The Devil & Jeremy C. Shipp

Jeremy Shipp was recently interviewed by the devil about his book Vacation. The things our authors do for us!

Here’s an excerpt:

Devil: First of all, let’s get this out of the way. Do you dislike to avoid abstaining from not eating babies?

Jeremy C. Shipp: What?

D: Just answer the question!

JCS: No.

D: Ah, you do eat babies then.

JCS: No, I meant that I won’t answer such a confusing question.

D: So you’re not as smart as you claim to be.

JCS: I’m not claiming anything.

D: You wrote a novel. Isn’t that another way of saying, “Look at me. I’m smarter than everyone else. I belong on a pedestal so that I can throw tangerines at people’s kidneys.”

JCS: Are you evil or just stupid?

D: Moving on. Let’s talk about your novel.

JCS: Finally.

D: What inspired you to write a story that’s pure evil?
