On Craft, Characters, and Likeability…
I’ve had the pleasure of participating in two recent interviews that asked great questions about craft, violence, characterization and likeability. Both of these interviews were completed before the recent controversy about The Sadist’s Bible, but I can’t think of a better time for them to be posted!
Critic Karl Wolff’s interview with me was just posted today over at his blog. This is the interview where I talk the most about the likeability question. (We also get into a related discussion of Poe’s concept of “the imp of the perverse”.)
Last week, Jackie Chin and I did a video interview on her weekly You Tube show, Zombiepalooza Radio Live. My interview starts at the two hour mark and lasts roughly until the three hour mark of the video, but there are plenty of other interesting guests before and after me, too.
