Suvudu posted an interview with author Drew Karpyshyn covering his new book Children of Fire which will be out tomorrow.

The world of Children of Fire seems to be morally ambiguous. As a culture, we seem to have drifted away from simpler ideas of “good guys vs. bad guys”. Why is that? Why did you choose to pursue this direction?

Drew Karpyhsyn: I think there’s more value and interest in characters that don’t fit the classic hero/villain archetypes. A flawless, pure, noble hero can be kind of boring, and it’s impossible for most of us average folks to relate to. Similarly, a purely evil villain comes across as cartoonish. I want to be able to understand and accept the motivations of the bad guy; even if I don’t agree with them, I want to see how his or her actions could seem reasonable from that point of view.
