Interview Terry Brooks
Terry Brooks est en interview sur le site Wired. Il parle surtout de son dernier roman, The Wards of Faerie, qui vient de paraître. Il revient également sur ses débuts d’écrivain.
|Wired : Tell us about your new novel, The Wards of Faerie. What’s it about ?
Terry Brooks : This is the first in a trilogy that I have been thinking about for quite a bit of time. It’s in the future of the Shannara world, not in the prehistory where I have been working. It is a direct sequel to the High Druid set of books, and it’s about a topic that has been discussed ever since I wrote Elfstones back in the day — 1982 or whatever it was when it was published — about the Elfstones themselves, which were forged in the ancient world of Faerie before humans, and nobody knows what happened to them, and somebody is always saying, “What happened to the other Elfstones ? The only ones that survived are these blue Elfstones, and we’ve never heard anything more.” So, after not having an answer for that for the better part of 30 years, I thought maybe I’d come up with one, and that’s what this book is about.
