This weekend in San Antonio, Texas theÂ 71st World Science Fiction ConventionÂ is in full swing. Parties are being held, discussions had, panels attended and science fiction celebrated. In amongst it all,Â Ellen DatlowÂ is being toasted as Guest of Honour, a richly deserved recognition of the amazing contribution this nine-time World Fantasy and five time Hugo Award winner has made to the science fiction and fantasy field.
As a run-up to the weekend, Gary and Jonathan sat down with Ellen to discuss editing, anthologies, her career, and many other things in a frank conversation. The connection to Ellen’s ManhattanÂ pied-Ã -terreÂ was erratic, so much editing was necessary. The sound quality is fine, but there are one or two spots where the editing may be noticeable. Our apologies for that, and our sincere thanks to Ellen for being part of the podcast.
Next week, most likely, a podcast from WorldCon. Till then, we hope you enjoy the episode.
