    Did you listen to any of the interviews, or just read the transcripts?

    Gosh darn it all, I could tell he was just too nice a guy, ya know, to play any kind of hard ball! :lol:

    AWFUl sorry to hear his house caught fahr, and that he had to go ALL THE WAY TO INDIA to find a publisher for his books.

    And while we're at it, let's slam his books! :D

    PARAWORLD ZERO, by Matthew Peterson

    From School Library Journal
    Grade 5–7—The best thing that can be said about this book is that the painfully bad cover art should dissuade anyone from attempting to read it. The prose is ungainly and includes grammatical errors at regular intervals. The plot begins with a dark and stormy night straight out of the Bulwer-Lytton contest: "Rumbling sounds resonated from the darkness above, accompanied by a faint groan of atmospheric indigestion echoing in the distance." It doesn't improve. The story follows young Simon Kent, an orphan and a victim of bullies, as he is suddenly catapulted into a series of adventures by an encounter with a young student of magic. Tonya transports Simon to another "paraworld," one of many parallel universes. They have various adventures with Puds, ancient secrets, magic, space travel, etc., but the narrative is nearly impossible to read, let alone enjoy. If readers are looking for something involving parallel worlds, hand them Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves's wonderful Interworld (Eos, 2007).—Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, WI

    Um ... OUCH? :lol:

    Oh. Sweet. Jayzuss ... I just done DAHD and gone t' Heaven! He's got a discussion board! YEEHAW!!!

    About the pics? Of course. Whether or not you know my vitals is another matter of concern...

    Not to worry. I've already sold them (at a tidy profit!) to a crack team of Chinese spammers and identity thieves in Shanghai who ... even ... as ... we ... speak ... are ... in your base ... looking under your hood! :lol:

    Another one who thinks interviewing = cyberfluffing. :roll: I honestly feel that if given the time, he would eventually hit all the Classic Preeq excuses & rationalizations.

    It's just not worth it.

    Actually, neither. :oops:

    Okay, I know that's bad, but when I saw his response to your post, I had to chip in. Given that you'd said the hacks had given the same answers in his interview as in all the others, I figured I knew what the content would be.

    I'm still very proud of The Quarry but … let's face it; in the end the real best way to sign off would have been with a great big rollicking Culture novel.

    Icing on the cake.

    He posted a note to Kevin about the interview being up on KJA's MySpace page. That means he's a FoK.
    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

    Well, I don't even use Facebook. I figured people would search me out there, so I made a slug account and haven't updated it in nearly a year. Everything you see there is dated to some degree.
