The third episode in our new (but still continuing!) series of conversations is now live. There are still a few audio hitches that I’m trying to iron out, but all in all it’s ok. I did the stereo thing again – it seems to be a default setting – so I’ll work harder on getting you a good old fashioned mono recording next weekend. This time we discuss reviewing, books, and all sorts of other stuff. I did promise to mention any specific titles, but today’s chat is pretty general so there’s nothing specific to mention. Except, oops, The Wesleyan Anthology of Science Fiction, we do discuss that a bit. More next week!
In the second of our regular series of weekly podcasts Gary Wolfe and I discuss canon formation, Joanna Russ, and all sorts of other stuff. It’s kinda long. I accidentally messed up the first take so this actually is a complete re-recording. We hope you like it. Right now we plan to do this pretty much every week. Comments are welcome!
Here is the first full-length Coode Street podcast. Recorded just minutes ago, Gary and I discuss what it means to work and review for Locus, SF’s attraction to the ‘new’ in new weird, new space opera and new sword and sorcery, career pressure on short story writers, as well as books by China Mieville and others. We also mention some books we’re looking forward to. With a little luck we’ll podcast regularly (every week or two), so we hope you enjoy it. Also if there are any problems with the audio, my apologies. I’m still working this out.
