An Interview with Shakespeare

Hooray! Today marks the UK/R.o.W release of Craig Cormick‘s The Floating City, the second novel in The Shadow Master Series.

Described as Romeo & Juliet by way of Scott Lynch, you will definitely spy influences of the famous Bard running throughout the novel. As a famous plagiariser of the works of others, we thought we’d interview our old chum Will, to see how he feels about Craig taking inspiration from his work.

So, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, William Shakespeare!

ANGRY ROBOT: Will – can I call you Will? – I wanted to begin by asking you ab
