CBC Radio column: space books

I’m fortunate this summer to spend every week talking on-air about books, and if you’re outside of Canada, or you miss me in your regions, I will post the audio here.

This is me chatting with CBC All in a Day’s host Alan Neal about my favourite space books: http://www.cbc.ca/listen/shows/all-in-a-day/segment/13468251

  1. Speaking as a Jew, I may have to check out StarClass. It sounds like such an out-there kind of concept. It might even be a sci-fi novel my dad would read without having me guilt trip him (that’s how he usually gets around to reading my work, LOL).

    If I had to recommend a good space book, Red Rising by Pierce Brown comes to mind. It’s this story about how this guy finds out that his people are slaves in a society of humans that have spread out over the solar system and believe they are the pinnacle of evolution, and he infiltrates the top class of the society and tries to bring them down from the inside. Definitely recommend it and its two sequels, Golden Son and Morning Star.

    And as for what would be outside if I were to discover a new planet…even if I was writing a Doctor Who story, you can probably guess what I’d find. I mean, I’m kind of predictable that way.
