Horror writer Elizabeth Massie is interviewed on this month's episode of Fast Forward: Contemporary Science Fiction. Massie talks about her story collection, The Fear Report, as well as her cartoon art.
In conversation with host Mike Zipser, Massie discusses both light-hearted and dark, disturbing aspects of her work. She also talks about how her writing has changed over the past few years. According to Massie, "I think my earlier work had a lot more children and now it tends to be a lot more adult main characters Š It was like I had all these stories that dealt with children characters that I had to get out on paper."
The January 2005 episode of Fast Forward also features Colleen Cahill's review of the graphic story collection The Book of Ballads, illustrated by Charles Vess, with story adaptations by several writers, including Charles de Lint, Sharyn McCrumb, Neil Gaiman, Lee Smith and Jane Yolen.
In addition, Marianne Petrino reviews the anime feature film Millennium Actress, distributed by Dreamworks.
