“… despite being an Arthur C. Clarke Award winner and multiple-time nominee, despite 20 years in this business and accolades by top reviewers and writers such as Ian McDonald, Pat Cadigan, David Brin, Patrick Ness, Justina Robson, Adam Roberts, Peter F. Hamilton and Jon Courtenay Grimwood, I have been struggling to sell work, and because of that I have been struggling to write. Now, that is no big news. A great many writers are struggling right now. We are legion. But. I am asking myself whether science fiction doesn’t deserve all the bad press it gets if it keeps putting its money where its values are.”
