I’m very pleased to be able to write that this weekly blog feature, EATING AUTHORS, has been going nonstop since its first episode way back on June 6th, 2011.
There have been a lot of guests, and a lot of meals. Don’t worry, this isn’t a farewell post. There are plenty of authors out there whom we haven’t eaten yet, and I’m waiting on hearing back from several of them for future episodes. But for right now, the cupboard is bare. That, and the minor details that my November is chock full. In addition to delivering a novel to Tor Books, I’m appearing at three conventions (one down, two to go), and traveling to the west coast to spend some time with family. So, for at least today (and maybe even next Monday), you’ll have to manage without EATING AUTHORS.
But I’m not going to leave you empty-handed.
First, because I’ve been doing this for so long, there’s quite an impressive archive of past meals to peruse. Here’s a link that will let you wander back in time and bask in the memory of meals past.
And if that’s not enough, let me direct you to another, similarly themed blog series, one that is run by my friend, colleague, and “Tor-buddy,” the talented Fran Wilde. Fran’s series is called “Cooking the Books,” and it’s where she talks to authors about food and their books. Follow this link to her latest installment and read her interview with Robin Hobb. Fran’s own first novel, Updraft, comes out from Tor in 2015, and with a little arm-twisting I’ll get her here on this blog to talk about her own most memorable meal.
