Another question for Evan Marcroft

Q: If you could have any super power, what would it be?

A: If I could have any one super power, I would want the ability to experience alternate realities at will. While I do love being a writer, I often find myself wondering at all the opportunities I passed up to pursue that life. The world is full of more people than I will ever be able to meet. There are too many things for me to possibly do in just a hundred or so years. I wouldn’t necessarily want the power to fulfill any dream I might have, but rather the ability to pursue any dream I cared to, with all the ups and downs that chase would entail. The best part of any journey is going there, after all. Plus, I might uncover an alternate reality where I have other superpowers too, so really there’s no downside to this.

About Sarah McGill

Sarah McGill has been a tour guide in Ohio, a student in New Zealand, a stage manager in New York, and a canoe outfitter in Minnesota. Her favorite time and place is post-revolution France at the height of the Death Cabarets through the end of the Grand Guignol, mostly because the bohemians really did walk their alligators in the rose gardens and pretend hydropathes were Canadian animals whose feet were made into drinking glasses. She wishes she knew how to sail and had more cats.

A question for Vaya Pseftaki

Q: If you could have a meal with a character from any classic novel, whom would you choose?

A: I would gladly take Basil Hallward, the painter from The Picture of Dorian Gray, out to dinner. Though overshadowed by the dashing Dorian, he is the most tragic figure in the book; his unrequited love morphs into a literal window to hell. To top it all, he ends up being murdered. The check would definitely be on me, along with plenty of shots.
