Following up to yesterday’s post, here’s the second question/answer:

2. Give me the old chicken-egg breakdown as it applies here. Which threads came first with this novel – characters, concept, something else?

The concept of what would happen if we just found something completely alien is what came to me first. It’s at the heart of science, as well as science fiction: how do we make sense of the world and new discoveries? That is such a human question, that it may very well define us. It certainly defines much of our culture throughout human history.

Another one tomorrow!
