  1. Larry, I say this in all seriousness, you need to develop a higher opinion of yourself.

    That doesn’t mean get pompous, it just means get used to the fact that yes, in fact, you are an honest to god SFF/Horror writer, that people are willing to pay to read.

    Never forget how lucky you are to be that; but appreciate it for the achievement that it is.

    Also, get used to being interviewed, and grilled, by both fans, and by people who have no clue as to what you write.

    From there, the next bit will be a bit easier… a bit… Learn to relax a bit more, and speak slower.

    I know you’re a pretty high energy idea guy, especially about stuff you’re passionate about; and that speaking faster and faster is your normal mode when you are more excited, but it doesn’t work so well for interviews and con panels etc…

    Now, all that said, good show.

    The con schedule for FiestaCon/Westercon 62 was just announced (Tempe AZ, first weekend of July ’09). PNH and TNH are going to be the Keynotes there; with Alan Dean Foster as the guest of honor.

    Given your book is on the calendar for June release, and Phoenix is a 45 minute flight, think we can see you there? I know it’s the 4th that weekend, but I think this one is going to be worth going to.

  2. I enjoyed it, Larry.

    If you want people to take Monster Hunter International seriously, then you should probably try to be more serious in your interviews. If you want people to think that your book is going to be a lot of fun, then go ahead and show them that you are a funny and fun loving guy with a lot of energy. Good job!

  3. Larry, that interview WAS a fair representation of who you are- if anything you were MORE subdued than usual! Nicely done..

  4. Larry you Rock! I hope the segment sounded ok, there was a glicth during our talk when someone opened the door with another guest in-two so I edited that out.

    I hope to hear more from Larry, and perhaps I can bring my camera to the gun store 🙂

  5. This reminds me, I’m taking a fantasy illustration class, taught by one Ron Lizorty, who has done quite a bit of work on a variety of monster movies, though lacking a good filmography(google wasn’t working for me) the only title I can remember is “Galaxy of Terror”. I’ll have to take your book in to show him.

  6. I don’t think I sound nasal. :p

    Finally got a chance to watch it. Not bad. I am actually a very good public speaker, but that’s usually with a room full of live people. I’ve kept 75 adults awake for 5 hours straight before, so I know I can do it. The interview thing is something totally new. I’m going to have to get used to that.
