Exclusive Interview: “Sordidez” Author E.G. Condé

 

While everyone was saddened by the images that came out of Puerto Rico after Hurricane María made landfall in 2017, writer E.G. Condé was among those who felt it personally, since some of those images included ones of his grandmother’s home. But as horrified as he may have been, as he explains in the following email interview, it also oddly inspired him to write an eco, cli-fi, sci-fi, Taínofuturistic novella called Sordidez (paperback, Kindle).

Which brings us to Sarena Ulibarri’s sci-fi cli-fi novella Another Life (paperback, Kindle), in which a DNA test reveals that the main character doesn’t just have a skeleton in her closet, she is the skeleton. I’ll let Ulibarri explain in the following email interview.
