Episode 199: Loncon, Hugos and the future of SF

And we’re back! After traveling for far too long and having had a wonderful time in London at what may have been the biggest and best WorldCon ever, our intrepid commentators are back on Coode St pondering (at length, alas!) what made Loncon a success, the Hugo Awards results, and the future and purpose of SF (of course!).

As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast. Next week: Episode 200!!!!

With Loncon3, the largest WorldCon in history disappearing into the rear-view mirror, convention guest of honour John Clute joins Gary and Jonathan on the podcast to discuss fantastika, the mission of science fiction, theĀ SF Encyclopedia and much more.

In the run-up to episode 200, recorded live in London, we’ll probably have a wrap-up episode shortly. Till then, our thanks to John for joining us and, as always, we hope you enjoy the podcast!

Episode 197: Readercon, the World Fantasy Awards and more

With our intrepid hosts preparing to head off to Europe for a sojourn in France before attending WorldCon in London (the biggest Worldcon ever!!), it seems like everything is happening in the gap between now and then. To fill the moments, a new episode(!) where Gary’s time at Readercon, the Shirley Jackson Awards, the World Fantasy Awards and more (not much more) are discussed.

As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast.
