  1. Lovely to see a new podcast show up from the Mullahs. Frankly, I don’t care what the topic is – it’s always an interesting conversation. Re: the discussion about different types of readers – I have always considered myself a science fiction reader, but I enjoy fantasy as well, and a look back through the books I’ve read in the past few years shows a pretty good balance between the two. I’ve read both Under My Hat and Edge of Infinity, and enjoyed them both equally.

Instead of a broad, unified pangaea of genre, we have islets of subgenres, some of which are pretty far from each other–like Jonathan’s example of the Beagle and the McAuley being in the year’s best.
