About this title


In the spring of 1996, Ken Rand sold his first interview to Talebones magazine. The interview (with the late Roger Zelazny) was the first of thirty interviews with speculative fiction writers, a ten year run that ended in the spring of 2006. Human Visions reprints those interviews, giving us a glimpse into the minds and hearts of the best writers of SF and Fantasy. Rand's questions, past and present, help define the essence of the genre. Interviews include: Kevin J. Anderson . Greg Bear . Ben Bova . Edward Bryant Lois McMaster Bujold . Jack Cady . C.J. Cherryh . Charles de Lint . Michael & Kathleen Gear . Joe Haldeman . James Hogan K.W. Jeter . Kay Kenyon . Sharon Lee and Steve Miller Jonathan Lethem . Louise Marley . Vonda McIntyre . Eric Nylund . Tom Piccirilli . Tim Powers . Bill Ransom . Spider Robinson . Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith Fred Saberhagen . Dan Simmons . Peter Straub . Amy Thomson . Harry Turtledove . Connie Willis . Roger Zelazny

From Booklist:

Since retiring from broadcast and print journalism in 1992, Rand has generated a stream of finely crafted stories and inventive novels, such as Dadgum Martians Invade the Lucky Nickel Saloon! (2006). Among his best pieces have been his interviews with some of fantasy and sf's leading lights. Originally published in Talebones magazine and collected here for the first time are 30 fascinating glimpses inside the minds of such outstanding and best-selling creators as Kevin J. Anderson, Joe Haldeman, and Peter Straub. The stars share the spotlight with such other masters as Spider Robinson, Harry Turtledove, and, in Rand's first interview, the late Roger Zelazny. Along with insights into the assembled writers' sources of inspiration, such little-known biographical tidbits as Greg Bear's talent for illustration and the enduring influence of Lawrence of Arabia on Lois McMaster Bujold are disclosed. Complemented by a preface on Rand's interviewing methods and an interview with the interviewer, this collection is one both fans and aspiring authors will savor. Carl Hays
