Our co-editor Valeria Vitale has interviewed Nick Wood, author of the challenging alternative-history Apartheid novel Azanian Bridges, which was listed among the Guardian's best SF/F of 2016 and blurbed by none less than Ursula K. Le Guin herself! (Nick also has a story in TFF#33, The Paragon of Knowlege.)


Read this interview in which he talks about psychology, empathy, racism and decolonizing language, and also gives us a long list of recommendations of African SFF and comics. Fascinating stuff.

This week we have a guest post from Jo Thomas, author of the Elkie Bernstein trilogy of urban werewolf novels, co-editor of several anthologies over at Fox Spirit, and author of three fantasy and scifi stories in TFF. (*) (*) (*)



Jo talks about her experience as a writer on the Autism Spectrum, likening this to going through life without being having given the users’ manual—just as her heroine Elkie has to fight twenty-five werewolves while writing the book for herself…

Actually, two more mini-interviews unexpectedly came in after I wrote that last post, so here is the last link update before our next issue (due within days or hours). We ask our mini-interviewees two or three questions, and they reply in a couple sentences each, which we post on FB and link to their work in our latest issue (in this case #38). Our latest subjects…

This week at the TFF blog we had a visit from Katrina S. Forest, whose wonderful mid-apocalyptic short story “The Poisoned City” appeared in The Future Fire #31 back in 2014, and a revised version is now the title story in her self-published SF and Fantasy collection The Poisoned City and Other Stories. She answered a few questions about her writing, collaboration, and learning d/Deaf sign language.

Short stories
Novelettes
Poetry
If you like any of the work in issue #39, please feel free to leave a comment at the Press Blog saying so, or even leave a rating or review at Goodreads.

We did get one last micro-interview from one of the artists of issue #38: Miguel Santos, illustrator of “Siv Delfin” talks about his illustrating style for this dystopian noir piece, and his ideal wonder-drug.

Last week we posted an interview with Margrét Helgadóttir, editor of the Asian Monsters anthology from Fox Spirit Books (and co-editor of the two previous volumes European Monsters and African Monsters), in which she talks about the coverage and variety of each volume, the importance of illustration and other images, and the future installments of the World of Monsters series.

This week we've been posting mini-interviews on Fakebooc with all the authors and artists who contributed to TFF #42. These will keep coming every couple of days for a while yet, but the people we've interviewed so far include:


I'll try to remember to post updates here, but follow or keep an eye on the TFF page if you want to be sure not to miss anything.
