Episode 113 – Madeline Ashby

On July 31, 2012, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

In episode 113 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio welcome Madeline Ashby, author of the new novel, vN.

About Madeline Ashby:

Madeline Ashby is a science fiction writer, futurist, anime fan, and immigrant. Her debut novel, vN, is available for pre-order now. Her non-fiction has appeared at BoingBoing, io9, WorldChanging, and Tor.com.

About vN:

vN introduces us to Amy. She’s been grown in a stable family environment, with her robot mother and human father. But alone of all her kind, her human-protecting failsafe has stopped working for some reason. Soon she’s on the run from the law, and worse – everyone’s after her, some to use her as a weapon, others to destroy her. Her sole friend is a robot boy who’s programmed to only like humans. This is pure science fiction entertainment, combining a stunning extrapolation of a robot future with bravura kick-ass Manga-inspired action – think Philip K Dick meets Joss Whedon.

You can read the review of vN by Cathy Russell right here on Functional Nerds!
