« Secret Histories and Con-Artists: A Roundtable discussion with John Crowley, Jeff Ford, James Morrow, and Tim Powers | Main | Happy Thanksgiving »


Jeff VanderMeer

If you have time during this discussion, and are interested, perhaps you'd be willing to talk about the difference between your initial intent and the finished book. (And, perhaps, the difference between your finished intent and reader interpretation.) In a peripheral way, you do talk about that above, but I'm interested in things like how much surprise you yourselves experience. Do you ever discover you're actually writing about something entirely different than what you thought you were writing about?
