35.0 – Author Spotlight: Ann Leckie

August 18, 2016 0

un_leckieThis week we’re at Worldcon! But before we left we had a chat with Ann Leckie, author of the Hugo and Nebula winning Imperial Radch series. We discuss the books in the series as well as Ann’s short fiction and her stint as editor of Giganotasaurus. We may have pressured her for details on her upcoming books as well as a few other, uh, ancillary topics.

We’re at Worldcon!

Chris, Cath and George will be at MidAmeriCon II this week! Will you? Find us on Twitter if you’re around and want to say hi. We’re looking forward to connecting with friends and former guests! (And hey, if you want a bit part in our upcoming radio drama, that may be arranged. Mwahaha…)

In other news, we’ve added a couple of short blooper files to our Extras page. Hard to believe, but we do occasionally biff the show in comical fashion.

What else are we up to? Glad you asked. Dr. Cath will share her expertise on two panels at Worldcon this week. Chris just wrapped up DraculaFest with a summary mega-post. Chia’s spending the summer in Florida and has the pics to prove it (with a brief stint back in Boston to cover Forbidden Research). And George is held hostage by a feline overlord. Don’t send help.

Thanks for listening! New show coming soon.
