Galactic Chat 25 - Dr Gillian Polack

This week Sean recovers from the depths of his crashed hard drive, this wonderful interview with Dr Gillian Polack, novelist, lecturer, editor, medievalist, food & culture historian and failed Morris dancer. Due to the fact that  Dr Polack lives in our national capital and nobody really wants to talk to Australian politicians, we were at the mercy of our nation's ancient telecom infrastructure.

In this wide ranging conversational interview they discuss Dr Polack's, two novels, her short story career, editing the acclaimed anthology Baggage and surviving as a writer in the current marketplace.  There's also mention of her yet to be released joint project - a sourcebook for writers on the Middle Ages.

WARNING:  Sean and Dr Polack discuss Morris Dancing, if you find Morris Dancing or Dancers objectionable you may be offended :).

Books mentioned in this cast:

Baggage - A linkt to Eneit press

Illuminations: A novel (Booktopia for Australian listeners) (Amazon - for Internationals)

Ms Cellophane - (Kobo / Amazon)
