Voici une petite interview de Mike Resnick à lire ici
"Athans: Please define “fantasy” in 25 words or less.
Resnick: Fantasy is fiction that purposely and knowingly breaks one or more of the known laws governing the universe.
Athans: Please define “science fiction” in 25 words or less.
Resnick: Science fiction is concerned with an alternative past, an altered present, or an imagined future and obeys the known laws governing the universe.
Athans: What advice can you give an aspiring fantasy author on how to approach action scenes? Is there such a thing as too much action?
Resnick: I’d tell him to study the particular market he’s considering, and put in a little more or a little less action than the competition—not so much or so little that it doesn’t fit the format—to make his story stand out a bit.
Yes, you can have too much of anything. Look at the movie Van Helsing. One supernatural creature can be fascinating and/or terrifying; hundreds of them are simply boring. As for action scenes, you have to make them subjective. Getting hit or cut hurts, and hero or not, if your character doesn’t feel pain, there’s no reason why your reader should feel apprehension.
