Andrez Bergen interview @ Atomic Anxiety

AtomBomb Welcome back, everyone, for the 14th installment of my Atomic Interview series. If you’re a regular reader of the Anxiety, you know I’m taking a break from writing reviews for the time being but I’m trying to make up for it with more interviews and some original fiction. I can’t promise any of this will be the best thing you’ve ever read, but I can promise it’s better than listening to the guy in the next cubicle explain how he spent $15 emptying the snack machine of Combos just to make Roy from the IT Department angry.

This time around I’m happy to welcome Andrez Bergen to the Anxiety. Andrez is the author of THE CONDIMENTAL OP (available here), 100 YEARS OF VICISSITUDE, TOBACCO-STAINED MOUNTAIN GOAT, and this fall will see the release of WHO IS KILLING THE GREAT CAPES OF HEROPA?. You can check out all of Andrez’s available works at his Amazon author’s page.

Interview with Andrez @ The Six-Degree Conspiracy

“In the first-person narrative of his first novel, his character struggles to fit the black fedora of Harry Lime, of Graham Greene’s The Third Man. And while the narrator nervously tries to describe himself through the movie’s black-and-white images, he jells into shape through his street-smart voice, describing the skank-life in Melbourne’s far off rotting future.”

Interview with Andrez @ Today’s Paige

I first wrote Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat as a 4-page short story when I was in my early 20s, and writing was my single passion. Then I kind of got diverted and spread-out with the asides you just mentioned. In 1992 and again in 2001 I fleshed out the story to manuscript form, and then shelved it on both occasions to collect dust. Somehow I dragged it back out in 2007, wiped it down, and began writing Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat, the novel, with great help from my editor Kristopher Young at Another Sky Press — who decided to publish it.”

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat review @ All Due Respect / Pulp Ink

Last year, Andrez Bergen leaped onto the scene with Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat, with a cover and title that thoroughly convinced me of the book’s appeal before I’d ever read a page.

This summer, his second book, One Hundred Years of Vicissitude, will be released, and I was lucky enough to get an early look.

Interview with Andrez @ The Atheist’s Quill

INTERVIEW: JUNE 2012

Atheist’s Point of View (APOV): When did your love of all-things noir start?

Bergen: I grew up on the cinematic version of the genre. My parents and their friends were always watching it, and I think I saw The Third Man for the first time when I was in primary school. Reading-wise, I really started to enjoy books by Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett in my 20s, which was the time I explored a more international take on noir by filmmakers like Akira Kurosawa. I’ve always had this affinity. I think I’ve seen the Humphrey Bogart version of The Maltese Falcon at least a hundred times. Really.

Andrez Bergen interview by Julie Morrigan

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat is sci-fi-lite, at least according to one of my mates — which surprised me since I believed it safely slotted into the sci-fi genre and I didn’t know there was a style called sci-fi-lite. Probably he was making it up.

“Most people are now telling that TSMG is far more oriented toward noir than science fiction, which I guess is Read more…

Interview with Andrez Bergen @ Tribute Books

“It could be one hundred percent bona fide reality, or one hundred percent surreal sham. But it is a contemporary homage to old skool detective noir, thrown into a blender with low-brow sci-fi of the near future and current social trends that are pervading the Western world – with the last city in the world being Melbourne, Australia.
