Ep. 24 Knocking on Fantasy’s Door with Alix Harrow 11-13-19

Carrie and I have a very special guest today. Alix Harrow is a Hugo award-winning writer of historical fantasy fiction who also happens to be a fellow Kentuckian. Her debut novel, The Ten Thousand Doors of January, has been called by Kirkus Reviews a ‘A love letter to imagination, adventure, the written word,’ and NPR books says it is one that should go on your Favorites Shelf. It has been on the Los Angeles Times Bestsellers List. She is a rising star in the burgeoning female revolution taking place in the science fiction and fantasy genres.

On November 16, she will be one of the authors you can find at the Kentucky Book Festival being held at the Alltech Arena of the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington KY.

We interviewed Alix at the library of her alma mater, Berea College, in Berea, KY. She talked with us about the sub-genre of portal fantasies and her love-hate relationship with them
as a child, what influence becoming a mother had on writing the book, why she loves Chicago-style footnotes, and details about the second novel she is furiously trying to finish.

If you would like to follow her on social media, she can be found at Twitter (@AlixEHarrow) and Instagram (@alix.e.harrow).
