|Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies.

Prime Books is doing interviews of some (or possibly all? I don't want to misrepresent either way) of the authors in their upcoming Year's Best SF volume. So you can see what I had to say.
You were eloquent and intelligent, as ever.
What a strange set of questions.
I mean, your answers were eloquent, but I probably would never have asked that set of questions. They're almost banal, but in enough of an off-kilter way to provoke some interesting responses.
And in any case, I never offered congratulations for having your work accepted into that collection. So, overdue congratulations.
I have no idea what I would have asked if I was given Jennifer's job and had to interview an entire anthology full of authors about stories of theirs I hadn't selected. Off-kilter enough to provoke interesting responses is a good result, I feel.
You sound so like yourself!
I don't know why I'm surprised. And it certainly made me want to read the story.
Is it matociquala
who had the "this is
my professional persona" tagline for awhile? Um. Yes. It's very nice to pick a profession where "HELLO I AM A GIANT NERD" is something I can highlight rather than playing down for professional interviews.
I always just randomly tell people what I want them to write for me, but it so seldom works! No, it was an Elise necklace that had that story in it. I thought the squishy floors were because of Z and
talking about that theory of floors in that same Farthing Party?
Bracelet, not necklace, but yes.
As for the floors, if so, it was a conversation next to me that filtered into my subconscious, not one I was part of. Which absolutely happens to people, so very cool that it happened to me.
And I totally want that restaurant in my neighborhood.
I want it in your neighborhood, too! Your neighborhood would be convenient!
