Michal Ajvas Interview

A quick link to this interview with Michal Ajvas.  I’ve had my eye on Ajvas since Jeff Vandermeer listed The Other City as one his favourites from 2009.  Wierd fiction, world fiction, genre-bending and The Golden Age to follow.  It all sounds very interesting indeed.

N K Jemisin

Of the high-profile debut releases in 2010, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N K Jemisin seems to be gaining the most plaudits.

In this interview over at A Dribble of Ink, Jemisin talks about all three books in her Inheritance Trilogy. The shifting time and POV from book to book sounds particularly promising and I’ll be looking to get my hands on a copy of 100,000K in the not too distant.
