Event Horizon June 2018 08

Prolific author Jane Yolen reading from her work. In a wonderful piece of timing the major science fiction and fantasy publisher Tor sent me an advance copy of Jane's short novella in verse, Finding Baba Yaga, a wonderful modern take on an old, old myth (it also arrived beautifully wrapped, with a tag bearing a quote from Neil Gaiman and art from the great Charles Vess).

 

It arrived only a couple of days ago and here was Jane as a guest and reader at this month's Event Horizon. Talk about good timing. Jane was kind enough to sign my advance copy for me. The novella is told in verse, and the best way to experience poetry, I think, is to hear the author reading it out, so an absolute pleasure to have that opportunity
