Jo Walton Sez . . .
Williams is a remarkably underrated writer. He’s amazingly versatile and he’s never written the same book twice . . . I’ve been reading him enthusiastically and buying every book he’s written since I fell in love with Knight Moves on that long ago train. I’ve been expecting him to become a bestseller at any moment with a big breakout book, but it never quite happens. He keeps on writing one brilliant fascinating book after another without ever quite becoming a star. I don’t understand it. (Can I just say that I don't understand that, either?)
And allow me to say, by way of thank you, that if you haven't read Walton's Farthing series, you should go right out and do it.
And, on the same site, Jason Henninger talks about playing Spore.
