Signal Boost #20: Sandra Odell and Ausma Zehanat Khan (The Bloodprint)

26 Sep

In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Sandra Odell, prolific short story writer, joins Jen to talk about disability, sexuality, and gender representation in science fiction and fantasy, how her identities inform her short stories, and what good representation actually looks like.

Then Ausma Zehanat Khan, author of the Esa Khattak and Rachel Getty mysteries, joins Jen to talk about her debut fantasy novel, The Bloodprint, the influence of the Silk Road on the story, how human rights act as a through-line in all her work, and how she loves stories in which women get to take control of their destinies.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
