Join co-hosts Adrian M. Gibson and M.J. Kuhn as they chat with author Kritika H. Rao about her debut novel The Surviving Sky, her South Asian heritage and upbringing, the fluidity of genres, Hinduism and philosophy, writing a married couple, incorporating mystery and fast pacing into her book, humanity's connection with nature, thrillers, survival, Jurassic Park and much more.

NOTE: This is part one of a two-part chat with Kritika. Stayed tuned next week for her mini-masterclass on Science in Fantasy. Also, apologies for some static/audio issues with Kritika's recording.
