I’ve been working on a new Eddie Collins story called The Lift. I was, if I’m being honest, going to keep it quiet until I’d finished the story, that way there’d be no pressure on me to finish it or even make it good.
What’s it about, Andy?
It’s about Eddie misbehaving.
Sorry, need more details.
Okay, who’s in it apart from Eddie?
Two guys. Both of them not very nice.
How long is it?
Don’t know, haven’t finished it yet.
When’s it due out?
I know how bloody crafty you are, which December?
Ha, you suspicious minded person! This December, 2014.
Thank you. How did it come about?
I wanted to interview Eddie in preparation for the Sword of Damocles release, but after I while I thought better of it because he’d never give me a straight answer…
I know what that’s like!
…so I thought I’d get someone else to interview him, using coercion if necessary.
Okay, go do some writing.
Oh, just a minute, why’s it called The Lift?
