Locus Interview – Raised by Wolves, & ABC interview

When I was at World Fantasy in November, I was interviewed by Liza Trombi of Locus Magazine. The interview is out in this month’s edition, and look at that line-up — I respect all these artists hugely. Charles Vess is one of my artist heroes and inspirations and his interview is online: Narrative Impulse (the Singer Sewing Machine story always sounds like something out of O’Henry).

And before I left, Rhianna Patrick of the ABC interviewed me for her segment, and that is online here (full disclosure: I’d just thrown out my back and was on painkillers).

Michael Mackenzie of ABC Radio National interviewed Kim Wilkins, Namila Benson and me about the curse of distraction. It was live (argh) but the edited podcast is now up online. The federal government leadership spill happened halfway through and I had a deer-in-the-headlights moment, but those have now been removed so you can pretend this all takes place in a calm and stable environment.

Are distractions stifling our creativity?
