Writers and the world

Thanks to Bibliophile Stalker I found a set of interview excerpts running from 1987 to 2001, with Douglas Adams, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, J. G. Ballard and Kurt Vonnegut. I recommend them to anyone wanting a look into their worlds and ours.

If that interests you, and Ballard's thinking in particular, or simply life, I'd also point you to this post at Science Not Fiction on a possible hidden meaning in Pixar's films.

On the subject, mainly for 40K fans, is Auberon's interview with Dan Abnett at Digital Waaagh!, which focuses on Abnett's contribution to the shared universe.

And following up all of that, you might well like this, a stimulating post and discussion at Astrogator's Logs, on the nature of fantasy, coincidentally quoting Douglas Adams.

Hi Porky: It's morning time here. Nearly 8AM. Miss Wiggy and I went for our mile walk, she ate and now she's down for a nappy nap while I go hide at my desk for a bit. Glad to hear you got lots of ideas down. Go you. Rah.

That to me sounds like the perfect start. I hope the desk time turned up some goods. If so, go us..! More ideas here today, but not much that's good to go yet.
