Tomorrow Through the Past: Jo Walton and Ada Palmer in Conversation, by Ada Palmer and Jo Walton (8/29/16)
It's interesting to me that people instantly try to categorize this future into "utopia" or "dystopia" because we don't really have a category for "pretty good future with some flaws."

Fractal History: An Interview with Jo Walton, by Liz Bourke (1/26/15)

"Strife Without Bitterness": Jo Walton's The Prize in the Game, by Christopher Cobb (5/26/03)
