    Small Beer Podcast 21: Mary Rickert’s “Cold Fires”

    Small Beer Podcast 21: Mary Rickert’s “Cold Fires”

    Being the internet age, I’ve learned as much about Mary Rickert from her Facebook feed as I have from the biography on her website. These are the facts I am confident are true: Mary Rickert dislikes the Distraction Culture of smartphones and loves flowers, she is open to new adventures and has spent many hours […]

    Small Beer Podcast 20: Carmen Maria Machado’s “I Bury Myself”

    Small Beer Podcast 20: Carmen Maria Machado’s “I Bury Myself”

    Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet No. 33 is a strange and extremely personal cultivation. Guest edited by Michael J. Deluca, it themes and focuses and ponders on our ecological future in a way that doesn’t seem to limit the writing at all. LCRW No. 33 is about people and relationships. It is also about this new […]

    Small Beer Podcast 19: Nathan Ballingrud’s “You Go Where It Takes You”

    Small Beer Podcast 19: Nathan Ballingrud’s “You Go Where It Takes You”

    Nathan Ballingrud is one of those authors who should be far better known. Hopefully, this collection will do something to bridge that particular gap. I don’t write fan letters and I don’t read stories that sometimes fall across the border into grotesque, but then Nathan Ballingrud’s North American Lake Monsters came along. Immediately after I […]

    Small Beer Podcast 18: Kelly Link’s “Stone Animals” & Cider

    Small Beer Podcast 18: Kelly Link’s “Stone Animals” & Cider

    Old friends never go out of style. Yet, somehow, too often they manage to slip into the dusty corners of our lives. Each time one pops up and disrupts my helter skelter schedule, I feel a frisson of rediscovery. “Yes, this is why we remember each other. This really is how it used to be.” […]

    Small Beer Podcast 17: Angélica Gorodischer’s “The González Family’s Fight for a Better World”

    Small Beer Podcast 17: Angélica Gorodischer’s “The González Family’s Fight for a Better World”

    I don’t always take authors very seriously, but when Angélica Gorodischer indicated in Trafalgar’s foreword that the stories should be read in order, something in her tone made me pay attention. And something in her writing. She amused me right from the beginning, and so I decided to take her at her word and allow the […]

    Small Beer Podcast 16: Kij Johnson’s “The Empress Jingu Fishes”

    Small Beer Podcast 16: Kij Johnson’s “The Empress Jingu Fishes”

    Hallelujah! Another podcast is neigh. And to everyone’s delight here at the Small Beer Studios, it’s another piece of fiction. Kij Johnson’s debut collection, At the Mouth of the River of Bees, came out in mid-2012. And people were excited. Kij can rock climb. She can teach. She knows both Old Norse and Latin. But […]
