John Joseph Adams interviews Kay Kenyon on Sci Fi Wire about her latest book, A World Too Near.Kay describes her lead, Titus Quinn, as a "former starship pilot, and, against his will, former prince of a demon city. [It's also] about Titus coming back to a place of demons and wonders--a pocket universe called the Entire--to redeem himself and save a lost daughter. The redemption involves a kind of labor of Hercules, the sort of mythic thing you can never really expect to pull off. He has to bring down a 100,000-year-old castle belonging to the masters of the universe."
Hey, I'd read that (if I hadn't already)!
