Da es in der nächsten ROGUE NATION leider kein Interview geben wird, hier nun zehn Fragen an den Crime/Noir Meister James Sallis - gestellt wurden sie von Keith Rawson.
What was the first story you ever wrote, and what happened to it?
There were of course early miscarriages, but the first story I wrote
that felt like a story, walked like a story, and quacked like a story
was “Kazoo.” It was published in New Worlds. Two others quickly
followed, one for F&SF, and one for Damon Knight’s Orbit,
inculcating in me the absurd and sweetly naive notion that I could make a
living writing. From such moments are lives ruined.
When you sold your first piece of writing, how did you celebrate?
I was 21 and impoverished – excellent training for a writer, by the way
– so I probably took my wife out for a fine meal at Howard Johnson’s.
