Repeat: "Kim Stanley Robinson Interview" -- originally aired last year, 10/31/2019
Renowned science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is an opinionated person. And a thoughful one. And a great researcher. But mostly he is a very fine writer. Of the many many books he has written and published since the 1980s, my favorite is "The Years of Rice and Salt", set in an alternate world where the Plague killed 90% of northern Europe leaving empty land to be resettled by people from further south and east. This book is a series of about a dozen novellas tied together by a cast of characters who get reincarnated in different parts of the world and different circumstances and cultures. A most fascinating book!
