Michael asked Ann Leckie:

What authors/books inspired you to write in the science fiction genre?

Ann Leckie I've been reading science fiction since I was quite young, almost since I could first read. So when I first developed an ambition to write, it was more or less a natural thing to write science fiction. So a complete answer to your question would be a list of every science fiction author or book that I read as a child or a teen, or while I was in college, and that would be a difficult list to make--it would be long, and I'd certainly forget a lot of titles.
