The Dispatch Monthly Mailbag with Harvest Prude

Dear Dispatch Members, 

Thank you all for your thoughtful questions for Harvest in our first ever Monthly Mailbag. We heard from so many of you it was impossible to answer all of the questions. But Harvest did her best to answer what she could while still writing and reporting for The Dispatch. Read her answers below, and stay tuned to see who will be on the docket for next month. 

Paul Joseph: Your top 10 fave sci-fi/fantasy books? And also how you were given such a cool name? 

I’m going to cheat and put my 10 favorite books in general, in no particular order: Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov, Diana Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle, Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game and Ender’s Shadow, Richard Adams’ Watership Down, J.R.R. Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings trilogy (further cheating by counting this as one), Italo Calvino’s If On a Winter’s Night a Traveler, Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre, and more recently, Naomi Novik’s Uprooted.
