Question: What’s the worst career advice you ever received?

Michael Kupperman: The worst career advice I ever got was to drop the pseudonym I was using, P. Revess, and just use my real name. I severely regret taking that advice, I wish I kept that pseudonym, but I think it's too late now.


Question: Would you ever use a pen name again?

Michael Kupperman: Oh, of course, yeah, if the opportunity arose or if it seemed like a good idea, yes.
