Scott Lynch Interview

Since I'm still reading Red Seas Under Red Skies, the 2nd in Scott Lynch's Gentlemen Bastards series, I figured I would see if I could locate an interview of him.

Yes, I am still enjoying the series.  It's just that I only have so much time in a day...

You need to start with The Lies of Locke Lamora, which is a great read.  Camorr is a grimy, disgusting city, and Locke Lamora grows up to be a major thief, the only way he can survive after being orphaned at a very early age.  I'll admit it took me a while to get into the story, but once I did (and after I accepted the endless curses spoken by Locke and the other characters as just a necessary part of the story), I couldn't wait to get to the end to see what happened.

Obviously, the story then moves on to Red Seas Under Red Skies.

But here's the interview of Mr. Lynch (hippie, as Cartman on South Park would say ;-)).

Glad to see that there are other books that use lots of profane language.

You ain't kidding. ;-)

I don't think there's one page in either book where there isn't cursing, lol.
