Focus on Speculative Fiction: Joe M. McDermott and Mur Lafferty on space clones

The Fortress at the End of Time Six Wakes

Joe M. McDermott and Mur Lafferty [broadcast 2017-01-30] — CLONES! CLONES! CLONES! We featured co-host Mur Lafferty’s new Orbit Books novel Six Wakes, a murder mystery set on a spaceship, and guest Joe M. McDermott (via phone) whose just-out Tor.com Publishing book The Fortress at the End of Time sees a cloned soldier in a remote outpost coming to grips with his really quite awful situation. We talked about clones, space travel, writing, the Stonecoast MFA program, and more.
