This week we welcome a record number of guests for a lively discussion of the state of short fiction. We discuss whether or not we’re currently in a “golden age” of short fiction; the welcome growth of multicultural voices; the economic realities of the short fiction market; and how authors can build careers in such a diverse and complex publishing environment.
Our guests are:
- Neil Clarke of Clarkesworld;
- Charles Coleman Finlay of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction;
- Irene Gallo of Tor.com; and
- Sheila Williams of Asimov’s Science Fiction.
We encourage you to support each of their fine publications. We’d also like to thank Charlie, Irene, Neil and Sheila for making the time to be part of the podcast.
