Blog in Exile: Interviews & Author News, 6/13

A statue to honor horror writer Arthur Machen is being erected in Gwent, and a panel of writers (including Tim Lebbon, Lionel Fanthorpe, and Simon Clarke) are assembling on July 5th to honor Machen.

SciFi Wire talks to Jeff Prucher about his new book Brave New Words: The Oxford Dictionary of Science Fiction.

SF Signal interviews the zombie John C. Wright.

The zombie John Scalzi has also shambled over to SF Signal for some nice tasty brains. (Mmmmmm, brains!)

Jeff VanderMeer, at the Amazon Blog, talks to and profiles Jeffrey Thomas, author of Deadstock.

M. John Harrison quotes from a Time Out interview with Michael Chabon (which doesn't seem to be online), and then notes how terribly, terribly sour the grapes must be.

Ellen Kushner has posted her essay about her Nebula-nominated novel The Privilege of the Sword from the Nebula Awards issue of the SFWA Bulletin.

I think you might have the wrong end of the stick here. In fact I'm not sure how what you say relates to my argument--that trash/art postmodernism is no longer exactly in its leading edge, & that at its establishmental worst it leads away from the genius of writers like Chabon & towards the dreary low-pomo of Dr Who--at all. Grapes aren't involved. I'm puzzled why you'd think they might be. Do we know each other ? Do you know my life well enough to make a statement like that ? You don't know my life at all.
