Edition twenty: Rachel Craw – ‘Spark’; Krissy Kneen –‘ An Uncertain Grace’; James Bradley ‘ Clade’
Three science fiction authors for this week. In ‘Spark’ Rachel Craw has a group of teenagers, fumbling with their own emerging feelings and identities caught up in a tale of genetic engineering and superheroes, James Bradley explains the title of his work ‘Clade’ and reads from the opening chapter when the hero has elected to go on a mission to Antarctica, while Krissy Kneen in ‘An Uncertain Grace’ really gets our heads turned around with the idea of observing the world through other people’s eyes- even their skin!
Music track ‘ Robotica’ by Michael Fairley from ‘Boy from Mars’
