In episode 302 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio chat with, Julie Czerneda author of several books including Hidden in Sight (Web Shifters) and the editor for the Nebula Awards Showcase 2017 anthology.
A love of reading turned into a love of writing for Julie E. Czerneda. A former biologist, then writer and editor of non-fiction, in 1997 DAW Books published Julie’s first sf novel, “A Thousand Words for Stranger” and she hasn’t stopped since. Her work has received international acclaim, multiple awards,and best-selling status. You’ll find her work in anthologies as well, as she enjoys working with other writers. Julie is a popular speaker, whether on writing, science, or the use of science fiction to promote scientific literacy. Her recent adventures included being Guest of Honour for the national conventions of New Zealand and Australia, as well as Master of Ceremonies for Anticipation, the Montreal Worldcon.
Having finished editing SFWA’s 2017 Nebula Awards Showcase, Julie is back to the concluding trilogy to The Clan Chronicles, the SF series that began with her first novel. DAW Books has bought a further three titles in her fantasy series, Night’s Edge, but first? More ESEN!
