Well, Gary Wolfe and I got on Skype this morning with no real idea about what we might discuss, other than a passing desire not to retread old grown. After a bit of waffling, we got down to serious waffling and spent some time discussing:
- William Gibson’s Zero History and what makes a book that isn’t SF feel like SF. This follows-on from comments by Alex, Alisa and Tansy on the most recent Galactic Suburbia podcast
- why SF loves novellas
- the influence of Charles N. Brown on science fiction, us and the podcast;
- our second official “Book You Don’t Need to Read”; and
- sundry other stuff.
In amongst it all I spend some time recommending Galactic Suburbia (go listen!) and we sort of natter for a good while. We hope you enjoy it as always and will see you next weekend!
