Peter, George and Nathan talk about The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu, a “silkpunk” fantasy story about empires, brotherhood and narwhal submarines

Apologies for the unannounced brief hiatus, but the Lizard People are back and with a (cranky) vengeance talking about grace, kings and The Grace of Kings.

This episode contains extensive spoilers, so consider reading the book before listening. Or do what Nathan did and give up a third of the way through. Why did he do that? Listen and find out! It’s probably not what you think (it’s exactly what you think)!

Episode 00012 will be Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson, all about space and stuff. Fun!

Kim Stanley Robinson is a New York Times bestseller and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards. He is the author of more than twenty books, including the bestselling Mars trilogy and the critically acclaimed Forty Signs of Rain, The Years of Rice and Salt and 2312. In 2008, he was named a “Hero of the Environment” by Time magazine, and he works with the Sierra Nevada Research Institute. He lives in Davis, California.
