Exclusive Interview: “Prison Of Sleep” Author Tim Pratt

 

As someone who has trouble falling asleep, I am envious of those who find it easy. But I draw the line at “…and then wake up in an alternate reality with no way to get home.” I hate when that happens. But as is so often the case, what’s terrible is real life is great in fiction. This brings me to Tim Pratt’s multiverse sci-fi novel Prison Of Sleep (paperback, Kindle), in which the main character has the aforementioned sleep problem. In the following email interview, Pratt discusses this novel, and the one that preceded it, Doors Of Sleep.

In 2019, when writer Tim Pratt was doing interviews about his sci-fi space opera novel The Forbidden Stars, he said that while it was the final book of his Axiom trilogy, “I expect to still write stories and novellas set in the world. … I want to do a short book each about the engineer Ashok, the A.I. Shall, and the alien Lantern.” Jump ahead two years, to now, and we have The Alien Stars And Other Novellas (paperback, Kindle), three stories about Ashok, Shall, and Lantern. In the following email interview, Pratt discusses these three novellas, as well as the three unrelated novels he’s either recently released or will have out soon.
