Cooking the Books with Alex London

Happy Wednesday and welcome to a regular monthly feature in partnership with Fran Wilde and Aliette de Bodard’s Cooking the Books Podcast!


Today’s guest is Alex London, talking to Fran and Aliette about his novel Black Wings Beating

Here at the extension kitchen, we have bonus Q&A content and an audio snippet:

The Book Smugglers: What’s your favorite food scene from (an SFF) movie, tv show, or book? (e.g. Imaginary Food becomes Real Food morphs into Food Fight in ’90s classic, HOOK).

Alex London: The Dinner Scene in Alien. While I have no idea what they were eating, it was one of the more dramatic endings to a meal in film history. And at least the Xenomorph ate well.

Alex London:
Marry: Pizza
Kiss: Chocolate Chip Cookies
Kill: Lima Beans


And here is the audio snippet and Alex’s answer to our Pokemon question:
