Bookmarks with Matt Suddain

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:19 pm on 27 July 2016

Matt Shirley - whose pen-name is Matt Suddain, is a New Zealander living in London and had been writing for a number of publications before deciding on becoming a proper author and producing novels. His first book, Theatre of the Gods was a 600-page fantasy epic steampunk space opera. His second book is now out, called Hunters and Collectors and again deals with outerspace and is based on a character described as the universe's most feared food critic. It's not just sci-fi but also a horror and detective story. In Bookmarks today, he talks to Jesse about the books, films, music and places that have inspired him.
