IC: So, besides writing Mercury Falls and Mercury Rises, what do you do in real life?
IC: You’ve got to know the adage, “write what you know.” You’ve now written two books on mostly invisible spirits, the Apocalypse, and Armageddon. What are you implying here?
RK: I start out writing what I know and then get distracted by angels and demons and explosions. What I know is boring. The stuff that goes on in my imagination is pretty wild though.
IC:. Christians and humor, humor and Christians: Go.
IC: Who’s the most humorous character in Scripture and why?
IC: One of the things I like about your writing is that while Mercury 1 and 2 are absolutely not theology textbooks, you clearly know more about theology than the average Joe, and it shows. How’d you get to be so smart?
IC: Your writing gets compared a lot to Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams. Are you honored, offended, or nonplussed by that comparison? Are there any other writers you’d say are an influence?
IC: Is it a requirement to live in California to skewer the Apocalypse fakers? Or amazingly convenient?
IC: Speaking of everlasting battles against evil, how are those moles in your yard?
IC: Since a lot of IC readers are bloggers, I have to ask: do you miss blogging? Or has Twitter filled that part of your soul?
IC: Last but not least: Is Mercury Catholic or Reformed?
I want to thank Rob for his graciousness and his support of all humorous writing in bloggerdom. He's done a lot to encourage it in others, and writes hysterical stuff himself. Best wishes to him and I encourage you to read Mercury Falls and Mercury Rises.
