It all seems so long ago, but yesterday morning Gary and I climbed in the pod to discuss the Crawford Awards, Shaun Tan’s Oscar nomination, genre terminology, and Margo Lanagan’s Yellowcake. We rambled, but kept it all to a reasonable length. As always, we hope you enjoy it.
And now, a non-series podcast. It’s Australia Day, and in recogition of this auspicious day Alex and Tansy from Galactic Suburbia and I chatted about Australian SF, its past present and future.
Amanda Palmer has been touring Down Under, her new album is out, and soon she’ll be playing here in sunny Perth. It also will be my 12th wedding anniversary this coming Monday, so we celebrate tonight.
Against a background of all of this happy news, Gary and I jumped into the pod to discuss slippage, why I hate the term ‘specfic’ and lots and lots of other stuff (including the happy news of our BSFA Award nomination and why Adam Roberts deserves chocolate, or at least a good stiff drink). We failed to keep it under an hour, but we tried. As always, we hope you enjoy it and that you’ll join us again next week!
Another busy Saturday morning, Friday evening, and time for another missive sent out to the interwebs. Gary and I jumped (well strolled) into the pod without any set plans on what to discuss and ended up talking about L. Ron Hubbard, movies, Fringe, the evils (or inconveniences) of PDFs, and lots of other stuff.
On a serious note, we also discussed Tehani Wessely’s After the Flood Queensland Flood ebook. Please do support it, and the Queensland flood victims, by donating $A10.00 and getting a copy of the ebook. Also, if you like the book give some thought to going back to Fablecroft’s site in April and buying the physical book too.
There was an air of unfinished business in the pod this morning as I got Gary K. Wolfe on the line from sunny Chicago and we discussed the Coode St Best of 2011 and many other things. It is very much our usual natter, and as always, we hope you find it of interest. And, oops, we ran long. Sorry!
