The Scariest Part - F. Brett Cox talks about The End of All Our Exploring

Interview with Nicholas Kaufmann, August 21, 2018

This week on The Scariest Part, I’m honored to host my good friend of many years and one hell of a writer, F. Brett Cox. And now, let’s hear what the scariest part was for (him):

"One of the writer’s tasks that sometimes gets less noticed than others is the need to reread one’s own work before it’s published. Technically, it’s proofreading, I guess, but in preparing my collection The End of All Our Exploring: Stories for publication, I found myself rereading the stories carefully, more than once, in some cases for the first time in many years. Happily, the task turned out to be daunting, but not painful. I did not cringe at beginner’s mistakes or find myself regretting my editor’s decision to publish what is, for all intents and purposes, my collected stories to date."
