Interview with Bram Stoker Award-winning author John Shirley

At the end of this post, you’ll find a link to an interview with John at his site. My interview with Shirley will focus on broader sociopolitical and economic questions similar to the ones you’ll find at the link above, but also zero in on specifics from the texts and relate those back to current events and historical precedent. I will also ask him about his place in SF and horror and ask him what he thinks has changed about Cyberpunk.

Though I’ll be focusing on the three works mentioned in a previous post, I’ll also be asking about other works as well, specifically The View From Hell and A Splendid Chaos and perhaps even Spider Moon. However, the focal points will be A Song Called Youth, In Extremis and Everything Is Broken.

I like to take specific excerpts from the text as having specific import, that reflect a certain philosophical viewpoint or worldview.

But this is a decent interview and should get the gears greased.
