This is the first of hopefully many co-interviews for BookBanter, with Kaye Cloutman of the San Francisco and Sacramento Book Reviews. Justin Cronin is the author of The Summer Guest and Mary and O'Neil, and the first book in a epic trilogy about vampires and a post-apocalyptic world called The Passage. In the interview, Justin talks about how he got started writing, where the ideas and storylines for The Passage came from (totally worth hearing), why he began writing The Passage, who some of his influences are, and how he feels readers should handle dealing with an almost 800 page book.
For the first time, a BookBanter interview was recorded on video, which you can enjoy below, split into two parts:
For the next couple of weeks I'll be on vacation, traveling to distant England and Sweden. There will be a new episode on August featuring a collection of book reviews, as well as the overdue written interview with Gardner Dozois.
Until then, keep reading!
