    It’s interesting and surprising to hear John say that he thinks his characters could be gender swapped without much difference. One of the things I enjoy most about his work is that the female characters feel very developed and realized (the personalities of the Bad Machinery girls in particular), which is uncommon when written by men. I could just be generalizing though.

    I was one of those big Esther fans from the Scary Go Round days, and was delighted to see her return for a couple of short stories in Giant Days.

    I’m looking forward to what’s coming up next!

      We were surprised by that comment too. The girls are so brilliantly realised that you can’t imagine them in the opposite genders. It would lose a lot of the charm and subtlety – plus the awesome Ed Gemmell wouldn’t be quite so tragic if he was a girl!
