Over on my blog, I just posted an interview with "The Millstone" (April 2004) author Kate Mason.
In this excerpt, Ms. Mason tells us why she writes SF instead of some other genre:
I decided that if I’m going to spend time writing, I wanted to enjoy the world I’m writing about (and I mean “world” in a non-planetary sense--all writers inhabit a world when they write). Writing isn’t necessarily always fun for me; but writing about imagined worlds, where I have the freedom to explore both inner and outer landscapes as I wish, does increase the "fun" quotient. You can also say things in fantasy and sf that may be harder for people to take if placed in mainstream or realistic fiction.
