Malazan at 10: An old interview with Steven Erikson
And when I say old, I mean old. This interview was done by The Guardian in October 1999, a few months after Gardens of the Moon was published. It's very interesting, expanding on how the Malazan series was picked up for publication, the tug of war between Orion and Bantam over the series, what Erikson was doing at the time and how the deal (which I believe remains a record-setter for a debut fantasy series, shattering that set by Goodkind a few years earlier, although I could well believe someone like Rothfuss has broken it) changed the author's life.
