A little background first. Neil Ayres — author, friend of this blog, and cyber-henchman for the Blue Pootle — is about to launch an online venture that may (or may not be) a magazine devoted to magical realism and/or light fantasy. Neil has asked me to contribute an article based on my interview with David Mitchell (which is available from here).
The thing is, what with my tenosynivitis (translation: my wrist tendons are inflamed), I’m not able to transcribe it. I need a wonderful reader of this blog to volunteer.
I hear your sardonic chuckle. But wait! Remember what I was saying last time about the limited availability of Déjà Vu, and how it’ll cost you an arm and leg to get hold of a copy? Well, the person who transcribes this interview will receive a free copy of the Déjà Vu: Special Edition. This special edition is a physical perfect-bound book. The text has been revised. It has no ISBN. There will probably be no more than three copies of it printed, ever.
Sound tempting? Leave a comment. You’ll have to transcribe using the audio file here and the deadline is September 7th.
