AI, the Bradbury tradition and imagined futures – interview at One Giant Read

one giantWhen astronaut Major Tim Peake blasted off for the International Space Station, the UK literary community launched a project of its own. One Giant Read is described as ‘a shared reading experience from Literature Works in partnership with the UK Space Agency, Royal National Institute for Blind People and supported by Gollancz, the Poetry Archive and Plymouth University’.

I’m beyond delighted that Lifeform Three is included in this month’s edition, which explores artificial intelligence in both the provable world (I refer you to that fetching shot of Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game) and in speculative fiction.

They interviewed me here about writing in the traditions of SF, and reviewed Lifeform Three here. It’s such a nice review that for the rest of today I’ll be wearing One Giant Smile.

    Great interview, Roz! Lifeform 3 has been one of my favourite books since I first read it, but I had no idea you had such a deep sci-fi background. I sincerely hope this means you’ll write more in and around the genre. Oh and I have a rule-of-thumb definition of sci-fi – if the story cannot happen without some invention/concept/discovery, then it’s sci-fi.🙂

      Hi Andrea! I read all sorts of things, but yes, I have a soft spot for SF.

      That’s a good definition!

Your turn!
