|The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is the first book in The Inheritance Trilogy. When did the idea for the series first come to you? |
Originally I thought of the story about 14 or 15 years ago, while I was in graduate school. It was probably some kind of reaction to thesis-writing stress; I remember having a vivid and disturbing dream of very strange people. One was a man with stars in his hair. If you tried to touch his hair your hand would just keep going and you’d fall in. Another was a boy juggling these beautiful polished stone balls — which, when you looked closely, turned out to be planets. I woke up in a fever to come up with a narrative to explain these characters. These images sort of fused with all the mythology I’d absorbed over the years and turned into enslaved gods.
