Jacey Bedford is a British writer of science fiction and historical fantasy. She is published by DAW in the USA. Her Psi-Tech and Rowankind trilogies are out now. Her new book, The Amber Crown, is out in January 2022. Her short stories have appeared in anthologies and magazines on both sides of the Atlantic, and have been translated into Estonian, Galician, Catalan and Polish. In another life she was a singer with vocal trio, Artisan, and once sang live on BBC Radio4 accompanied by the Doctor (Who?) playing spoons.
Today she tells us about her Six Books
1. What book are you currently reading?
2. What upcoming book are you really excited about?
The two I was waiting for dropped together a couple of days ago, giving me the delightful dilemma of which one to read first. The first is the aforementioned Saving Time, and the second is T. Kingfisher's Paladin's Hope, which is the third book in her Saint of Steel series, set in the same world as her Clocktaur Wars books. (T. Kingfisher is the adult pen name of well loved children's author Ursula Vernon.) The next book I've pre-ordered is A Catalogue of Catastrophe: Chronicles of St Mary's 13 by Jodi Taylor. Any new book in the St Mary's sequence is a buy-on-sight for me. Also Risen: The final Alex Verus Novel is due soon. I'm looking forward to discovering how Benedict Jacka ends the series.
3. Is there a book you’re currently itching to re-read?
Oh, so many books and so little time. If I had all the time in the world I would love to read my way through all of Lois McMaster Bujold's bibliography, especially her Vorkosiverse books. I also had a sudden yen to re-read Peter O'Donnell's Modesty Blaise novels which I haven't looked at for decades.
4. A book that you love and wish that you yourself had written.
5. What’s one book, which you read as a child or a young adult, that has had a lasting influence on your writing?
6. And speaking of that, what’s your latest book, and why is it awesome?
Thank you, Jacey!
