Interview: Hugo-finalist Alec Nevala-Lee

I had the privilege of interviewing Chicago-area author Alec Nevala-Lee about his group biography Astounding: John W. Campbell, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard, and the Golden Age of Science Fiction , just as he was named a 2019 Hugo finalist for Best Related Work.

Alec and I met at November 2018’s Deep Dish SFF reading series at Volumes Bookcafe . We got into a lively conversation over ramen with Speculative Literature Foundation founder and Deep Dish host Mary Anne Mohanraj about the nuances of nerd culture, and I was delighted to have the opportunity to continue the conversation after reading his work.

Read the full interview at Third Coast Review.  Many thanks to my professional, freakishly-on-time transcriptionist Grace Hall for saving me from premature arthritis, and best of luck to Alec at the Hugo’s, and on his next biography project.

Know any Chicago-based or Chicago-themed writers who’d like to feature an interview in Third Coast Review? Contact me at terry dot galvan dot writer at gmail dot com.
