Interview on Tower.com

Tower.com has posted the interview they have with me, made from fan-submitted questions. The topics range from music to movies to writing to formative experiences in my life. It's a nice range of questions, I think.

Congratulations to those of you who by asking questions won free copies of the book; I have the box with your books in it on my office floor right now, and will be signing them forthwith.

Also, because Tower clearly knows how to make an interviewee feel like a star, they've posted a promotion of the interview on their front page. I feel shiny!

(Note that I don't expect that promotion to be there much after 4/17/07 -- that would be silly.)

Proof is left the the reader, for homework.

Not the first post, but the first question! Yes!

In the interview you mention that you use friend's names. In the last page of DeMille's latest book, "Wildfire", he lists names he used for his characters because these people made donations to charity (I have no idea how large a donation it took). What do you think of this idea?

John Scalzi | April 17, 2007 07:46 PM

I have no opposition to it.

Amazon says my copies of TAD and TLC have shipped!

In honor of this occasion I request an excellent Ghlaghghee picture.

Please? Pretty please, with Iams on top?

Great interview! And I'm thrilled to have won a copy of TLC. :-)

Glad you answered my question! I'm also happy to be getting a signed copy now; I wasn't looking forward to waiting 'til Kokomo in late June to buy a copy of the book. Of course, I'll buy one from Don anyway -- it's important to support extremely cool bookstores....

And, thanks for adding Kokomo to your tour list again. Am I correct in believing that it was your only tour stop for Ghost Brigades?

It's the 26th and it's still there!
