This week we are joined by multiple award winning writer and editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch who discusses her long and diverse career in science fiction, as a writer, as editor at Pulphouse then at F&SF, and her more recent experiences as a writer working in both mainstream and independent publishing. We also discuss her ‘Retrieval Artist’ saga, including the eight novel ‘Anniversary Day’ series.
We spend most time, though, discussing Kris’s work editing a new anthology of science fiction by women, Women of Futures Past
, which will be published by Baen Books in 2016, and her new Women in Science Fiction
As always, we’d like to thank Kris for making the time to talk to us, and hope you enjoy the episode!
Every three months Locus publishes a long list of forthcoming science fiction, fantasy, and horror books that are being published in the US and the UK. As we have been doing all year, whenever one of these ‘Forthcoming Books’ issues hits the newsstands and your email inboxes, we invite Locus Editor-in-Chief Liza Trombi to join us to discuss some of the books we’re excited about reading.
This episode is a little different, though. After more than forty years, Locus
is moving premises, leaving the home of founder Charles N. Brown in the Oakland hills and moving to bright new digs in San Leandro. Before getting into our discussion of new books, we chat about the herculean task of packing and moving one of the best collections of science fiction books and art in the world, the incredible kindness of Alan Beatts and the Borderlands Books
team, and hopes for the future.
As always, our sincere thanks to Liza for taking the time to chat to us. We hope you enjoy the episode and will be back next week with more!
