On the Nineth Day of Tesseracts: An Interview With Brent Hayward

TT: What is your name?

BH: Brent Hayward

TT:Your current location?
Toronto, ON

TT: What is the name of your story in T14?
The Brief Medical Career of Fine Sam Fine, Tesseracts 14

TT: What inspired you to write your story?
Much as I would like to give some profound response, maybe about co-joined twins physically representing a dichotomy we all surely feel inside, as humans sharing the strange journey called life, it was an episode of Jerry Springer that got this story cooking.

TT: Since this collection is about Strange Canadian Stories, what is one
of the strangest things that has ever happened to you personally?

Being raised in the suburbs.

TT: What is a strange question you would like to ask other authors?
A shout out to my buddy Dennis, who has been asking me pertinent questions like this almost daily, for the past decade: Would you rather fight a toothless, de-clawed grizzly, or ten rabid squirrels?

TT: Thanks!

Brent is the author of Filaria. His short fiction has appeared in several publications, including OnSpec, ChiZine and Horizons SF. He lives in Toronto, where he is completing his second novel, The Fecund's Melancholy Daughter, which will be published in the Spring of 2011.
