In Episode 7, author Cynthia Kraack and I discuss her novels, Minnesota Cold and Ashwood, both set in a bleak future and featuring strong female protagonists. Along the way we talk about the difference between speculative fiction and science fiction, how women approach leadership roles, and the evolution of strong female characters in genre fiction.
Note: The name I couldn’t remember is Nalo Hopkinson
