Fictitious Podcast Interview with Author Tade Thompson
Tade Thompson is the author of Rosewater, a John W. Campbell Award finalist and winner of the 2017 Nommo Awards for African speculative fiction, as well as The Murders of Molly Southbourne. Born in London to Yoruba parents, he lives and works on the south coast of England as an emergency room psychiatrist.
Rosewater is a town on the edge. A community formed around the edges of a mysterious alien biodome, its residents comprise the hopeful, the hungry and the helpless – people eager for a glimpse inside the dome or a taste of its rumored healing powers.
Kaaro is a government agent with a criminal past. He has seen inside the biodome, and doesn’t care to again — but when something begins killing off others like himself, Kaaro must defy his masters to search for an answer, facing his dark history and coming to a realization about a horrifying future.
