AISFP 278 – Book Reviewer Sarah Chorn

Moses brings us a fantastic interview with Bookworm Blues herself, Sarah Chorn. From her website:

I have been a compulsive reader my whole life. At a young age I found my reading niche in the fantastic genre of Speculative Fiction. I blame my active imagination for the hobbies that threaten to consume my life. I am a freelance writer and editor, a semi-pro nature photographer, world traveler, two-time cancer survivor, and mom to one rambunctious toddler. In my ideal world, I’d do nothing but drink lots of tea and read from a never ending pile of speculative fiction books.

Other than this website, you can find me on SF Signal for my weekly column Special Needs in Strange Worlds where I try my hardest to get a conversation going (and keep it going) about the importance of disabilities in this genre I love so much. Occasionally you can find me on the podcasts of those brave enough to ask me to participate, doing interviews or writing guest posts around the internet, and hopefully soon I’ll be participating in some conventions.

You can find me annoying people on Twitter as @BookwormBlues, on Facebook, and here, on Bookworm Blues.

Among the topics discussed in this podcast:

  • How Sarah reads 200 books a year (hint: it’s similiar to have Kevin J. Anderson writes ten books a year);
  • How she was introduced to speculative fiction;
  • How many book reviewers aspire to work in publishing;
  • Following guidelines;
  • What to review and what not to review;
  • Why she’s burned out on epic fantasy these days;
  • Her column on special needs and what inspired it;
  • Her five favorite novels from 2014 . . . so far.
