Nalo Hopkinson and Karen Lord in Conversation

This is the first of the podcasts I was able to record on location at the World Fantasy Convention in San Diego, California. World Fantasy Award-winning Nalo Hopkinson and World Fantasy Award-nominated Karen Lord sit down to talk about Caribbean folklore, H. P. Lovecraft, OCD vampires, and much else. This podcast has two master story-tellers telling stories from the Caribbean, resulting in both shivers and much laughter. I hope you’ll enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it.

P.S. In the interests of post hoc completeness, the story that Karen tells about the baccou is ‘Water Under the Bridge’ by Richard Lynch. Specifically, it can be found in Poui: The Cave Hill Journal of Creative Writing. No. 10, 2009, p 33. With a citation like that, it’s like there’s an academic around here somewhere… ;-)

    Loved listening to the ladies talking about Caribbean folklore. So much we don’t know as Caribbean people about our great stories which these ladies put to pen in such grand fashion.
