It creeps every closer to Christmas and as the crew at Galactic Chat wind down we thought our faithful listeners deserved another early present. Please enjoy Alex talking to Dr Andrew Macrae about Trucksong:
This week Alex chats to Dr Andrew Macrae about his debut novel Trucksong from Twelfth Planet Press - A dystopian science fiction novel about lost love, AI trucks and the search for meaning in a post-apocalyptic Australia.
They talk about his PHD thesis (which is far more interesting than this sentence indicates), the soundtrack that he and his band put together for the book and the experimental version of the book written entirely in a devolved post apocalyptic language. The book has been making noise in both Specfic and Litfic circles.
