Today Gary Wolfe spends ten minutes with Nisi Shawl, who is currently preparing her introduction to the Library of America edition of Octavia Butler’s work. They briefly touch upon Cory Doctorow as well as Nisiâ€™s recent mini-collection from PM Press, Talk Like a Man,Â and the forthcoming sequel to her Nebula-nominated novelÂ Everfair.
In the second of our all-new “Ten Minutes with…” series, Jonathan spends ten minutes (well, nearly twenty) with critic and reviewer Ian Mond talking about the book he’s reading right now and the books he recommends for those with a little time on their hands (some of which he’s reviewing for Locus).
Books mentioned in this episode include:
- The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
- Bubblegum by Adam Levin
- We All Hear Stories in the Dark by Robert Shearman
- Providence by Max Barry
- Ghost Species by James Bradley
- Pew by Catherine Lacey
- Temporary by Hilary LeichterÂ
And now for something a little different. With all of us staying indoors, the team at Coode Street thought it might be fun to get in touch with some of our favourite people – writers, artists, and just folk we like to hang out with – and ask them what they’re reading at the moment, what they recommend to read if you’re currently hanging around indoors a lot, and maybe to let us know what they’ve been doing to.
For the very first of this “Ten Minutes with…” series, Gary calls up Sarah PinskerÂ to chat with her about her insanely prescient novel, A Song for a New Day, and what she’s been reading.
