Fiction and life

In the Publishers Weekly interview (see last posting), I mentioned that some incidents and themes that I thought I'd fictionalised or exaggerated in The Shadow Walker had subsequently been reflected in real iife events in Mongolia.  Having just finished editing The Outcast, which deals in part with political activism and potential civil unrest, I was disturbed to see that, following its recent general election, Mongolia has responded to violence on the streets by declaring its first ever state of emergency.  The problems have been described as the 'teething troubles of a young democracy'.  Let's hope so.
