Good SF Day in the LA Times

Nalo Hopkinson gives a very interesting interview to reporter Mindy Farabee, “Nalo Hopkinson’s science fiction and real-life family”.

Nalo Hopkinson is trying to mess with your mind. The much-lauded writer of science fiction and fantasy sits at one of her favorite Mexican joints, Tio’s Tacos, a funky art-strewn restaurant near the campus of UC Riverside, where she has taught creative writing since 2011.

There’s also a video interview with George R. R. Martin who comments about the good reception for a game based on his “Song of Ice and Fire” series, then reveals he hasn’t played video games for decades.

“It wasn’t that I didn’t like them,” Martin told the Los Angeles Times on the red carpet. “It was that I liked them too much. I think I probably lost a novel or two there.”
