For the past fifteen years the podcast Escape Pod has presented science fiction stories by both established writers and writers hoping to establish themselves. In honor of this milestone, current co-hosts Mur Lafferty and S.B. Divya — both respected sci-fi writers in their own right — have assembled the new book, Escape Pod: The Science Fiction Anthology (paperback, Kindle), which includes stories by such iconic science fiction writers as N.K. Jemisin, John Scalzi, Sarah Gailey, Tim Pratt, and Lafferty herself. In the following email interview, Lafferty and Divya discuss why they put this book together, and what went into its creation.
Please note: All answers come from both Mur Lafferty and S.B. Divya unless otherwise indicated.
