Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to all!
A bit of news:
We are so very pleased to share the news that we have teamed up with Cooking the Books, the awesome monthly podcast produced and hosted by Fran Wilde and Aliette de Bodard! The podcast features interviews with authors and editors and explores the meeting points between genre fiction and food. Starting this month, Cooking the Books will feature exclusive Book Smugglers content and interview questions tailored for each guest. If you have not listened to the podcast yet, go take a look at their fantastic backlist, featuring conversations with Nisi Shawl, Chuck Wendig, Emma Newman and other stars of the SFF world and make sure to drop by this Wednesday for a brand new episode.
This Week on The Book Smugglers:
We kick off the week with Ana’s essay on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. This is a complicated movie to digest and a lot to unpack.
Tuesday, Thea will have a review up for Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Wednesday, it’s Cooking the Books time – the interviewee this month is the author of the excellent Winter Tide, Ruthanna Emrys
On Thursday, we post our joint review of All Systems Red by Martha Wells
On Friday, Ana closes out the week over at Kirkus with something yet to be decided.
Until tomorrow, we remain…
