Ep. 75 - Nina Allan

Page One - The Writer's Podcast

Nina Allan has won the British Science Fiction Award, the Novella Award, the Kitschies Red Tentacle and France’s Grand Prix de L’Imaginaire. Her first published piece of fiction appeared in a magazine called Dark Horizons in 2002. Since then, her stories have featured in numerous magazines and anthologies including The Year’s Best Science Fiction, Best Horror of the Year and The Mammoth Book of Best British Crime. Her latest book, The Good Neighbours, is released on 10 June 2021.We loved talking to Nina about her lifelong love of speculative fiction, including science fiction, the gothic, weird fiction and good old fashioned ghost stories and why she is particularly interested in work that tests the boundaries of genre: playing with philosophical ideas, savouring language, and experimenting with form. We talked about how SFF and horror cons can be a great place for budding writers to make connections, and hear about her rather unique redrafting process!Links:Buy The Good Neigbours and Nina's other books now!Visit Nina's websiteCymera Festival 2021Watch our video panel Page One Sessions as we discuss writing with great authors: https://youtu.be/gmE6iCDYn-sThe Page One Podcast is brought to you by Write Gear, creators of Page One - the Writer's Notebook.

Episode 244: Renay, Nina Allan & the Weight of Fannish History

The Coode Street Podcast

This week we are joined by reviewer, critic, podcaster and one half of the Ladybusiness team, Renay, and British Science Fiction Award winning author of The Race, Nina Allan, to discuss the implications of Renay’s recent essay on Strange Horizons, ‘Communities: Weight of History’.In an engaging discussing we touch on what it is that makes a science fiction fan, what a fan needs to know about SF, whether there is a ‘science fiction canon’, how much of you actually need to be familiar with, whether there is cultural pressure to read stories by men, and if women are being made invisible and written out of SF history. Oh, and probably some stuff we’ve left out. We are very grateful to both Nina and Renay for making time to be part of the podcast and, as always, we hope you enjoy the episode. More next week!
