.com/Chris-Evans/46195026
In other publishing news, I hear C.C. Finlay (http://www.ccfinlay.com/) is hard at work on a new book, Richard Knaak (http://www.richardaknaak.com/INTRO.html) is coming out with a huge book in his Dragonrealm series on September 1, and Karen Traviss has said goodbye to the world of Star Wars in a blog post here http://karentraviss.typepad.com/blog/2009/08/end-of-one-era-start-of-another.html
I first met Karen at Michigan State University in the summer of 2000. We were attending the Clarion East SF/F Writers Workshop. You might recognize another name from that class, Gavin Grant, of Small Beer Press fame (http://smallbeerpress.com/). He’s now married to author, Kelly Kink (http://kellylink.net/ I think I met her there, then, too). I may have mentioned this before, but it was Gavin who told me Del Rey were looking for an editor for both SF and military. I got that job and the rest is a mystery, or something like that. I’m pretty sure I still owe him a beer or twenty for that. Anyway, before I start pulling out slides and showing you the cafeteria where we ate lunch, I bring this up because it’s been an amazing nine years from that summer to this.
