A question for Jack Noble

Q: What book or books inspired you as a child?

A: Like many people, my childhood was practically made of books. Something that stands out as especially captivating is the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. Images from those books are seared into my mind. Even today, certain sights regularly transport me back to that world: Turkish delight, lampposts in the snow, paintings of ships, and, of course, wardrobes.

A question for Gerald Warfield

Q: Why do you write speculative rather than realistic fiction?

A: I can’t help it. I was imprinted at an early age. As a little boy, I used to lie in bed and dream up stories that I’d continue from night to night. As an adult, I don’t limit myself to speculative fiction, but the increased possibilities, the broader palette for both character and plot are irresistible.

A question for Octavia Cade

Q: How does writing speculative fiction affect your daily life (not as a writer, but as a person)?

A: For me, speculative fiction is a way of engaging with metaphor. Often that involves different ways of writing and thinking about science. I think if you want to attract more people to science – more than just the logically-minded, for instance – you’ve got to provide a different sort of pathway, a different means of engaging. I find science fiction in particular helps me to perceive science more broadly, from a place of imagination as well as method.
