Thanks to one of my readers, I can let you know about this coming Friday’s edition of the Radio 4 show, Woman’s Hour, in which they will be asking, “What’s happened to the tough women in science fiction?”
Knowing the BBC, this could go any way. It might just be a couple of minor celebrities saying that once there was Ripley and now there isn’t. Alternatively they could have Farah Mendlesohn on the show again, presumably having to explain that she’s still alive.
Then again, the UK edition of God’s War is due out on Thursday. Has the BBC discovered Nyx? Goddess, I hope so.
Anyway, I shall listen in and see what they say. If anyone knows any more about it, do let me know.
