Does this 'traditionalism' tie in with your mistrust of the internet? I find it slightly odd that someone who is renowned for working in speculative fiction and near-future writing isn't interested in a tool with such potential.
AM: I'm practically Amish when it comes down to it. I practically mistrust any technology that came after the buggy. What I tend to think is that the internet is fine for everyone else in the world. I can see that it may have some disadvantages. In fact, I can see a few problems arising from it, but, by and large... everybody in the entire world apart from me uses the internet and seems to get on quite well with it. For my part, I don't want to be connected to that all-pervasive kind of cyber culture any more than I want to be connected to the physical world that is around me, more than I can help it [laughs]. I'm largely a solitary creature, just by nature and by my work. That said, I venture out into town, but I very seldom leave Northampton.
