Cover art for A Stranger in OlondriaThis week Jonathan and Gary are joined in the Gershwin Room by Sofia Samatar, author of the brilliant debut fantasy novel A Stranger in Olondria, which was published by Small Beer Press this April.


In a wide-ranging discussion, we look at the origins of  A Stranger in Olondria, re-encountering genre fiction, the power of language and how we encounter it, and much, much more.

As mentioned in the podcast, you can read more of Sofia's fiction here:
Another new story is coming up shortly at Lightspeed, and a sequel to A Stranger in Olondria is in the works.

As always, we would like to thank Sofia for taking the time to join us, and hope you enjoy the podcast.
