Sensational 7 Q & A with K. Ryer Breese (Author of Future Imperfect)!

Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to hang out with your favorite author(s)? In an attempt to get a better understanding of authors, my Sensational Seven Q & A takes a closer or more personal look at these authors to give you a glimpse of the personalities behind the writing of your favorite books.

“Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book; a personality which, by birth and quality, is pledged to the doctrines there set forth, and which exists to see and state things so, and not otherwise.” By Ralph Waldo Emerson





K. Ryer Breese lives in Denver and is a critic for American Movie Classics at Filmcritic.com.

FUTURE IMPERFECT hits shelves today!

If you were given a chance to travel back in time, what year or place would you go / Why?
Honestly, I'd probably go back about 10,000 years. Paleolithic, baby. How cool would that be? The world would be huge and undiscovered and wild. It'd be like stepping onto an alien planet. No doubt I'd either get some horrible, long extinct stomach bug or wind up stomped on by a mastodon, but for the few moments I was around it would be incredible.

Describe your novel in seven words or less?
Guy sees the future and it sucks.

Please share with us about your favorite book and fictional crush to date?
I've got too many. Honestly, it's hard. But this morning it was Brian Francis Slattery's "Spaceman Blues." Incredible book that's listed as sci fi but confounds all genres. It's post-apocalyptic, post-literary, brilliant. Fictional crush? Been a long, long time. I guess pocahontas from Matthew Sharpe's "Jamestown." What a killer voice she had!

If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be / Why?
I'm a total sucker for the fantasy novels of my youth and there is no greater badass than the albino prince Elric and his supernatural sword Stormbringer. While the guy was actually a total weakling -- kinda like me -- he more than made up for it with all manner of crazy spells, deals with demons and elder gods, and hot ladies. Need I say more?

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play thelead role as you/ Why?
Wouldn't be a very exciting movie, honestly. A lot of ups and downs but I've remained pretty stable. No trips to rehab. No (faked) arrests. No sordid adventures. I guess I'd want it to be a younger Gary Oldman. Just because he rocks. 

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
Science is Fiction would be cool. I love science. Love fiction. I think that in many ways, they're interchangeable. And the title's already been used on a wonderful book about the French filmmaker Jean Painleve. His work is stupendously amazing -- like the Brothers Quay of documentary filmmakers -- and I want to plug it. 

How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
Reading watching listening exploring learning and regurgitating

Bonus:

**Is there any additional info you would like to share with your readers?
Only that the "Future Imperfect" sequel, "Past Continuous," will be out in November!
