Jeff Vandermeer does interviews with authors who have books that have recently come out. He calls his interview series Walking the Plank, and asks the writer questions in an interrogative form similar to that of being stuck out on a plank with many pirates pointing their sharp swords into your chest or back, depending on the pirates. I am totally the wrong person to place on a plank though; if pirates set me out on one, I would probably just jump into the ocean of my own free will because that’s how I roll. Or I would attempt to evade their interrogation by answering with zen-like koans, in an attempt to confuse them. And so, since there is no ocean to jump into online, my plank interview on Jeff’s blog is decidedly evasive and zen-like. You can read it by clicking here.
