Interview Has Gone Live (James Patrick Kelly)

So Marshall marshallpayne1 has this super sekrit list of people he would like to interview. And one day he told me he was reading Jim Kelly's short stories. I know what that means. If you ever learn that Marshall is reading your work, devouring it, then it means Marshall is contemplating asking you for an interview. But Marshall had only met Jim once, at an ArmadilloCon or some such nonsense, a long time ago. But I knew Jim well enough to ask if he was willing to spill his guts all over Marshall's blog. He was. He did.

Marshall has interviewed both up and coming writers and also some of the 'greats' in the field. Jim Kelly is, without a doubt, one of the masters of the short form. He teaches in the Stonecoast MFA program, one of the few to WELCOME genre writers. (Usually the application says "genre and pop fiction writers need not apply.") Go, read. It's a really interesting interview that tells you things about Jim you never knew, I'll bet. Plus, he's edited a new anthology for Tachyon and it's just coming out NOW.
