Pasje


13. Is there anything about 40k universe which you find as impossible or very close to give it reasonable or logic shape in your books? For example would you be able to describe the way of Necron’s thinking or Sister of Battle falling into the Chaos?

A: Yes. I didn’t write Space Marines for a long time for just that kind of reason. I didn’t think I would be able to get inside them in the way that I had got inside the real humans of the Imperial Guard. It’s interesting that you mention necrons. They are the o­ne aspect of 40K that I’ve ever got wrong. I built the entire plot of a novel around necrons, o­nly to discover that they didn’t and couldn’t do the fundamental thing that I needed them to do and thus I had to reconstruct my novel from scratch.

14. What are the archetypes of your main characters? Who is Eisenhorn and Gaunt? And what about Ravenor, who’s in my opinion more complicated?

A: I have to say that I don’t think of them in terms of archetypes. I think about them in terms of people. They sort of form in my head as personalities and I see where their tics and quirks take me. Sometimes they can surprise me. Most of my characters are visually based o­n a movie or tv actor. I like to “cast” my characters so that I can get a good, user-friendly handle o­n them. But in terms of personality and character, most of them are based o­n o­ne or more real persons. They are people that I know, or that I have met, or they’re blends of people that I know.

15. Sometimes I have a feeling that thought the characters of your books Dan Abnett is speaking. When you talk about the cost of reaching the designated aim, about revenge or faith and religion. Do you really wanted to make such points or is it just me to find too much? If yes, don’t you afraid the people may find it too moral?

A: The 40K universe is a surprisingly moral place, so it comes as no surprise that characters would think in very robust, moralistic terms. I don’t deliberately get them to articulate my own points of view, but that sort of thing must inevitably come out. If you think I do it too much, I’ll to stop.

16. Aren’t you tempted to make something crazy like killing the Emperor or resurrecting him? Or describing Khorne as quite cool god who hates the red color?

A: That sort of thing crosses my mind all the time, but Games Workshop tend to send the continuity police round.

17. I have to ask that question, yet I realize there might be no answer. What about Eisenhorn and Benquin? All the Gaunt’s Ghosts? And Wystan Frauka (my favorite)? Are you going to make them characters of your future books or you are just tired of them?

A: I’m writing the next Gaunt novel now. It follows o­n from “Only in Death” and it’s called “Blood Pact”, and it will be the first of a four book series. Eisenhorn and Bequin will return in the third and final Inquisitor trilogy that I hope to start work o­n later next year.



Więcej Duchów Gaunta! O tak!


18. Is there any book you wrote, which you find as poor? Do you read your books after you finished them? Did you want to change anything in your books which were already o­n the book shelves?

A: I’m pretty pleased with all my books, but I’d like to think they get better as I go along. I often read my books again, but that’s to check for details and continuity. I also often want to change things when I realise I’ve made tiny mistakes in continuity and detail.

19. What would you said to that many willing to write books? Do you have any kind of advice for all the beginners? Or you think that they should base o­n their own experience and discover everything by themselves?

A: I think if you want to be a writer you should write, and work at developing that craft in the same way that an athlete would train to build up his or her muscles and stamina. A writer should also read as much as possible to keep his imagination fed. Do not be dissuaded or put off too easily by rejection. A writer also needs a pretty thick skin.

20. Does the fact that there are some many people worshipping you make writing another books easier or o­n the contrary, the responsibility is a heavy burden to you?

A: I get quite excited about the idea that there are people out there eager to read my next book. I try to top the last o­ne and make it as good as I can. I try to write the sort of books that would entertain me, in the hope that if they entertain me, they’ll entertain other people too.

21. Have you ever tried Ilo-sticks? Or Flecs?

A: I have been known to smoke the occasional cigar, but writing is my drug of choice.

22. We all know that “There is o­nly WAR”, but is there also a place for Don Kichote in w40k universe? Or Monty Python Flying Circus? Or Kermit the Frog?

A: I think there should be a place for everybody. The universe of 40K should be the sort of place where Miss Piggy can be a Sister of Battle, and Sancho Panza can cut down the largest tree in the Nalwood Forest with a herring.



Moje osobiste wielkie podziękowania dla Dana Abnett'a, który zgodził się na udzielenie tego wywiadu, mimo tego, że jest bardzo zajętym człowiekiem. Szacunek.

Profesjonalny wywiad mimo kilku drobnych błędów gramatycznych i ortograficznych ale nie ma co się czepiać.

Na pewno Slaw musiał się ostro naprodukować aby doszło do tego wywiadu i to jest najważniejsze.

Wielkos gratos:).

Naprawdę szacunek za doprowadzenie do tego wywiadu. W jaki sposób on się odbywał - przez e-mail? Bo chyba ciężko byłoby zorganizować coś takiego na żywo? Jakie kontakty musieliście poruszyć żeby do tego doszło?

Pytania są naprawdę profesjonalne (mimo wspomnianych przez madprofesa drobnych błędów), chociaż mnie korciłoby pewnie żeby zadać pytania na bardziej kontrowersyjne tematy, np jak pan Abnett "kreatywnie" podchodzi do realiów świata i jak Black Library faktycznie zabrania autorom pisać np. o Xenos zwyciężających nad Space Marines (do czego przyznał się CS Goto w jednym z wywiadów).

Dzięki wielkie za świetny wywiad. Szkoda Sławku, że nie dałeś znać wcześniej bo miałbym jedno pytanie do Mr. Abnett'a dotyczące kontynuacji "Double Eagle" czyli "Interceptor City".

Odnośnie tłumaczenia: jeżeli nie macie nic przeciwko to czemu by nie? :D

Gratulacje Sławku - uparłeś się i dopiąłeś swego.

Idaan: parę dni temu przeczytałem opowiadanie p. Abnetta pt. "Fall of Malevolion". Właśnie zaczyna się inwazja tyranidów, ewakuacja wojska i ludności w pełni, chodzą ploty o spodziewanym wsparciu ze strony SM. Morale rośnie kapkę, ale robale są szybkie straszecznie. W końcu na odsiecz spadają z nieba marines z zakonu Lamenters i... zostają zmasakrowani w sposób tak błyskawiczny, że obserwującym to ludziom włos staje dęba, a ich wiara w niezwyciężone Anioły Śmierci rozwiewa się w proch i pył.
