You di realize that you inspired people with the Uglies series to do something they never dreamed of before.

What do you think would actually happen to the world if something happened to our oil/natural gas supply (like in the Uglies backstory)?

Well, it's already happening. Because the supply of gas is getting very expensive to get to, and more people want to use it (as China industrializes) the price will tend to go up. (It's only low now because of the recession.)

Luckily, it won't happen all at once as in the Uglies books. Maybe we'll be smart enough to change the way we live and have a "soft landing" from our dependence on oil.
im going to high school next year for environmental science and im going to college for environmental engineering. UGLIES helped me make that choice. Thank you Scott-sensei!
Yeah. I do have to admit that I chose APES too. And I'm always going around school getting the recycling. Thanks from me too Scott-La!!!

Out of all of your adult books, which is your favourite?

Fine Prey, probably.

have you ever thought about writing a song?

I've written lots of songs. I play guitar and keyboards. (But not for ages now. Too busy.)

With writing? Hey, what did you want to be when you were a kid?

Well, right. I was mostly referring to an immediate "something".
And maybe. I hope so. But sometimes it doesn't really seem like we're trying to "land" at all.

I'm a long time Uglies fan who's never read any of your other work (out of fear it won't be as captivating, I sheepishly admit). Which next book would you recommend by you?
What about another series you think someone like me would like?

I'm always most in love with my current books. (After all, they're the ones that are in my head.) So check out Leviathan. But you could also ask the fine people on this forum.

APES- advanced placement environmental science, right?

How would ZANE be with them? Was he originally a Special?


Yes! But then I decided to make it all more complicated.

I wish he hadn't died. Tally was so depressed after.

I'm curious as to whether the research you did for Uglies was more on brain functions (for the lesions) or on behaviors (being pretty, cutting, anorexia).

Why'd you choose for the Uglies series to continue in Japan?
