I’ll keep this intro short so you can dive right into the intro. Madeline Ashby is on the cutting edge of written SF. (That’s “science fiction” or “speculative fiction” for those of you who are more familiar with “sci-fi,” a phrase that’s flamed by some in the SF community.)
So far she’s played mostly in the short story realm, but her first novel’s due at the end of the month, and it’s already proven worthy of highly positive reviews from sites like i09. Here’s what she has to say about her book, vN, and a number of interesting topics.
