"MR. SNYDER, were you serious when you said youíd never turn any of your stories into a movie?"

"What I said was that I couldnít imagine my stories being adapted for film in a way that I would like, and so no; Iím not interested in putting myself through that, my fans through that. I write for readers."

"But you could make so much more money."

"OK. Well, there are a lot of ways to make a lot of money. I donít know you, and I donít mean to offend you, but what if I suggested a way for you to make a lot of money that you believed wouldn't align with your values? Would you do it?"

"I donít understand."

"OK. Thatís fine. I do appreciate the question. Can I sign that for you?"

"Yes, please."

"...Here you go."

"Thank you. So, think about it, OK?"
