‘River of Stars’ – Guy Gavriel Kay’s novel of an almost-China of the Song dynasty

riverofstarsGuy Gavriel Kay is a writer who takes a period of history and then makes a “quarter turn” towards fantasy to create the settings for his novels.  His latest, “River of Stars,” is set in a country that’s a lot like China during the Song dynasty….but not quite.

Hear this noted fantasy author explains how he does what he does tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors television show on state public affairs network TVW.  It airs at 7 and 10 p.m. tonight, at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow on Tacoma Public Television Station KBTC and at 11:30 a.m. Sundays on UWTV.

If you can’t wait, here’s the link. For more information, here’s the Seattle Times review.
