John Scalzi Talks About the Changing World of Publishing with the Arizona Republic

John Scalzi - Credit Athena ScalziA few weeks ago I spoke with John Scalzi for the Arizona Republic about his upcoming appearance at the Poisoned Pen tomorrow, which wraps up his current signing/ukulele concert tour.

I admit, I was fairly intimidated – he’s one of my favorite authors and I’ve seen the deftness with which he dispatches morons on his twitter feed and blog. But he was cool and I didn’t feel like too much of a fanboy.

I’d have loved to talk about the Hugo controversy, but, considering the story wouldn’t run till after the Hugos, it seemed academic. Oh well.

End of All ThingsStill it was a great talk about the state of the publishing industry and his new novel, The End of All Things. You can read the full interview on

Also, make sure and check out his book recommendations!
