Why he thinks the short story genre is interesting:
After taking a university class on short stories I decided to write one and found I enjoyed it immensely. Sometimes an idea can only be stretched so far, so the short format allows you the freedom to just focus on that one idea. Also, I can play with different genres without feeling any pressure to make it work in the long format.
