First of all, I’d like to thank my friend Jeff for giving me the opportunity to step into the Ecstatic Days limelight for a few days, and secondly, thanks to all of you for your very kind welcome.
I’d like to start things off with a brief conversation I had with one of my favorite authors and all-around cool human beings, Paul Di Filippo, about his new book Cosmocopia. Illustrated by Jim Woodring, this novel – complete with a box and a jigsaw puzzle (!) – will be available from Payseur & Schmidt very soon.
Would you mind introducing yourself to my readers?
Not at all! My name is Paul Di Filippo, aged 53, native Rhode Islander still resident in Providence, author of some 25 books, whose career began either in 1977, 1982, 1985 or 1995, depending on which benchmark one uses. Partnered with Deborah Newton for the past 33 years. Faithful devotee of the cocker spaniel breed.
