Default RJ's Trip to Russia (Translated)

Per Terez's twitter request I got two of my friends (one a raving fan of the WoT the other that has yet to finish the series) to do translations for these two interview transcripts.

The interviews with RJ are in Russian but mostly readable through Google Translate.

1. http://www.fantlab.ru/article40 - RJ on his early life, fantasy ("If you want to write fantasy - go see a psychiatrist!"), and writing in general. He mentions wanting to write a book about the Vietnam War and publishing it under his real name.

2. http://www.fantlab.ru/article46 - RJ talks about warfare and world history.

Hopefully these translations go above and beyond the Google translator's capabilities. Here they are.
