Issue #13: J.J. Irwin on “Haniver”

” ‘Haniver’ started life as my week-four story at Clarion South. Our tutor for the week was Gardener Dozois, and I wanted to write something closer to the science fiction end of the spec fic spectrum.” Read J.J. Irwin’s entire Shimmer interview, and then listen to a bit of “Haniver” from Shimmer #13.

“Tim Powers, Patricia McKillip, William Gibson and Terry Pratchett all got in before I started consciously extracting useful tools from other stories, so their influence runs deeper and (for want of a better phrase) more organically.”
