Welcome back to the relaunched Galactic Chat. In this episode Sean chats with Australian Award winning Fantasy and science fiction author Margo Lanagan. They talk about her nomination for the inaugural Stella Award and what that nomination meant for her and perhaps the speculative fiction genre in Australia.
They also delve into Margo's fascination with folktale and its consistent popularity for authors and readers alike. Sean admits that Margo has the ability to break him and make him cry with the emotional gravity of her work and finally they talk gritty fantasy and why women don't share that podium with George RR Martin or Joe Abercrombie.
