After last week’s experiments with audio ended up in a lost recording, this week we turned to more traditional methods to make sure we’d be bringing you a new episode this week. 

For about an hour, Gary an

No episode this week

With apologies, there’ll be no new episode this week. Gary and I sat down over the weekend and recorded a new episode where we discussed new books coming out, important writers of the 2000s and the new Hugo series award, but sadly we don’t have that episode.

We’d like to the Jo and Eugene for making time to talk to us. As always, we hope you enjoy the episode!
