SF Chronicle on Bill Amend’s 20 year collection

The San Francisco Chronicle interviewed Bill Amend about his career and his recently released 20 year collection
, The Best of FoxTrot.

Q: You include a lot of math puzzles and science references in your strips. Have you ever made a mistake?

A: Oh, yes. And how the e-mails flow on those days. I probably make no more math mistakes than I do spelling ones, but my syndicate editors can catch the spelling errors before the strips go out. The math they leave mostly up to me. My favorite e-mails are the ones pointing out some math mistake where there wasn’t one, so I get to turn the tables and explain how they were wrong.
