I really should start watching the wire sometime soon. Whatever he writes here sounds fascinating, and given that I’m going through some weird crisis of Funtasy versus Internal Thematic Consistency debate in my own head. Right now, Simon’s take on writing worlds to reflect real issues seems the most relevant towards creating epic fiction, at least in the ways that James Cameron believes he’s doing.
