In the Locus Spotlight
An awesome thing: Locus Magazine interviewed me for their rad “Spotlight On” series! It’s a real honor, and I’m very happy with the result. Here’s a taste:
More and more, I think it’s the storyteller’s job to insert the idea of ‘‘justice’’ into a world where it is so profoundly lacking, to show people that what we yearn for, what we fight for, can come to pass. Empires will fall; our oppressors will be punished; our suffering will be redeemed. The world we actually live in is profoundly unfair and unjust and cruel, but stories can help us escape – and imagine better ones. Our privilege and our oppression will be inverted. Our good acts and our wicked ones will be returned upon us. The ending might not be happy, but it will be just.
Big love & gratitude to Tim Pratt, Arley Sorg, Liza Groen Trombi, and the whole Locus Team!!
