Interview with The Goat
Mourning Goats, the excellent (sort of) new bi-monthly interview site, was kind enough to talk with me. We discuss giving away work for free–“I have no illusions about my future as a writer. I highly doubt (and Universe, feel free to make this statement look dumb in a couple years) I’ll ever be able to stay home and write books all day.”–my undying love for Ben Whitmer’s Pike–“I had the same reaction as the first time I read The Postman Always Rings Twice and Dermaphoria, The Long Trial of Nolan Dugatti, too.”–and of course, Shaun of the Dead and Spaced–“I’m hopelessly mired in pop culture and I think it comes through regardless of what I’m writing. Kind of like Spaced, but way more fucked up.”
I think I’m just going to keep talking about Shaun and Spaced until Simon Pegg or Edgar Wright write me a letter saying my level of nerd-dom makes their dorky hearts proud. New contest: Anyone who can swing that gets a free copy of anything I put out for the rest of my life.
Anyway, big thanks to Sean Ferguson for the questions and Goat for having me.
