Our friends over at Speculating Canada have been doing a wonderful set of reviews of Wrestling With Gods—and I’ll link to more of them in another post—but here is a recent interview Derek Newman-Stille did with me about the anthology.
On this episode of Speculating Canada on Trent Radio, I interview author and editor Jerome Stueart about the most recent book in the long-lived Tesseracts series Tesseracts Eighteen: Wrestling with Gods. Tesseracts Eighteen is focused on the theme of religion in Canadian speculative fiction and Jerome and I discuss the relationship between religion and SF, myth and storytelling and their ability to shape religious and science fictional worlds, invented religions, new explorations of existing religions, and generally the power of stories as pedagogy, as a teaching and learning medium.
We conducted our interview outside in Toronto, so please excuse the background wind and noise distortions.
