    The KJA's Greatest Hits

    Postby Sandwurm88 » 21 Aug 2009 15:58

    I'm compiling a list of great KJA quotes and pictures. The name is pretty self explanatory, like the crap he uses in every damn interview. I also like the answers for the email interview that Chig did ( or other interviews).

    P.S - Famous or infamous Demotivators too!

    Here's a bump for ya.

    I LOVE THE PICTURE, but wish it were true.

    http://authors.simonandschuster.com/Kev ... 6031/voice

    Older, but I didn't see a reference to it earlier. KJA complains about his copy editor! This site also has more interviews and shite.
    I don't think the author should make the reader do that much work - Kevin J. Anderson

    This is the picture that should be a bad hip-hop album cover...

    I can't believe somebody called them the "Sons of Dune" though...Kevin J. Anderson is not, nor ever will be related to Frank Herbert. Unless he and BoBo get married, I guess.

    He never even met the man. I think that's my favorite KJA factoid of all time.

    But he loved him from afar....

    :shock:

    Hey ... does that make BoBo some kind of homosexual bridge? :shifty:
    I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

    Is the top pic The Jacket ? The collar cut is right, but the color is off -
    However, they look so pale & pasty, it doesn't look tinted ...

    However, the next four are wonderful.

    The bottom three are from 2005, I forget which convention,
    but luckily there is a datestamp on the last one.

    The second photo has a poster of the Roswell Six thing, so
    that's dated to this year.

    Good job on that, I thought to post a whole series of TehJKAcket photos,
    but without positive dates, they could all be from the same little book tour.

    and it's damn near the same T-shirt.

    T-shirt, blue jeans, clunk boots (which he can't pass off as hiking boots,
    and probably refers to as "engineer work boots" or even, godforbid, "motorcycle"
    boots) - then throws on a casual 80s "sports jacket" and thinks he looks
    "professional".

    tool.

    edit - fuck, had a closer look. it's even worse.

    The bottom is from 2005,
    #3 &#4 are from a different convention, but still in 2005, I think,
    but fuck me blind, THAT IS THE SAME T-SHIRT....

    my comment (if they don't delete this, they ain't reading 'em)

    I, the Sandrider, wrote:it's times like these I praise the gods for rural living & dial-up -
    I'm not atall tempted to wait for this to download.
    Besides, even without hearing it, I can hit the high points -

    blah-blah-Frank's notes- blah - bestseller --blah,
    hike, blah, award nominated- blah, more words in
    print than Jesus, blah-blah-Brian's drinking again, -
    blah, TOR is the cheapest publisher I've ever worked
    for, blah-blah-blah.



    some one please take the pic from this page
    and do something nasty & funny with it.

    Hey, I like his Superman lapel pin though. I wear a lapel pin every day. Must be a collectible. But it shows what he thinks he is: super. Let the jokes trickle in now!

    That might explain why he's worn the same jacket for the last decade. He thinks of it as a super hero costume :)

    He'll be doing the tux thing again this weekend or next, as it's time for that Writers of the Future thing he's always judging. Expect many updates on Twatter.
