AISFP 310 — Gaie Sebold and David Gullen

Gregory Pellechi interviews British authors Gaie Sebold and David Gullen at Archipelacon in Mariehamn, Finland. They chat about a number of topics including writing strong female characters, working as writing partners, and the importance of travel.

This episode is brought to you by Cracking the Sky from Brenda Cooper, and published by Fairwood Press.

Launching at Sasquan, award-winning author Brenda Cooper’s first science-fiction only collection treats readers to human stories about the future. Meet a physicist who searches across timelines in a desperate attempt to travel across them herself, a young woman who tries to recover the magic of a trip on a river with her grandfather, a young couple who suspect their neighbor child is being raised by robots, and many more ….

Publishers Weekly says about Cracking the Sky:

This capable collection of hard SF stories … focuses squarely on worldbuilding, from the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. to the far reaches of space. Cooper works hard to center each piece on a way that technology has influenced human lives …. Those who love technology-driven stories will find a lot to like.

And James Van Pelt, author of STRANGERS AND BEGGARS, calls the collection “a masterful blend of hard-edged speculation tied to insightful evocations of the human spirit.”
