Episode 22: Live with Gary K. Wolfe!

The countdown to Columbus and World Fantasy is one. Less than two weeks till I get there, and with deadlines bearing down Gary and I fired up Skype and discussed the World Fantasy Awards, mortality, the AUS/USD exchange rate, The Hobbit getting the green light, and, in response to a follow-up question in comments, even more on novellas.  We hope you enjoy.

On a related note, I’ll be travelling next weekend so we’re not sure if we’ll get a podcast recording session, but we will make every effort to do so. And if we don’t, we’ll make up for it in Columbus!

  1. Another suggested topic….
    Will Iain M. Banks ever win a major award for a Culture novel ?

    Thanks for the novella talk. I agree with Mr Wolfe, novellas are getting more difficult to
    find on the bookstore shelf. Although, I did recently find the Hugo Showcase 2010 from Prime Books. The first such collection of Hugo winners in 16 years. Nice to see !
    I also looked at the Novella award winners (Hugo,Nebula,Locus, Asimov’s, and Analog) of the last two decades and also found very few in print.
    The last major collection I could find was published in 1980 “The Arbor House Treasury of Great Science Fiction Short Novels” Ed Silverberg & Greenberg
    If a publisher took the pick of the litter of the recent (last twenty years) novella award winners and put together a similar edition I’d be the first in line to pick up a copy.

    By the way – I’d say Banks is long overdue for his Hugo, Locus, and Nebula awards.
