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 these difficult times.
This time out, Jonathan calls up long-time friend of Coode Street, Ian McDonald, to talk about how current events are impacting reading and working, piracy at sea, research, romance, and his long-awaited next novel, Hopeland. There might even have been a moment of congratulations for Ian’s recent Hugo nomination for the Luna series!
