Joining us at Audible Studios is Tade Thompson, one of science fiction’s most exciting new voices, and author of Rosewater.
Thompson is releasing The Wormwood trilogy which documents an alien biodome in Nigeria and the city built around it, desperate for the biodome’s rumored healing powers. Book one of the series, Rosewater, received multiple award nominations and book two, The Rosewater Insurrection has been much anticipated. Thompson writes alongside his work as a hospital psychiatrist.
We spoke about Tade about how he created the town and society in the books, how he kept track of a 'then' and 'now' narrative, and why he has mixed feelings about trilogies.
