Rachel Kramer Bussel talks to the man:
Since you publish across genres and formats, from political activism to poetry, fiction, graphic novels, comics, spirituality, history, current events, and erotica, is there an overarching theme tying them all together, or do you evaluate each book on an individual basis? Is there anything you categorically do not want to see and would never publish?
The theme is that through all these books, I’m trying to understand the world. In a sense the process is deeply personal (I’m trying to understand) and wholly divorced from my personal tastes (to understand the world properly, you have to let it come at you full-bore, shock you.) So really no, there’s very little I could say I would not do — I just did a book called Power and the Idealists by a so-called liberal hawk, but I did a book by a guy who thinks the Zapatistas need to be far more aggressive militarily. So in this sense, very much everything has to be evaluated case-by-case, so as to allow for discovery.
