Ask Gary

Which war does The Monument take place after?

 

Vietnam

 

Are your stories true or based on true events?

 

I've just written a nonfiction book, Guts, The True Stories Behind Hatchet and the Brian Books.

 

What did you need to know to write The Transall Saga?

 

That I loved science fiction when I was a kid.

 

What was the lawsuit over Winterkill about?

 

Someone mistakenly thought I'd written about him. I didn't though.

 

I am writing from an adolescent program for juveniles. What books would you suggest for our group to read? We can only select 4 or 5 books due to our tight budget.

 

I always feel kind of silly recommending my own books but here goes: Soldier's Heart, Harris and Me, Dogsong, and Nightjohn.

 

When were you born?

 

May 17, 1939
