Having read your online bio, I have to ask: do you really have trained monkeys? How much do you wish you did? Would they communicate telepathically with you so all your work remains authentically yours?

Ah, the trained monkeys have prompted quite a bit of interest here and there. I actually got rid of them quite recently, as they had begun to get sloppy and, yes, were taking credit where it was not due. We didn’t communicate telepathically (that is impossible!) but, rather, I would dictate to them and they would type away and eventually we would come up with something decent. But the work was always entirely mine.
