AISFP 232 – Kay Kenyon, A THOUSAND PERFECT THINGS

Timothy C. Ward and John Dodds interview Science Fiction and Fantasy novelist, Kay Kenyon. Her newest novel, A THOUSAND PERFECT THINGS, is currently on sale in print and ebook. The ebook has a deal going for $2.99 on Kindle, Nook, and Apple’s iBooks, expiring Tuesday.

Discussed:

  • What inspired Kay to begin an alternate history, fantasy novel after writing ten science fiction novels
  • Her main character, Tori, who represents the classic dilemma women face between domestic life and pursuing one’s passion
  • All three of us love how Tori gets neither love (because of her handicap) or passion (because of society’s views against women) and how Tori is a fighter regardless of these unjust persecutions
  • The setting of A Thousand Perfect Things puts up a science obsessed England against a more spiritual/magical based India
  • Tim chooses a passage that illustrates the dilemma Tori has where her father thinks she’s perfect and loves her completely, but she feels inadequate because of how little she feels she’s achieved. Terrific discussion with Kay about peace and ambition.

THE PLANET KILLER (STAR HOUNDS 4)

The Classic Series enters NOW Space.

When last we left our heroes they were trapped in a strange dimension with strange aliens and stranger relationships.

Laura Shemzak? Still hot and ready to party… But with her handsome brother Calspar? Um, time to cool those rockets!

And the Federation? Up to their dystopian mischief. If only that Tars Northern, his ship the STARBOW and their crew — including Laura and Cal Shemzak — could be captured. But there’s a joker in this new deck. The joker is dead serious, though — a brain that used to be a man named Dr. Harla Zox. Packing a new sinister power in his starship, he’s fresh from destroying the planet that had once harbored him.

Cult favorite David Bischoff returns to the starways, aided and abetted by hot new science fiction talent Saul Garnell to bring you old fashioned space opera thrills enough to rattle any modern tractor beam!
