Galactic Chat 21: Cat Sparks

In this episode we steal Alex from Galactic Suburbia and get her to interview the wonderful Cat Sparks, award winning writer and fiction editor at Australia's premier science magazine - Cosmos.  They discuss Cat's early career as a photographer of rock star hopefuls and politicians, before moving on to talking about her recent collection put out by Ticonderoga. They also cover her involvement in Australian speculative fiction as a small press publisher, writer and editor.  Of particular interest will be her bar panel discussion on the structure of novels using table condiments and cutlery.

[Note:  We apoligise for the feedback echo experienced in the first couple of questions Alex asks]
