Interviews With The Fantastic
InterGalactic Interview With Jonah Knight
by Edmund R. Schubert
(Recorded at RavenCon, Richmond, VA, April 2014; edited for clarity and supplemented with
some other material via email)
As a musician, Jonah Knight has been music or filk Guest of Honor four times, most recently at
ConCarolinas 2014. (For those unfamiliar with the term, Filk is a musical culture, genre, and
community tied to science fiction/fantasy fandom.) He has to date released six albums about
ghosts, monsters, steampunk, and other cool stuff, including a soundtrack for James Maxey's
superhero novel Nobody Gets the Girl. He has recently begun performing at geek/alt weddings
for people who don't want their day ruined by the chicken dance.
He is also a podcaster. His show Pros And Cons (www.prosandconspodcast.blogspot.com), co-hosted with Mikey Mason, was an official 2013 Parsec Finalist. The show, about geek music and
convention culture, is released weekly. Additionally, he serves as the show-runner
(developmental editor) for Antimatter Press (www.antimatterpress.com) focusing on episodic
and serialized fiction in an electronic medium.
