Gary Wolfe and I are back by ourselves, guest-less, recording the podcast live from Chicago and Perth on a sunny Sunday morning. We spend some time discussing:
- The Quantum Thief by Hannu Rajaniemi
- how quantum mechanics has changed hard SF and whether hard SF really can continue to exist as we once knew it;
- Zendegi by Greg Egan;
- What I Didn’t See: Stories by Karen Joy Fowler;
- James Tiptree Jr, feminism, diversity and SF;
- what a great year 2010 is proving to be; and
- our first official “Book You Don’t Need to Read“.
This is our longest ever podcast, so our apologies for going on a bit.Â We hope you enjoy it as always and will see you next weekend!
