Kim Stanley Robinson Interview in Chico Newspaper

Thanks to Gigi Gridley and this entry on cherylmorgan's weblog., I've seen a long interview with Kim Stanley Robinson about his climate-change novels in the Chico News & Review, the weekly newspaper from the city where I attended college. (I graduated from California State University, Chico with a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science in 1988.)

The CN&R is a good paper, and people coming to the party recently could be forgiven for assuming that it is a spin-off of the Sacramento News & Review, but in fact the SN&R and the Reno News & Review are spin-offs of the Chico paper, which was, as I heard it, founded by CSU Chico students who were fed up with editorial interference in the school newspaper by school officials, so they moved off-campus and formed an independent newspaper. I'm glad to see they're still around and thriving. I don't get back to Chico as often as I would like, but a part of me still would like to live there.
