Live from the Locus/Twelfth Planet Press in the World Fantasy Convention 2010 dealer’s room, Gary and I chat with Alisa, Karen and Francesca about World Fantasy, women at conventions, and all sorts of other stuff. We ramble. The sound quality may be affected by the venue, along with random background announcements, but we hope you like it!
And we’re back! It’s Columbus, it’s World Fantasy and Gary and I recorded a short podcast today, face to face for the first time. More to come!
The countdown to Columbus and World Fantasy is one. Less than two weeks till I get there, and with deadlines bearing down Gary and I fired up Skype and discussed the World Fantasy Awards, mortality, the AUS/USD exchange rate, The Hobbit getting the green light, and, in response to a follow-up question in comments, even more on novellas. We hope you enjoy.
On a related note, I’ll be travelling next weekend so we’re not sure if we’ll get a podcast recording session, but we will make every effort to do so. And if we don’t, we’ll make up for it in Columbus!
And we’re at it again. Taking a question from the blog comments, Gary sat down in Chicago on a Friday evening with a glass of red wine and I sat down on a Saturday morning with a cup of coffee, and we discussed the top anthologies and collections of the past 20 years. As usual, we didn’t really discuss it properly, but we did wander far and wide from there.
Young adult science fiction, gender, race, Scott Westerfeld’s Behemoth, the very sad passing of Ralph Vicinanza, Australian SF compared to SF from the rest of the world: these and other things were discussed when Gary and I fired up podcast #20 this morning. It seemed to go pretty well. We hope you enjoy it!
