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 Im going to spend time writing, I wanted to enjoy the world Im writing about (and I mean world in a non-planetary sense--all writers inhabit a world when they write). Writing isnt 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.
