Q INTERVIEW: Margaret Atwood

With her latest book, In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination, Margaret Atwood explores her own fascination with science fiction.

In her latest book of essays, Margaret Atwood explores her lifelong fascination with science fiction and what she calls speculative fiction.

In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination is both an appreciation of sci-fi by the author of The Blind Assassin and The Year of the Flood as well as an analysis of its literary significance.

In an interview with Jian Ghomeshi, host of CBC’s Q cultural affairs show, Atwood talks about different genres within SF and why she never wants her own speculative fiction to come true.
