Inset picture of me by Liza Groen Trombi
As you can see, tons of cool people have written essays for the issue, including Garth Nix, Nancy Farmer, Graham Joyce, Jonathan Stroud, and Ursula K. Le Guin! There are also reviews by Gary K. Wolfe of the entire Uglies series as well as Blue Noon.
I didn’t write anything, but I did sit for a multi-hour interview (back during the round the world trip) and tried to sound wise and smart. Then I posed for those photos trying to look rockstarish. Then they fed me and I got to see the awesome Locus collection of, like, every sf book ever published.
You can read excerpts of the interview here soon, as well as Kenneth’s and Holly’s interviews. But for the whole thing, you can buy the issue or subscribe. Locus is a great magazine, with interviews of sf and fantasy authors and tons of reviews every month. It’s also full of insider stuff, like what books are coming out, or have just sold or been optioned for movies. Highly recommended if you want to geek out on the publishing world. Sorry to sound like an ad, but we do actually live by Locus here in the Larbfeld household.
And the cool thing is, the editors are offering you guys free shipping on this issue (it’s $5.95), or the issue completely free with a year’s subscription. If that appeals, just click here.
