After much re-scheduling, this weekend authors, editors, and Small Beer supremos Gavin Grant and Kelly Link join Gary and I in the Waldorf Room to discuss publishing, science fiction and, well, stuff. As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast!
So, I’m trying to work out where I’m at, two years into the 2010s. Back in 2002 I was a parent of two very young children, three years married, was a new homeowner, working a day job that I enjoyed and tinkering around with working at Locus. Ten years later I have two near teenage daughters, am thirteen years married, am living in the same house which now needs maintenance, have been acting in a job for 18 months that I don’t enjoy but feel I can’t escape, have been reviews editor at Locus for a decade, have edited over 50 books in one capacity or another, have been podcasting for two years, and am pretty tired out and stressed.
I’ve touched on this before, but I’m not really listening to much new music, not getting to do things I enjoy, and am even struggling to focus on reading because of my commitments. I know I need to change, but I can’t work out how I want to/need to restructure what I do to make things work out.
