Interview - Illusion TV
Bravo on yesterday's SAT questions. While I enjoyed them all, I actually laughed at "Kvothe is to Harry Potter as pudding is to cats." That was probably my favorite, though I did enjoy the buffy the vampire slayer one as well.

I had a longer post planned for today, but it's delayed due to a digital camera spasm of a mysterious sort. Hopefully it'll be sorted out by tomorrow...

For now, if you're bored, you can go enjoy the most recent interview HERE.

I just read your interview, and was struck by your 'truth detector' comment. If you haven't ever read James Halperin's The Truth Machine, I highly recommend it to you. He did a superb job of imagining the effects of a truth machine's developement. Much like OS Card, sometimes his politics get in the way, but the book is great!

"That said, I’ve also got a not-for-children children’s book in the works. It’s like a cross between Calvin and Hobbes and Neil Gaiman’s Coraline. I’m hoping to see that come out in 2008."

Oooh, that sounds interesting...

*giggles at the "Aperture Science" comment. :)

I figured at least a few people would get that joke....

Great interview. Can't wait to read the "not-for-children" children's book. I loved Neil Gaiman's "childrens" books, but there's no way i'm reading them to my 5 year old any time soon. Coraline practically gave ME nightmares, although part of it was the creepy illustrations.

Good evening, Pat.
Would you be a dear and check this out?

I realize, of course, that you need another place for rabid fans to track your down as much as... cats need pudding.

A picture book from you would be lovely and probably very twisted. Still lovely. So, not appropriate for one of the library's preschool storytimes, huh?

Oh no. I can't get into goodreads. It would just suck up more and more of my time.

Get thee behind me goodreads....

You can handle it!
How can you resist the siren call of more starred ratings? 4.72 out of 5 from a total of 260 votes isn't too shabby. None of that Amazon choad nonsense of rounding down to 4 stars... I plan to link it to my myspace account and ditch my terribly outdated reading log. Now if they would just make it facebook friendly it would be perfect!

You know you want to.
All your friends are doing it.
The cool kids all hang out there.

I just read your interview and:

AH! Your so awesome! I know this is probably kind of mundane, since your an author and hense a reader of course, but aah! Neil and Susannah are my favourite authors. After you read Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, you have to read The Ladies of Grace Adieu (also by Susannah Clarke, though you probably know of it, of course)! Not that I want to shove reading material down your throat but it is the most delightful collection of fairy tales, most of them all tie in with JS&Mr.N in some form or another (*would quite happily rave about both books for hours but knows that it wouldn't be healthy*). :D
I haven't read Signal to Noise though, I'm going to have to look out for it. I can almost never find a decent collection of Neil Gaiman's books in my country. But! I have my dealer... I will inquire to him about this...

Anyways, best be that before I rant all over the place and we'll need a mop.

Hey Pat, just curious. Do you ever watch LOST? The show is pretty much one of the best t.v. shows currently running.

Anyway, just wondering.

Ladies, you’d never have to wonder if that guy at the bar was feeding you a line of shit.

What, they can't tell that already? There's a very simple and reliable procedure for determining this.

1. Take an ordinary coin, and toss it in the air.
2. Catch it.
3. If it comes up heads, he's full of shit.
4. If it comes up tails, he's full of shit.
5. If you fail to catch it, and it somehow manages to come up neither heads nor tails, but catches on the edge... he's full of shit.


...I'm not saying this because I think all guys are full of shit (I happen to be, after all, a guy, whom I hope is usually not full of shit). I'm saying this because bars are institutions that were specifically... um... instituted... with the express purpose of providing a locale where people could hang out, and meet people, with the aim of bullshitting to a sufficient degree so as to arrive somewhere in the vicinity of their pants. :)
