We had a particular style when we started. Some thought it was a bit dark but it came from us, our backgrounds and yes our feelings about the world we were writing about. I don’t think we were dystopian. We followed where the the objects and the stories took us. We liked to think we walked the speculative line between optimism and pessimism. But things have changed. My writing partner has started to move the stories in particular ways. It’s not a consistent change – suddenly sunnier or darker. It’s as though its programming is being changed on the fly.
