UNLOCKED: Interview with Jason Sizemore!
Posted April 14, 2017on:
When the Apex Magazine Revive the Drive hit $3500, it unlocked me doing a No Boundaries interview with Jason Sizemore, editor-in-chief of the magazine. The fundraiser reached that goal a few days ago, and we recorded the interview the other night. I had a very short window of time to get questions from Jason’s friends, co-workers, his nemesis, and I even got a few questions from my friends who have no idea who he is.
What’s a No Boundaries interview? It’s where I could ask Jason absolutely anything, and no topics were off limits. I did make him blush, but we didn’t get it on camera.
Enjoy the interview! And head over to the Apex Magazine Revive the Drive store, pick yourself up a subscription, a subscription bundle, a signed manuscript, short story critique, mystery boxes, book bundle, home made crafts, and brand new in the Drive store are – holy crap there is a copy of The Weird Compendium that is signed by Ann and Jeff Vandermeer! The Drive runs through April 17th, and the funds raised will allow Jason and team to purchase more weird surreal fiction, to pay artists and writers more, and to give fan of the magazine more of what they’ve come to enjoy. A fitting anniversary for a magazine that’s coming up to it’s 100th issue, wouldn’t you say?
oh, anyway, here’s a link for the interview. I don’t know how to embed a 22 minute video into a WordPress article.
click the link, don’t click this picture. the picture doesn’t go anywhere.
What did we talk about? Everything from heated toilet seats, to llamas, to something embarrassing he did at a Con, to who he wants on his Apocalypse team, to famous Apex parties (lots of people wanted me to ask him what’s in the famous Apex Party Punch!), to books he wishes he could experience for the first time. And yes, we even talked some serious stuff about Apex sales and editing.
