Interview with Karen Traviss

A long interview with Karen Traviss over at Strange Horizons on her Wess'har books. She also has interesting things to say about how she became a professional writer, though some depressing thoughts on the British publishing scene:
My gut feel is that we're apologists in the U.K. and prefer to dress up SF in pseudointellectualism so that it's respectable. "My spaceships and dragons are more intellectually meaningful than your spaceships and dragons."

Good stuff on how her plots flow from her characters. Character is destiny.
