Join me on Saturday, 2-4pm, for Hannah’s Bookshelf on North Manchester FM. This week I’m welcoming back a guest who appeared on the show in April – the amazing Gwyneth Jones – we had so much fun on the first show, we decided to do it again!
Gwyneth Jones was born in Manchester, educated by the long-suffering nuns of the Sacred Heart, Blackley and at Notre Dame Grammar School, Cheetham Hill. She is the author of many fantasy, horror novels and ghost stories for teenagers using the name Ann Halam, and several well regarded sf and fantasy novels and stories for adults: notably the Bold As Love series, and the Aleutian Trilogy. She has won the Arthur C. Clarke award (for Bold As Love); the Children of the Night award (for The Fear Man, as Ann Halam); the Tiptree award (for White Queen), two World Fantasy awards (for the story “The Grass Princess”, and for the collection Seven Tales and a Fable), the Philip K Dick award (for Life) and the Science Fiction Research Association’s Pilgrim award. She lives in Brighton with her husband, four intelligent goldfish and two cats called Ginger and Milo; she likes old movies, practicing yoga, and staring out of the window.
Gwyneth was my guest on Hannah’s Bookshelf on 16 April, and you can see more about that show here. This week, we’re going to be chatting more about Gwyneth’s work, and talking about books, Europe and rock ‘n’ roll (including the playlists Gwyneth wrote for the Bold as Love series).
Catch the show on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
