Interviews

Two more examples of my inability to shut up about myself:

Wotmania interview (in two parts, this link being to the first)

SCI-FI Wire article by John Joseph Adams (VELLUM in 500 words or less!)

In other news, VELLUM appears to have made the shortlist for the BFS Award for Best Novel, the nominations being:

Ramsey Campbell, SECRET STORIES
Mark Chadbourn, THE HOUNDS OF AVALON
Hal Duncan, VELLUM: THE BOOK OF ALL HOURS 1
Neil Gaiman, ANANSI BOYS
George R. R. Martin, A FEAST FOR CROWS
Mark Morris, NOWHERE NEAR AN ANGEL

I'm going to have to practice my smile-through-gritted-teeth-while-politely-clapping. My money's on Neil Gaiman.

Neil and George win enough as it is. Let's have someone new for a change.

Ooh, cool my favourite author Gaiman is up... only kidding! Getting heavily through Vellum and dude, you are an amazing writer! Certainly improves my usual neddite bus travel to and from work!
