just so you know, i interviewed mary robinette kowal, a puppeteer (and writer), who was gracious enough to answer a few questions about such topics as "How does one become a pro puppeteer?"

Video is included.

Really--what an opportunity!
No strings attached?

If the puppeteer is good at what they do (and she is very, very good) I won't even know the strings are there...

I wonder about the reason for the interview. My nephew is one (has been one) and I could probably hook you up with him if it's something you'd be interested in.

I'm actually looking for a guy who walks on big stilts in carnivals for the next interview.

Mostly, I'm just willing to bet the people who read my blog like puppets, and other random, odd professions.

For instance, I interviewed my literary agent's assistant once. Dig through the archives. You can find it.

I'm going to try to branch out into carnies now. Carnies are cool.

Need a professional magician? That's what he does now.
