New Weird and parenting

Wired's GeekDad blog has a great interview with "new weird" literary couple Jeff and Ann VanderMeer about raising children in a ultra geeky household, and about why tech geeks should care about the new weird. Wired's also giving away digital copies of a free new book by Jeff called The Situation.

When she was 10, she asked the neighbor's mother "What magazine do you edit?" because she thought all families had their own magazines. As for my fiction, she mostly encountered it as a teenager and made a show of not reading it, but then would talk to her friends about it when she thought I was out of earshot. Which was cute.


(Thanks, Jeff!)
