Jake and Ron chat with the acclaimed author Juliette Wade about her projected 5 book series, The Broken Trust.
Juliette Wade is a novelist ... and after listening to this interview, you'll understand why it's a hard-earned and well-deserved title for this masterclass worldbuilder.
Her background is impressive. She is fluent in French and Japanese, has degrees in linguistics and anthropology, and also boasts a Ph.D. in education.
Juliette started writing fiction in 1999, and her short stories have been featured in Analog, Clarkesworld, and Fantasy & Science Fiction magazines. But she is perhaps best known for her projected five-volume Broken Trust series, whose latest volume, Inheritors of Power, was published earlier this year by DAW. Juliette's specialty is sociological science-fiction, of which Broken Trust is one of our finest contemporary examples. Each stratum of Broken Trust's complex caste system has its own vocation, ideals, manners, and culture--and naturally, they come into a devastating conflict. There's a lot to discuss, so let's dive in!
