Lois McMaster Bujold en interview


Lois McMaster Bujold est en interview sur Ligthspeed. L'occasion pour elle de revenir sur sa série culte, celle des Vorkosigan et sur le dernier livre qu'elle a écrit, CryoBurn. Elle parle également de son procédé d'écriture ou de l'impact des ventes d'e-books sur ses royalites. 

Extrait : 

Your latest book, CryoBurn, came out in 2010. In it, Miles goes investigates a cryogenics corporation that the dying go to freeze themselves, gambling that one day their illness will be curable. Could you tell us a little about the process of creating that novel? 

I’d been thinking about doing something with the demographic and social-psychological implications of cryonics for at least a decade and a half before I came to grips with CryoBurn, due to knowing a reader who worked for Alcor. A lost Miles’s hallucinogenic encounter with a young street kid was sloshing around for years as an unwritten scene unattached to any further story. I had the book’s opening line, “Angels were falling all over the place,” hanging in air (well, jotted in a notebook) for some months before it slotted into its current position. The story’s last line had been sitting in my head for maybe fifteen or twenty years.

Rappelons que J'ai Lu propose une réédition du cycle de Vorkosigan dès octobre.
