For the past few days, we've been discussing Paolo Bacigalupi's novel The Windup Girl in our io9 book club meeting. Now you can ask Paolo about the book! He'll be joining us here in comments tomorrow at 12 PST.


Please reserve the comments section here for specific questions to Paolo - you can continue debating and reviewing and discussing over in the io9 book club thread. He'll join us tomorrow at noon PST and spend about an hour answering questions. Go ahead and post your questions between now and tomorrow noon, and he'll get to as many as he can.

Remember that Paolo is an actual human, so be polite.


Dr Emilio Lizardo

Thanks for joining us Mr. Bacigalupi. I really enjoyed the book. I've put your collection "Pump Six" on my list to read.

I noted about four or five ways this world you've created could end - plague (man made or natural) starvation, rising sea levels or being outcompeted by an artificial organism like windups that could breed. Was this intentional? Are you trying to scare us?

Oh, and any chance "Pump Six" will be released in paperback?
