Angry Robot’s own Lavie Tidhar (author of The Bookman, his incredible steampunk novel published by Angry Robot in January (UK/Aus) and October (US/Canada)) is the editor of The Apex Book of World SF. SF Signal is running a series of interviews with some of the contributors – it promises to be a great series of interviews!
Q: What’s the appeal of speculative fiction for you?
Anything is possible in Speculative Fiction. Anything. I guess in Hard SF you need to ensure that your science makes sense but beyond that, whatever you imagine you can make work in your story. I love that. I love writing about enormous trees, and awful hells, and teenagers in suspended animation, and laughing cults and haunted apartment blocks.
