AISFP 122 – Michele Lang

Clarkesworld is a monthly science fiction and fantasy magazine first published in October 2006. Each issue contains at least two pieces of original fiction from new and established authors. Their fiction is also collected by issue in signed chapbooks, ebook editions and in their annual print anthology, Realms. Also listen to their original, monthly fiction podcast, and become a Clarkesworld Citizen so this online magazine can continue to bring us the very best in science fiction and fantasy.

Michele Lang, author of LADY LAZARUS, joins us to discuss the melding of history (in this case with personal considerations) with fantasy, having an agent who is also an author and what’s next with DARK VICTORY, and her second Magda Lazarus novel, which will be available January 2012.

You also can download a copy of Michele’s non-fiction guide to the history and metaphysics of LADY LAZARUS, titled “The World of Lady Lazarus.” It’s free at smashwords and $.99 at Listen to the show for details on how you can enter to win an autographed copy of Michele’s Lady Lazarus.

We need your support

We have not asked for any kind of donation in more than two years, if memory serves. We are at a place now, though, where we need to ask for some support as we strive to bring the podcast around the country to conventions later this year. We also need to replace some equipment soon. As a thank you to those who can support us, we offer the following incentives during our Fund-Drive:

  • Donate $20 and receive one book.
  • Donate $40 and receive two books.
  • Donate $60 or more and receive three books.
  • We regret that we can only ship titles within North America.

These books are first edition trade paperbacks and ARC (advanced reader copy) from major publishers. If you cannot support us financially at this time, please consider blogging about the podcast, interviewing us on your blog, joining us on Twitter and Facebook, and writing a review in iTunes. Thank you so much for your support these last five years.

    Hello. Love the show. Listening in from Ireland. There’s one thing though… I guess it’s Brent Bowen doing the interview, and it’s a good interview except for one thing: Brent, you ask very good questions, but please stop finishing your interviewee’s sentences. Let them finish by themselves. It’s okay.
    Keep up the good work. Cheers!
