A few weeks back, I did an interview with Alex Telander of BookBanter, and it’s now available on the site as a podcast — BookBanter’s 30th episode, in fact. Alex also wrote a short review of Alcestis, which you can read here. The interview was great fun, and I hope you’ll enjoy listening to it, too. You can also follow BookBanter on Twitter.
I’m still dissertating away over here, with occasional breaks to think about Killingly, my next project — and Twitter’s been surprisingly helpful for that. I follow a bunch of historical fiction enthusiasts, which means that my Twitter stream often features links like this NYPL image of a giant wooden elephant at Coney Island from 1885. I’m not sure how that particular bit of history will fit into my 1890s Massachusetts setting, but you better believe I’ll try hard to make sure it does. I much prefer e-ink to backlit screens for reading, but this is the kind of thing that makes me understand why people might get excited about books augmented with video and internet content.
