A question for Andrew Leon Hudson

Q: What kind of pieces are the most fun to write (action, lyrical, etc.)?

A: I like to write “character” scenes, but that gets me across the borders and into action scenes, lyrical scenes, sitting-and-contemplating scenes, the lot. Any time you’re showing someone active in a story, you’re building up who and what they are, even if it’s only in the smallest way. So (just to tread on my own toes) I probably find action scenes the most fun to write because you’re revealing someone in extremis, and that’s when they can prove your expectations or be the most surprising.

A question for Ekaterinya Vladinakova

Q: What is the first/most recent book that you lost sleep reading/thinking about?

A: Aubrey De Grey’s book Ending Aging – The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime. An amazingly detailed and highly credible book as far as how we would go about reversing the aging proccess; the horrible process that kills 100,000 people every day, and is responsible for untold amount of human suffering in the form of age related ill health & diseases and costing the global economy trillions in healthcare-related costs.

A question for Allison Wall

Q: What is the scariest or most disturbing story you’ve ever read?

A: There are several in the running for most disturbing. “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson is the first story I remember being seriously disturbed by. Flannery O’Connor’s “Good Country People” and “Revelation” are up there, along with Joy Williams’s “Traveling to Pridesup.”  As far as scary, Jeff VanderMeer’s “The Third Bear” plain terrified me–I didn’t have the guts to read the rest of his collection afterwards.
