The Compleat Discography

The Wee Free Men

Episode Summary

The first in the Tiffany Aching series from the Discworld, and an utter delight. Speaking of utter delights, we are joined this month by multiple award-winning author, Terry Pratchett superfan, and utter delight Ursula Vernon.

Episode Notes

Some recommended resources for organizations fighting abortion bans and advancing reproductive justice:

Tiffany Aching, a 9 year old living on a sheep farm in the rolling grassy lowlands of the Disc, is not your ordinary child. However, we saw a lot of ourselves in her. This meditation on loss, childhood, and what it means to be someone who actually THINKS and LOOKS in a world full of people too busy just getting by is a beautiful, scary, and hilarious story written by, as our guest puts it, "possibly one of the greatest authors of the last thousand years".

Ursula Vernon, aka T. Kingfisher is the author and illustrator of far more projects than is probably healthy. She has written over fifteen books for children (many of which Aaron has read to his children multiple times with great enjoyment), at least a dozen novels for adults, an epic webcomic called “Digger” and various short stories and other odds and ends.

She has won Hugos, Mythopoeic, Locus, Sequoia, Nebula, Lodestar, Dragon, and numerous other awards, often repeatedly. She can be found at Red Wombat Studio, on twitter at @ursulav and probably more than a few other places.
