Interview: Gwyneth Jones

Our sister-site,, interviews Gwyneth Jones about her Nebula-nominated short story “The Tomb Wife”.

Gwyneth JonesFirst off, what’s the appeal of science fiction for you?

It’s a way of thinking: basically, I’m insatiably curious. What is sex for? What do scientific revolutions look like? Why do human societies develop the way they do? What would be the consequences of a change that seems desirable? Or undesirable? Reading and thinking about (or otherwise consuming and creating) science fiction seems to tell me more about the world around me than any other art form.
