There are plenty of things I could say about the interview Charlaine has given to UK Mag, SciFi Now.
But I’m saying nothing, because superlatives really aren’t required.
Just read this shit, roll around in it for a bit, and AND SAVOUR THE DAMN MOMENT.
If Alan Ball had kept his mouth shut, no one would have ever known about it…I don’t even want to go into [how Bill died] because every time I think about it I get mad at Alan. We’ve had such a great relationship, and that’s the only time I’ve ever gotten peeved at him.”
If only Alan Ball had done (or not done) a lot of things. I’m willing to bet that’s not the only time she’s ever gotten peeved at him.
“I try and stay away from it because even though I like to hear what the readers think, it’s not going to change any decisions. I think the TV series has had an influence over how people want it to end, because some readers are really in love with the TV depiction, and that may not match the characters that I actually wrote.”
What? What the hell now? The tv depiction of certain characters doesn’t match the characters that she actually wrote? Surely not! Charlaine might not have been joking when she said she’s heading into hiding after the last book. Some people just aren’t reading the books she’s writing…indeed.
I reclaim our beloved books from you, Ball…but keep talking, Charlaine, because it’s music to my ears.
Thanks to luvtheviking for the scans.
