Main Fiction: “Discovering Life” by Kim Stanley Robinson

Robinson began publishing novels in 1984. His work has been described as “humanist science fiction” and “literary science fiction”. Robinson himself has been a proud defender and advocate of science fiction as a genre, which he regards as one of the most powerful of all literary forms.

Narrator: Krista Sirota

Short Fiction: “Purple Mars” by Kim Stanley Robinson

Narrator: Loulou Szal

Loulou Szal is school teacher specialising in English and History living in Sydney, Australia. She is an author of children’s and young-adult books and occasionally, a writer of fantasy short stories.

In her university years she competed in public speaking and debating competitions, distinguishing herself admirably, as well as dabbling in radio drama and having a conversation with Robin Williams live on air. She has enjoyed her work with StarShipSofa and can’t wait for her next episode. She eats too much chocolate, reads too many books and lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband, two teenage children, and the most hyperactive Jack Russel.
