Nerds of a Feather interview
The lovely Andrea Johnson of Nerds of a Feather interviewed me about Flyaway, about which she also said, “There is so much art-thought behind Flyaway, that at times I have to talk about the novella as a piece of fiction, and at other times I have to talk about it as a piece of art that is separate from a plotline.” Which, as an artist, was lovely to hear. But she also said nice things about it as a book, too!
Coode Street Podcast
Jonathan Strahan chatted with me for the Coode Street Podcast’s Ten Minutes With series:
In it, with occasional external disruptions, we “discuss reading and working in the time of the pandemic, the comfort of regency romances, illustrating The Tallow Wife, watching Hamish Macbeth, her new short novel Flyaway, and much more.”
You can listen through that link, or on your preferred podcast app. We talked about books and projects old and new — and then kept on talking for quite a while afterwards. It’s been too long between running into each other in conventions.
There are lots (lots) of great interviews on Coode Street. I recommend checking them out.
Quick Sips Reviews
Charles Payseur of Quick Sips Reviews took a look at the latest two issues of Strange Horizons, including my story “The Present Only Toucheth Thee“.
As a reader, I’ve been developing a liking, lately, for reviews that are thoughtful appreciations —they are themselves often lovely pieces of writing, they deepen my liking for stories I’ve read, and frequently drive me to read others I might not have (and give me ideas). And as a writer it is of course gratifying to read a considered response to even such a short story.
