"I aligned with fantasy as a young science fiction / fantasy reader—I liked the fluffy stuff. Unicorns, dragons. Space was cool but mythical creatures, magic, wizards, talking trees—that was what inspired me when I was ten, eleven, twelve years old. I put that stuff aside when I began to have Pretensions—when I became a Serious-Minded Young Man—which I don't regret, it’s great to go through phases. But I'm glad as a grown-up to have come back around to magic stuff, magic is really such a wonderful idea."
