The Speculative Fiction Cantina: your weekly hypodermic injection of science fiction, fantasy, horror, alternate history, and things weird and wonderful in the world of books and writers. We ask authors the hard questions. You'll hear from writers who bend the rules and drive the narrative. Join S. Evan Townsend on this journey over the rainbow and through the looking glass. And remember to take the red pill.
Today's Guests are Voss Foster and Justin Oldham
Voss Foster lives in the middle of the Eastern Washington Desert, where he writes speculative fiction and drinks far too much coffee. When he can be pried away from his keyboard, he can be found singing, cooking, playing trombone, and belly dancing, though rarely all at the same time. He is the author of Tartaros and The King Jester Trilogy, both available through Prizm Books.
Voss' books include:
The Jester Prince
Justin Oldham is a legally blind writer who lives in Anchorage Alaska. He was born with an eye problem called Aniridia, sometimes known as Sturge-Weber Syndrome. This means he has no iris or lens in his eyes. He lost an eye to glaucoma when he was a teenager.
In addition to his speculative fiction which features Alaskan themes, Justin also writes on the subject of vision impairment with guidance from medical professionals and disability experts. These titles explain what it’s like to be legally blind or to lose an eye.
Justin's books include:
Tales from the Kodiak Starport
