Episode 006 – Kelly Robson


Kelly Robson is a Canadian author based in Toronto, whose debut novella, Gods, Monsters and the Lucky Peach came out last year with Tor Books. She won the 2018 Nebula Award for best novelette with her horror story A Human Stain (Tor.com), and she has so many other great short stories available in the top venues for speculative fiction!

Amongst other things we talk about the writerly ecosystem, the economy of time in a post-scarcity world–and edgelord bullshit!
