A Cool Interview

Charles A. Tan interviewing the great Alan Dean Foster @SF Signal, HERE.

Among other interesting items, Mr. Foster discusses:
– How hard it is to publish outside your genre once you’re established
– How writing fiction and non-fiction isn’t that different (you just have to play closer attention to sources in non-fiction)
– How fiction and non-fiction are all about sharing.

Great stuff.
