The Short Story Interview
Short story author and critic Tamsin Hopkins kindly asked Tyler to do an interview about setting and place in the short form, with a particular emphasis on his collection, Burrard Inlet. Her piece was recently published on The Short Story website. It is part article, part interview, and includes her own insightful musings on the importance of place, and how to evoke it, followed by the Q&A with Tyler (who manages to sound semi-lucid, for a change). It is available to read in its entirety here, and the other articles and resources on the site are well worth exploring, too. Tamsin's own collection, Shore to Shore, has recently been released by Cinnamon Press.
