This is Cameron Roberson, and what you're about to listen to is an interview I did with award winning author and professor of English literature, Theodora Goss. In part 1 of this three part interview, we'll discuss:
- animal magic and Ursilla LeGuin's science fiction
- the significance of the Gothic Period(s) and anthropology to our conception of the modern monster
- Theodora's latest novel, The Strange Case of the Alchemist's Daughter
- Why the best way to start on the path of a successful novelist is to get your PhD in English literature.
