My pal Marshall Payne interviewed Nancy Kress at the Nebulas.

I heart Nancy Kress – she gives awesome writerly advice over here and she’s also responsible for one of my favourite books, The White Pipes.

“Act One,” your novella on the final ballot for the Nebula Award for 2010 , is a story of genetic engineering in the near future. What was the inspiration behind this story?

It wasn’t any one thing, but rather a combination: a long-standing interest in the ambiguities of genetic engineering; happening to stumble across a fascinating book on dwarfism; an image of a beautiful woman descending a grimy basement stairs; and a poodle who seems exceptionally adept at reading body language.  Such things cross-fertilize in the mind, and I’m usually surprised by what emerges.
