Scrivener Soapbox Interview


October 15, 2015 by Laird

John Langan and I went upstate to visit the movie set of “–30–” this afternoon. More on that tomorrow. Meanwhile, here’s a recording of an interview I recently did with Tj Redig of Scrivener Soapbox.

    Very worthwhile listen! Nice to hear your physical voice behind the literary one.
    Also, I did not know how perilously close we blue collars were to never having read “The Light is the Darkness”, assuming it remained a collectors print. That is one of my favorites period. Both from a great story telling standpoint and as a battery for personal praxis.

    Jumping tracks now, As things become arguably more dystopian, artists/writers/musicians (original) will become more and more esteemed. At least it’s seems a plausible reactionary psychology against the flotsam and jetsam of a society that “knows the price of everything and the value of nothing”. Certainly more valued by community.

    Poetry is a tool that I am only now recognizing its potency, both subjectively and objectively.

    Carl Abrahamssson has a book of essays about these very sorts of things called “Resonances” that is worth a read as the armada of writers springing forth to commentate the journey seem to be gaining momentum.
    I suspect that fleet headed by a surly seeming fellow with a beard, a dog and an eyepatch.

    Thank you for the tip on Abrahamsson. I’m glad things turned out as they did for The Light Is the Darkness. I hope to collect it in a book of short novels one day. Am writing some quasi prequels as well.
