LynneQuisition: Stephen Hise and K.S. Brooks

Interviews by Lynne CantwellWe have two very special guests with us for this IU Blogoversary edition of the LynneQuisition. Direct from the Nerve Center of the Nuclear-Powered DeathStar, and taking a seat in the comfy chairs (we had to bring in a spare from the engine room – it smelled a little funky, but a case of Eysol cleaned it right up!) are our very own Evil Mastermind, Stephen Hise, and his loyal second-in-command, K.S.
