After the last marathon episode, we have kept things more succinct. First up, Charlotte, Lucy, and Megan geek-out about the 2016 SFF Awards season. Women seem to finally be getting their due and we are all kinds of chuffed about it. After all, women have been writing fantastic books for years, so it’s about bloody time we got acknowledged for it!

If you missed all the winners, you can find all the information here:

Hugo Awards

We follow up our brief awards round-up with Charlotte interviewing extreme horror writer Dawn Cano. Don’t know what extreme horror is? Don’t worry, we weren’t sure either. Let’s just say this: it isn’t for the faint of heart. Among the other topics discussed are self-publishing, splatterpunk, and what (if anything) scares an extreme horror writer.

In their discussion, Charlotte and Dawn mention a number of fantastic authors. If you want to expand your to-read list, look no further:
