Do you have hope for a good Queen & Country movie? (I'll admit that I love Q&C, which is what got me into reading the rest of your work.)— thelonelyskeptic
I have great hopes for the Q&C movie — everyone involved, everyone I’ve spoken to, are precisely the kind of people I had always hoped would be on the project. It’s a long way from “wants to make a movie” to “movie is released,” we all know that, so my fingers are crossed. But yes, I am very encouraged.
I'm going to be mean now, so feel free to ignore this :D From your Reading Room interview: "I am not going to write a how-to manual on the best way to murder someone." Did you read Ellis' Dead Pig Collector? If so, did you like it?— matabichomental
Hah! You misunderstand me, sir, and you’re reading far more into that interview than is warranted. I’m not indicting Warren. Understanding the difference between fiction and non is only the start — what the reader does with the text is beyond the author’s control.
Writers lie professionally. Never forget that ;)
Dear Greg, I hope you don't take this the wrong wat but are you proud of the Whiteout movie? I know it wasn't a succes with critics and box office but I really enjoyed it. Yes the comic was better but the movie wasn't terrible in my opinion. I hope that my opinion matters to you and I really hope that Whiteout Melt will one day happen.— Anonymous
No, I’m not. I think there’s some good stuff in it, and some very good performances by a couple of the cast, but on the whole, I think the film absolutely failed to honor the source material, and, most crucially, I think the film chickened out about Carrie and turned her into just another cliché.
That was their right, however, and they paid Steve and me good money to do just that, so I really can’t complain. It’s not something I lose sleep over ;)
