Question for the hive mind

I’ve been asked if, tomorrow, I will do a phone interview with Lawrence Miles for a radio station based in London. I’m still not 100% sure it’s going ahead, but it seems very likely now.
I’m a little nervous about this, partly because Miles is one of my favourite authors, but also because I want to try to find the right balance in the questions. I presume that a reasonable proportion of the people listening won’t know who he is, and thus I can’t ask something like “so, the Parablox entry in The Book Of The War is the only entry that neither references nor is referenced by any other entries — how does that relate to the various other absent centres in the book, and how do they in turn relate to the thesis of the book, that there is a hollowness at the centre of twenty-first century culture?”
On the other hand, something like “So who’s your favourite Doctor, then?” would seem something of a waste.
I’m sure I’ll come up with something (I do have some ideas), but it would be useful to know what kind of questions people would be interested in being asked.

  1. I really need your help says:

    Can I contact you through email? It is very important, and I wish to ask you a question, Andrew. Thank you.

    Is there any way for people outside of the UK to hear the interview with Lawrence Miles? Because I’m in the US, and I’m extremely interested in this, even if it’s 15 minutes of a 45 minute recording.

      It’ll be on the Resonance FM website, I’m pretty sure. You might be interested in the whole programme, anyway, as it’s an hour-long documentary on Doctor Who novels.
