Black Gate Interview: Paolo Bacigalupi

My interview of Paolo Bacigalupi just went live on Black Gate. I'll also embed it below, here.

Paolo and I have been buds for over a decade now, since his very first science fiction convention ever. We timed this interview to coincide with the release of The Water Knife, his latest novel, which takes place in a mega-drought-stricken American southwest (which is where he and I both live, incidentally.)



For the first 20 minutes or so of the interview, we talk about The Water Knife and drought in general. For those who are most interested in hearing the history of Paolo’s writing career to date, that starts at 21:50. 46:50 is where we discuss the specifics of how Windup Girl was published.
At the very end, my connection suddenly died, so sorry for the abrupt cut-off… Once you’ve had a chance to listen, go check out his latest book!
