An interview with Ray Hecht

It’s that man again…

Ray “Spratly” Hecht still lies within the 9-Dash Line

Here’s Ray Hecht. You may remember him from his books South China Morning Blues (that I reviewed here), Pearl River DramaThis Modern Love and The Erotic Adventures of Hercules (as yet unpublished. And unwritten).

Ray was recently kind enough to feature an interview with me on his site where I discuss my thoughts on writerly things.

Direct your mouse pointer hither.

Some highlights:

“…like a nerd at a prom night getting drenched in a vat of pig’s blood…”

“…a tenacious black woman who fought against 1960s racism to become the first botanist in space…”

“…I’d probably grab a samurai sword and go berzerk outside a Beijing branch of Uniqlo…”

“…8 Reasons why Asian Girls are Better…

If you don’t think pig’s blood, botanists in space, samurai swords or Asian girls are interesting, then I don’t know what is wrong with you.

Thanks Ray for the interview.

One thought on “An interview with Ray Hecht

  1. As an admitted “Hit-to-kill” denialist, it’s quite curious that Ray didn’t bring this issue up with you considering the entire climax of Party Members is based on what Ray frequently has referred to as an “urban legend.”
