Is This Thing On? Trent Radio

Here it is, my first post.

I was recently interviewed on Trent Radio’s Speculating Canada by my friend, the wonderful Derek Newman-Stille, an Aurora-winning blogger and radio host. Derek gently chastised me before and after the interview for not having a website – not the first to do so. I’ve finally caved in. Congratulations, Derek. Or, rather, thanks? Yeah, thanks.

The Speculating Canada website is a great online resource for thoughtful, and accessible, discussions of Canadian speculative fiction. It’s been running for a few years and Derek received the 2013 Aurora award for Best Fan Publication. The radio show is an extension of that, where Derek interviews Canadian authors (last week was Craig Davidson and before that was Gemma Files). I’ve been following Derek’s blog almost since its inception, and I tune in regularly for the radio show. Obviously, it was with tremendous pleasure that I accepted the invitation for the interview.

The interview itself runs about an hour. In it we discuss poetry, my editing, aging, disability, the human body, and several other things. I was a little awkward at first, but Derek quickly put me at ease.

  1. Thank you Dominik. It was such a pleasure to interview you. It is amazing how much you can say with a few lines of poetry. The potency of those words, the spellcraft of phonemes wielded by you truly creates a form of magic whose realm is the imagination. Your poetry always evokes new modes of thinking for me and I was so glad that you could share your insights both through poetry and through explanation for my listeners. It was a pleasure to have you on my show and I can’t wait for our next interview!
