We talk about how Die Antwoord is not good at fighting, decry that Americans wouldn't understand an action movie set to a rap/rave soundtrack, cringe at Thomm's South African accent, muse functional and quantum immortality and the nature of consciousness, spoil Dollhouse, poke at pensieves, name drop the body thievery in the Night's Dream universe, the weakness of backup clones, the most perfect sphere, how Reddit would kill us all, the particulars of robo-sapien estate law, the legality of marrying Chobits, and the hopes of a consent-teaching sexbot.
Thomm Quackenbush is an author and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Double Dragon publishes four novels in his Night's Dream series (We Shadows, Danse Macabre, and Artificial Gods, and Flies to Wanton Boys). He has sold jewelry in Victorian England, confused children as a mad scientist, filed away more books than anyone has ever read, and tried to inspire the learning disabled and gifted. He is capable of crossing one eye, raising one eyebrow, and once accidentally groped a ghost. When not writing, he can be found biking, hiking the Adirondacks, grazing on snacks at art openings, and keeping a straight face when listening to people tell him they are in touch with 164 species of interstellar beings.
