Ten minutes with… is a special series presented by Coode Street that sees readers and booklovers from around the world talk about what they’re reading right now and what’s getting them through this strange time.
This time out, Gary spends ten minutes with Liz Williams. Her new novel, Comet Weather, is one of his favorite novels of this spring. They touch upon the traditions of British magical fiction dating back to Arthur Machen and discuss the work of Robert Holdstock and Graham Joyce, while Liz makes the very good point that no one should be corona-shamed into spending their time reading Proust unless they really want to read Proust.
Books mentioned include:
- Comet Weather by Liz Williams
- Ghostland: In Search of a Haunted Country by Edward Parnell
- Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock
- Miracles of Our Own Making: A History of Paganism by Liz Williams
