John O'Neill

“For John O’Neill, reading, writing, and publishing speculative fiction isn’t some hobby or leisure activity. It’s his greatest passion, and his quarterly magazine, Black Gate, reflects that. By publishing top-notch Adventure Fantasy written in high-quality prose, O’Neill sets out to win over new audiences while still satisfying steadfast lovers of the genre… O’Neill’s passion is unmistakable both within the pages of Black Gate and whenever he discusses writing.

Columbia College and Elephant Rock Productions have posted a lengthy video interview of Black Gate founder and editor John O’Neill.

In a wide-ranging discussion that covers the creation of the magazine, cross-genre and adult themes, mistakes writers make, and the kind of fiction he wishes he saw more of, John speaks at length on online publishing and the changing fantasy market.
