For your Friday reading pleasure, may I recommend this great interview with author Nnedi Okorafor, conducted by Matt Cheney, as well as this equally cool interview with Publishers Weekly’s Rose Fox that I just posted this morning. Wonderful answers from both interview subjects. Okorafor’s novel will be on my best-of-the-year-so-far post for Amazon in early September.
In other news, Matt Cheney just finished off the Third Bear Carnival with an unexpected surprise: my wife Ann wrote a short essay about my fiction. It was really sweet of her and made my Friday. (Matt just posted a podcast of my short-short “The Magician” the day before.)
