I’ll also tell you about a new release historical fiction, Sold on a Monday, based on the true Depression-era photograph of two children with a ‘For Sale’ sign next to them.
Each week in Season 1 I’ll be bringing you one of my favourite speculative fiction books. For anyone not familiar with the term, I also explain what it is in this episode!
And for Speculating on Speculative Fiction this week, I’ve chosen the entire Sookie Stackhouse series, which you may know better as the True Blood HBO series. It’s funny, irreverent, includes plenty of vampires and is set in small-town Louisiana, the deep south of the U.S.A. Perfect for lovers of Buffy the Vampire Slayer who are all grown up.
I also give a shout-out to one of my favourite charities, Share the Dignity. They’re doing amazing work in Australia to end period poverty. Each year I support their #itsinthebag drive to help homeless women and girls around Australia have a brighter Christmas by giving them their very own handbag packed with life’s little luxuries. Find out more on the Share the Dignity website.
