I don't think Greg's part of the grunge generation.
Indeed. I left Seattle in 1987, so I was gone before grunge, Starbucks, and Microsoft . . .

To answer the question, though, it was a career move. David Hartwell (who was the original Trek editor at Pocket Books, btw) convinced me that if I was really serious about this whole science-fiction writing and editing thing I needed to move to NYC where the action was. (I believe the phrase "wasting your life busing tables in Seattle" may have been involved.) It actually took me two or three years to work up the nerve to make the Big Move, but I've never regretted it . . . although I do miss the Northwest sometimes.
