An Interview about Beasts of the Walking City

Many thanks to Luc Reid, who interviewed me about world-building for his blog at .  It was a lot of fun to talk about this stuff, and he got me thinking:  where did some of these characters come from?  (Hmm, good question.)  How long have I been thinking about this stuff?  (A very long time.)
