This was a real treat to read. Friend #1 meets Friend #2 and writes excellent interview. Most excellent. Go, read, enjoy. Get to know Friend #2 a bit better. Then go tell Friend #1 what a great job he did. Or leave a comment on the forum. Oh and don't forget to buy Friend #2's books and stories. Or Friend #1's for that matter. Or mine. Did I mention I have a story in the November Analog?
