Over time I was distracted and kept plugging away at my reading list. But with the pending publication of The Sword of the Lady in late August, I'm going to ask my questions here in the hopes that Mr. Stirling is "listening" and will take a few minutes to answer them.
- Do you read e-books?
- Do you prefer the Sony Reader or Amazon Kindle?
- Do you have a library card?
- What's your favorite section of the library? Anything come in second after History?
- Do any TV shows, movies, music, or other artistic mediums influence your work?
- Did Diana's Gabaldon's Outlander series inspire the MacKenzie clan in your Emberverse books?
- Do you talk shop over lunch with other New Mexico authors like George R. R. Martin or Stephen R. Donaldson?
- Name one guilty pleasure.
- As a member of the "Double Initial" gang along with fellow authors R. A. Salvatore, Kurt R. A. Giambastiani, and George R. R. Martin, what do you prefer to be called? Steve? Stephen? S. M.?
- Will we eventually see the link between the Nantucket series and the Emberverse series? In other words, we know how the Change has impacted Rudi and his crew and Marion and her crew. But will we ever see them get back together? Will we see the time lines merge? Will it be like Back to the Future where actions in the past will be represented in the future? Will we see Rudi and his descendants unearth the wreckage of the Eagle along with other Bronze Age artifacts?
- Is the Moon Woman religion a Bronze Age version of Wicca?
