If a writer's known for doing A Certain Thing, especially at an early stage, it's really difficult to subsequently demonstrate range. There are plenty of creators out there who really lean into that bend, by the way. People who become so intrinsically associated with a single tone or a recurring motif that they wind up putting themselves at the heart of the reading experience. It's branding, inadvertent or otherwise. These are people (usually writers) who stand in front of their stories rather than behind them. I think that's a perfectly reasonable course to take, especially in a world so sodden with opportunities for creator/audience engagement, but for my tastes it feels a little like a gilded cage. After having a great many long, hard discussions with myself I've realised the only thing I feel so strongly about that I can imagine it saturating every single piece of work I ever do – the only thing I'd ever risk becoming my brand, in other words – is my conviction that story is an existential technology. -- Si Spurrier
