I’m interviewing author Mary Robinette Kowal over at USA Today’s Happily Ever After Blog! Today marks my second “Sci-Fi Encounters” column for HEA and I had so much fun with Ms. Kowal – I love her Glamourist Histories Series, which are reminiscent of Jane Austen in setting and tone but with a fantastical twist only MRK could provide.
Without A Summer (April 2, 2013) was her most recent book in the series but Valour and Vanity will be released in April. I can’t wait for the new book – here’s what the description on Amazon has to say: “…a Regency version of a heist movie with a healthy dose of magic sprinkled in….”
Who can resist that?
In preparation for doing the interview, I reread her Hugo award winning science fiction short story “For Want Of A Nail”, which was just as terrific as I’d remembered…the story is also available on Amazon currently.
I’m also recommending a few relatively recent science fiction/fantasy romance novels that I thought were in a similar vein, mixing history and fantasy/magic. And there’s a movie recommendation, so I hope you’ll drop on by!
