Hi - I'm a Scottish-born Australian-based science fiction author, sometime editor and publisher. I toot about #science and #sciencefiction related #books #movies and #tv and anything vaguely related as well as #renewableenergy and #climatechange - and sometimes scream into the void that is Australian politics. Nice to be here.
@keithstevenson welcome! :D
Look forward to learning more. I wish I had more time for reading, but my method is largely podcasts or using the local library app for audiobooks while commuting. I just started "bullshit jobs" by david graeber just before I got covid. now I've mostly recovered i should start that back up again.
@keithstevenson yeah, it's excellent for accessibility too :) look forward to it!
It can be a mixed bag though, sometimes celebrities read the book, sometimes the author, sometimes a random person.
I more often than not prefer the author because that also conveys the intention of how the interpretation of delivery is carried across.
But some authors absolutely can't perform and will drive you mad, it's an art! :)
