August with Bernard Beckett

Trapped in a car wreck, upside down, bleeding, broken and in pain, Tristan and Grace are staring at death. As they await their fate, holding only a glimmer of hope they might be seen and rescued, we discover the stories of their lives, the sequences of events that brought them together and the shocking truth about the cause of their crash. New Zealand favourite Bernard Beckett shares the journey behind his new novel, August.

Thrice the Work with Anthony Eaton

Anthony Eaton’s The Darklands trilogy took him almost ten years to write, with final instalment Daywards drawing some powerful conclusions about the world we live in. In this session, he discusses the trials and terrors of creating a three-part series, as well as the concepts that informed his books and the good and bad parts of science fiction writing.
