show 246: ken liu & the hidden girl

show #246

ken liu is a writer of wonderful short and epic fiction, a translator of fine chinese sci-fi, a trained lawyer, a programmer and he also owns a vr headset. since he met all the pre-requisites for being on the show – ok let’s be honest, he actually exceeded them –  drax read his new collection of stories “the hidden girl”, prepared 10 pages of questions, tossed them out, put the helmet on and a engaging conversation at #114harvest ensued. enjoy & please forgive the audio issues [bandwidth availability and self-isolation in the physical realm are clashing and we keep fingers crossed for the former to remain intact]:

read on, dear listener, read on:
