Q: What’s an idea you’re dying to write but haven’t, and why?
A: I’ve long wanted to write a cyberpunk story about racial injustice, but my efforts have dissatisfied me. In the story, a bug in neuro implant software would leave people losing touch with the physical world and behaving like sleepwalkers, leading them to be mistaken for zombies by panicky gun owners and police officers. Sometimes the writer who has the idea isn’t the right person to write it. Perhaps someone else will.
