Interviews With The Fantastic
InterGalactic Interview With Mary Robinette Kowal
    by Lawrence M. Schoen

Mary Robinette Kowal has a history with motion and voice that informs her work as an author. A professional puppeteer, she's intimately aware of the little movements that bestow life on the otherwise inanimate--I've seen her do this firsthand, sitting next to me, casually animating an object with the kind of effortlessness that comes from expert levels of practice. That same appreciation of nuance shows up in her work as a voice actor, recording audio books for best-selling authors like John Scalzi, Seanan McGuire, and Cory Doctorow. In 2011 she joined Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, and Howard Tayler on the Hugo and Parsec Award-winning podcast, Writing Excuses, dispensing practical writing advice to listeners in entertaining and pithy doses. Her fiction has brought her much acclaim, including the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, multiple Nebula nominations, and two Hugo Awards. While her short fiction runs the gauntlet in terms of style and settings, as a novelist she's carved out a space for herself with the five volume Glamourist Histories--a Regency series with an elevator pitch of "Jane Austen with magic." Last month, she switched gears with the release of Ghost Talkers, a World War I alternate history in which teams of professional mediums, the "Spirit Corps," commune with soldiers who have died on the front lines, gathering specifics of troop movements to pass along to military intelligence officers.
