The following audio was recorded live at the KGB Bar on February 21, 2018, with guests Cassandra Khaw and Peternelle van Arsdale. Mercurio D. Rivera subbed for Matt, who was traveling.
Peternelle’s reading is not included in this podcast.
Cassandra Khaw is the author of the Persons Non Grata series, the Rupert Wong books, and spends a lot of time worrying about those who buy her backlist because they enjoyed Bearly a Lady, her frothy paranormal rom-com. She writes video games for a living, and won an award for doing so. Her short fiction can be found in places like Tor.com, Clarkesworld, Lightspeed, and more.
