It's already been mentioned elsewhere on this board, but I thought it worthy of its own thread --

There's an interview of Gordon this month over at The Internet Review of Science Fiction (www.irosf.com). There's also a different interview of him in the April Locus.

Despite already knowing Gordon quite well and working with him on a daily basis and having read both interviews within a week or two of each other, I found both interviews quite interesting, so I expect all of you will too.

I read the LOCUS Van Gelder interview last night. Gordon's profession is words and mine is pictures so unfortunately our paths don't cross very often, but I really enjoyed the hell out of his interview. He was very forthright and insightful and it was one of my favorite LOCUS reads in a while.

It made me wish I knew the guy a little better. I respect the good work that he's doing.

Well, Gordon does commission 11 pieces of cover art every year...

Just a clarification that the online Locus material is excerpts, not the entire interview.

"In Lands That Never Were: Swords & Sorcery Stories from the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction due in September 2004."

That sounds mighty cool...

Since I don't have his email address, I will offer my thanks here to Mr. Van Gelder for his kind words elsewhere.

Jeez, where did that come from TCO? My obsequiousness occurred way back in April.

Actually, I don't see it as obsequious, as any promotion of Gordon is promotion of the magazine. He's the primary creative force behind the magazine (whereas writers would be the primary creative force on the face of the magazine), so an interview with him is like an article about the magazine.

I do like the word "obsequious" though. BTW, looks like your "N" key is having some issues. Might want to have someone look at that.

JJA: Checking the time of TCO's post I'm betting he was drunk as a skunk.
