This month we get around to talking about N.K. Jemisin’s really fantastic “The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms” It’s 40 minutes of us being super excited. After that we talk about how the next year is going to play out and give out the list of titles we’ll be reading next year.
This month’s episode is a magical joyride through Nnedi Okorafor’s young adult book Akata Witch. We mostly talk about how much we love the little intricate details in this book and how they make this such a fun and enjoyable read. Come along with us.
Come have fun with us as we explore Karen Lord’s awesome debut novel Redemption in Indigo. We rave about Paama (the main character), her family, her support structure, and how her story unfolds. We love the way the world is set up and are specifically smitten with the structure. So come along for a listen.
City of Golden Shadow is the first part of an epic science fiction series by Tad Williams. This episode we examine his view of the internet of the future as written in 1996 as well as the book’s treatment of characters and settings not typically scene in speculative fiction.
Join us this month for a trip through Ursula K Leguin’s Tombs of Atuan. During the recording our world is crashing down around us much like the protagonist of this book. Or we were in a thunderstorm. The audio is pretty clean though so hooray for us. It’s a brief episode because the book is a short one, but we still have a good chat. If it suits you give it a listen
This is an excellent book that hits on a number of good discussion topics. It’d be great if you guys could join in. You can leave comments here on the blog. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or track us down any way you see fit. Since we are going to WisCon this year we will most likely be releasing the podcast before the 22nd.
