I was traveling in Australia in 2000 &, as usual, I was looking for bks there that I might not be able to find where I usually live. So I found & I read one of Broderick's bks & learned that he lives in Melbourne. That lead to my arranging to meet him & interview him. He agreed & was a nice guy & the interview is incorporated into a movie of mine called "Don't Walk Backwards". B/c of this, I'll read everything by the guy I can find. Wch, in the US, ain't much. This one? Well, it's called "Sorcerer's World" wch immediately evokes the "Sword & Sorcery" genre wch only Samuel Delaney has ever pulled off in any way that interests me. SO, I've found Broderick's work uneven so far. Some of the bks just seem to be written for money, some seem to truly have a personality behind them. Damien told me that he was mainly writing science bks by the time I met him & I've never seen a single one of those. Of course, I cd start looking for things for sale over the internet & I cd also run out of money very, very quickly.. so I'll stick to used bk stores for now.
