Interview: N J Magas

A little while back I was interviewed by Asexual Artists, a blog dedicated to giving exposure to creatives who don’t have any sexual preference. The goal is to promote solidarity among asexuals who may be feeling out of place within a society that is hyper sensitive to all things sexual, as well as showcasing our art, our processes, and our experiences as asexuals. While I don’t often talk about my sexuality as it is such a small part of who I am, I’m in favor of building a voice for those who don’t have much of one, and lent Asexual Artists my experiences toward that end.

WORK

Please, tell us about your art.

I’m a writer of fantasy, science fiction and horror. My themes often center around death or impermanence, and what culturally makes us who we are. Characters are very important to me, so I try to focus more on the players within the story, rather than the world around them. I prefer to work with characters who are or act outside of expectation—characters who have deep, dark secrets, hidden personalities, contradictory hobbies or unusual lifestyles. The goal is to never leave a reader in a position where they can guess what’s going to happen next.

What inspires you?

Living in Kyoto is obviously a huge inspiration…
