Episode 133: On Locus, recommended reading, Neptune’s Brood and more

This week the Coode Street team headed back to the Waldorf Room high in the Coode Street Motel Six to discuss the annual Locus Year in Review issue, the publishing industry, and other matters.  We also briefly discuss two forthcoming novels, Guy Gavriel Kay’s River of Stars and Charles Stross’s Neptune’s Brood.

The Locus Recommended Reading List is online, as is the annual Locus Poll and a list of links to recommended short fiction.  As discussed during the episode, both Gary Wolfe and Jonathan Strahan work for Locus and were actively involved in compiling the recommended reading list.  You can subscribe to Locus here. The Year in Review issue is available as the start of a subscription or as a stand-alone issue.

As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast!

  1. I’d love it if Jonathan McCalmont or a critic in similar vein (John Ginsburg Stevens of my very own SF Signal for instance) came on to discuss SF criticism.

  2. I was glad to hear fond memories of the SFF Masterclass which Gary taught. I’d recommend the experience to anyone thinking of attending this year.
