July 12, I don't know if that's humanly possible for anyone besides Ray Bradbury, but the underlying principle is right on target: Nothing teaches quite so effectively as doing. And you need to write new stories; it's easy to fall into the trap of revising the same old stuff over and over again.
There comes a point where you can revise the life right out of a story if you're not careful, so you need to set the old ones aside and write new material as often as possible. SFRevu: Following each story is an afterword from the author, a few paragraphs about how the writer came up with the story, what influenced them to put pen to page. Do these afterwords appear after each story on the actual site, or is this something you decided to add when putting the anthology together?
I ask the authors in each issue to write a short essay about the creation of their tale and then share them with the world.
They're not on the official IGMS website, though; they go up on my blog when each new issue is published. Your book Dreaming Creek is due out sometime in October.
Could you tell us some about that? Plug away! It's actually pretty hard to categorize, which is why its being published by a small press publisher LBF Books.

I originally sent it to a couple of agents in New York, and one of them called me on the phone to say that she really liked the novel, but it would be hard to sell to a New York publisher because their marketing departments wouldn't know how to categorize it. She said that when marketing people don't know what to do, they simply don't do anything at all.
So she said I should take the book to a small press, because the little guys are more likely to publish something unconventional. From what I've learned about the publishing industry over the past few years, that was very good advice. The story itself is about a high school teacher named Danny Wakeman who has spent sixteen years believing that his childhood friend, Marcus, saved his life after an accident. But Danny's perspective on the world gets turned inside-out when he and the woman he wants to marry, Sara McBride, trade bodies, and get stuck that way. Over the course of the novel, this new perspective forces him to see a lot of things in new ways, including his old friend Marcus, who turns out to be the source of much misery, both old and new.
SFRevu: "Fat Farm" is one of my favorite short stories, it would make a great Twilight Zone were the show still running, so I really enjoyed the graphic short included in the anthology. How did that come about? Did you decide specifically on "Fat Farm" being turned into a graphic short beforehand, or were there a few other stories you contemplated as well?
OSC: We commissioned three scripts for different stories. Then we let artist Jin Han choose which he'd start with. Naturally, he chose the one where he got to draw the contrast in the changing character. But even though everybody worked for shamefully low fees, it was still almost as expensive as the rest of the issue to do this one short comic, and we had to face reality - it simply wasn't cost effective to do comics.
So the other scripts languish, waiting. Is there still enough there to be mined for a future Enderverse novel? Or can those wanting more expect to get their fix via IGMS? OSC: There are two novels coming in the Ender universe.
The term "Enderverse" actually makes my skin crawl a little. I'm wrong to feel that way -- it's cute and we need a one-word term for the version of the future in which the Ender and Bean novels take place. The first will appear on 11 November: Ender in Exile , which mostly takes place between chapters 14 and 15 of Ender's Game.
The second, Shadows in Flight , is a direct sequel to both Shadow of the Giant and Children of the Mind , bringing the two series together at the end. Meanwhile, there are still plenty of stories to mine from that particular future history.
Or is it still in the early development stages? And will it differ from Ender's Game? Perhaps tie in with the other Enderverse novels?
Christopher Yost's script is by far the best adaptation of EG that has ever existed for a visual medium. I've seen Pasqual Ferry's art, and it's brilliant. Marvel is really throwing everything they have at this comics series and are doing a superb job.
I think the fans of EG will be very happy -- and people who've never read the book will get as good a telling of the tale from the visual medium as from the very-internal novel. SFRevu: You know, with all these comics getting greenlighted for major motion pictures I know you get this question a LOT, so thanks for your patience.
OSC: Actually, few people realize that comics are a wonderful way to pitch a story for film precisely for the reason that you just stated -- the comic book looks like a storyboard! Few people in Hollywood -- especially among studio executives -- know how to read a script.
They don't understand how much the actors and the camera bring to the story -- things that can't show up in a script. The result is that you have to write scripts to be READ instead of filmed -- in effect, novels in disguise. But this is not good screenwriting. It's just a necessary step in order to babystep the executives through the reading process.
Now, with the brilliant Pasqual Ferry visuals, we'll just hand them the comic books and say, This is what it'll look like. You've successfully cloned Orson Scott Card 2. What's your involvement with these other sites? OSC: I pay for all the sites. In more ways than one!
