Long time listeners may remember Episode 79, where I talked a little about Dianne as part of a larger interview with Gareth Powell. Fans of either writer will want to grab that episode as well because this couple is one of the greatest things going on in sci-fi right now. Both appeared on panels at the Cymera Festival in the UK.
I enjoyed this conversation so much, as we delved into a lot about Galla-Deia, the humanoid protector of our species born from a gemstone and raised by a sentient robot. Dianne's series is part Star Wars, part GoT, and we discovered, as we talked, that it's also part Foundation series and My Fair Lady as well. It's just really good, and Galla-Deia's character is a big part of that.
The series is four books long, but the one that we focus most of our discussion on is book two, Ephemeris, which actually serves as both a prequel and sequel to Heliopause, book one. Get a hold of both of them at Mysterious Galaxy, my indie store of choice, and the place where I first met Dianne. Once you've finished Ephemeris, you can go over to Dianne's blog and see some artwork about Galla-Deia.
You can learn more about Dianne's work at her website HERE. She can also be found on Twitter also. In fact, you can get a hold of her on just about every social media site. Just look for the links on her website. Finally, Dianne also interviews authors. Go to her YouTube page to learn more!
