An interview with Radon Journal, November 2023
The interview covers my new book, How to Navigate Our Universe, and much else besides — from Pittsburgh, to Le Guin’s The Dispossessed, to Picard.
I am a fantasy and science fiction author of both stories and poetry. I’ve been named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association, and have twice won both the Elgin Award and the Rhysling Award. My work has appeared in Analog, Asimov’s, F&SF, Fantasy Magazine, Science, and Strange Horizons.
How to Be a Star
Gravitationally collapse a nebula.
Fuse hydrogen into helium.
If desired, explode.
How-to astronomy poetry to answer vexing questions such as How to Surprise Saturn, How to Blush Like Betelgeuse, and How to Survive a Black Hole.
Goran’s review on Goodreads of The Sign of the Dragon, December 2021.
“But if you are one of those Becky Chambers-loving, hopeful people who look for the positive in humanity, if you are someone who wants to read something truly experimental, a kind of multicultural hopepunk story with Guy Gavriel Kay-level emotions… You will love this book as I did. You will cherish the characters, the words and the lyricism.”
