Aliette de Bodard (aliettedebodard.com) is an amazing author and just delightful during this whole interview. She talks to the boys about her books (the Obsidian and Blood trilogy), inspiration, Short stories and blurring the line between fantasy and sci-fi (follow her on Twitter: @aliettedb). Speaking of technical difficulties: this episode really should have been heavily edited, but Ben doesn't believe in editing so...(Listen closely at the 39:26 mark to hear Ben's son roar loud enough to be picked up by the mic.) Enjoy, and write!
Thanks London! We had a ton of fun talking with her; glad you enjoyed it. I'd recommend picking up her omnibus (Obsidian and Blood). It includes her trilogy and a few short stories set in the same universe. Aliette also has quite a few short stories presented on podcasts (Starship Sofa, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Clarkesworld...). Enjoy!
