Two Interviews

Two very interesting interviews turned up in our blog feeds today. The first is at Techland where Lev Grossman interviews Paolo Bacigalupi about his sudden rise to fame, and the pair exchange some snark about literary fiction. And if you think that Paolo really has been an overnight success, go read the interview and find out how long you have to labor in obscurity before you get that sort of success.

The other interview is at World SF where Charles A. Tan talks to Indian SF writer, Samit Basu. There are some fascinating comments about the rapidly changing nature of the book market in India, and about the status of SF and fantasy in India. Also Samit is kind enough to quote Cheryl Morgan.
