Interviews With The Fantastic
InterGalactic Interview With Laura Anne Gilman
by Lawrence M. Schoen
Laura Anne Gilman's latest novel is The Cold Eye, the second book in her Devil's West series
(an excerpt appears elsewhere in this issue), a fantasy set clearly in the Old West. Her Vineart
War trilogy (the first volume of which brought her a Nebula nomination for Best Novel) was
high fantasy. And her Cosa Nostradamus have produced three separate urban fantasy series.
Under the name Anna Leonard she's written paranormal romance, and as L. A. Kornetsky she's
released a series of mysteries. Before any of that there were assorted media tie-in works
(Quantum Leap, Buffy, Poltergeist), as well as years spent as an editor. Most of that happened in
New York, but for the last few years she's made her home in Seattle, Washington.
