The worlds of science and magic go head-to-head in Delfy Hall's Nautilus Gold Award-winning debut novel The Warlock and the Wolf. Setting her story in the Dutch Golden Age, the Kentucky author tracks a scientist in training with a close kinship with animals as she unravels questions about her parents' death.

In this interview, Hall discusses the genesis of the book, how animals figure prominently in her world, and why you don't want electricity in your fantasy novel.
