Interviews

April 2018, Justina Ireland
"In the wake of the Civil War, the United States is plagued by political upheaval...and zombies. The post-apocalyptic world of Dread Nation is filled with tough choices, especially for women of color like Jane McKeene. We asked author Justina Ireland to delve into this alternate history as well as what drives her "fearless and contrary" heroine.

What more do you need to know?

Also, I know a lot of folks will look at the YA label and cringe, but this book is brutal, and these lady pirates don't swoon or flutter or simper.

THEY JUST KICK ASS ALL UP AND DOWN THE SEA.

I hate Lovecraft, I liked this (and appreciated some of the Easter eggs in the story).

I really, really liked this, and I'm honestly only deducting a star from this because some of the worldbuilding felt haphazard and like an after thought. Still, a solid offering.

Fan-fucking-tastic.

I hate Beowulf. I really do. Maybe it's because of multiple forced readings, maybe because I always worried about the monster more than the awful castle people, but this isn't one of my favorite epic myths/poems/whatever.

How do you balance discussions of colonialism, the dual identity of being biracial, the stigmas around sex work, and metal health in a book filled with dark magic and lush descriptions?

I have no fucking idea, but Heidi Heilig definitely does.

“The darkness agrees with me. It asks me to release it, as loud as a roar and as quiet as a whisper. I remember what my sister said long ago: You must control the darkness. You can’t ever give in to it. But the shadows want to make me happy, and I deserve a little happiness”
Justina Ireland, Promise of Shadows

“See, the problem in this world ain’t sinners, or even the dead. It is men who will step on anyone who stands in the way of their pursuit of power.”
Justina Ireland, Dread Nation

“It’s a cruel, cruel world. And the people are the worst part.”
