Description
Steven Barnes discusses his novel, “Lion’s Blood.” He begins by explaining how he wanted to create an alternative history and switch ethnic roles throughout time. He talks about how he uses the Irish people as a good example of a group to be put into slavery because of their strong cultural adhesion through tough times. Martinson asks him to read a passage from his book about the conditions on slave ships and the turmoil that slaves had to go through. He ends the interview by discussing how he researched slavery for two years and went through 12 rough drafts before he was finished.
