Here’s an interview with Bruce Sterling in Reason magazine. Lots of gems; my favorite: “Real novelists die in the arms of their fourth wife of cirrhosis of the liver at age 57, but science fiction writers are getting bestsellers by chewing over the supertrilogy of the trilogy?s trilogy at age 82. ” Bruce Sterling gives a talk every year at South by Southwest and a nice party at his luxurious house. He’s a cool guy, but one can’t help but envy his fame and wealth (which surprises even him).
BTW, the author of the interview, Mike Godwin, wrote a good book review of Jessica Litman’s book on copyright .
