Author Caitlín R. Kiernan on “Bradbury Weather

Award-winning SF&F author Caitlín R. Kiernan provided some profound insight into her novella “Bradbury Weather” (2005) in a recent entry in her LiveJournal. The novella, which Kiernan considers to be “my best sf story thus far,” is set on Mars and is included in her new collection A is for Alien (Feb 2009).

In a recent review of A is for Alien by John Joseph Adams for the SF site, Kiernan noted that although "Bradbury Weather" is a Martian odyssey "which begins at the base of Tharsis Tholus and ends up at Lowell Crater, far to the south [...] it’s the psychological distances that the characters travel that is most important here.”
