Good article, Grin.  I'd never thought of Greek mythology as being fantasy, but I suppose it is, isn't it?

Quote
storytellers around the campfires were always telling stories of heroes and monsters and magic and God and miracles, this is the stuff of human storytelling

I like the way that sounds.  Makes me want to write something, but I've got to go to work instead :/

BTW, Grin, do you interview these people face to face, by phone, or in writing?

Hi blunt, Mostly over the phone. I like to do face-to-face interviews where possible but most of the 'literati' in Australia hang out in Sydney and Melbourne, so face-to-face is only possible if they're coming to Brisbane for a book signing etc.  If I'm running short on time, or there's no other alternative, I'll do an email Q&A. I try not to do this too much because the great thing about conversations is they can lead you off in directions you wouldn't have thought of when sitting down and writing a list of questions.

Yep - I suppose it's more like a naturally developing conversation that way - it's surprising how answers to questions can spark a diverse range of new questions.  To get the most out of an e-mail Q&A, you would have to send at least two sets of questions, but I suppose that could lead to more and more questions.  If you weren't careful it would never end and the article would never get written :grin:

Sorry I didn't respond sooner - on a whim I pressed the 'Show new replies to your posts' link and this thread came up :scratch:  Dunno why I didn't see it before....
