INTERVIEWS

EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing authors joined us in October for a BTR show interview, but we didn’t get nearly enough time to really speak with Lynda Williams. We are making that up to you now.


Lynda Williams

lives in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada where she is hard at work completing the 10 Book Science Fiction epic The Okal Rel Saga. Okal Rel stands for swords-in-space as one manifestation of a belief system designed to balance the sustainability of life in the universe with personal ambitions, good and evil. Lynda’s publications also include a growing list of Okal Rel Universe related books published by Windstorm Creative. Her latest short fiction, “The Harpy”, based on a Robert Service poem, appears in Mythspring (2006) edited by Julie E. Czerneda. Born in Prince George, British Columbia, Lynda holds three post secondary degrees and is pursuing an MA in English, part time, with a special interest in Canadian Science Fiction. She is also a book editor for ScrollPress, operated by Dr. Dee Horne, and chair of UNBC Press, a small university press.
