As we approach the October Country, Jonathan and Gary start this weekâ€™s podcast discussing Garyâ€™s new two-volume set from the Library of America,Â American Science Fiction: Eight Classic Novels of the 1960sÂ (which you can order right now) and end with discussing the challenges of editing Jonathanâ€™s new best science fiction of the year anthology series from Saga Press.
Itâ€™s not all shameless self-promotion, though, since in between we talk about how SF changed from the 1950s to the 1960s, whether there is more high-quality SF published now than ever before, and how new writers face different challenges from those of earlier generations in establishing a career and a distinctive profile in todayâ€™s complicated markets.
All in all, a pretty full hour. As always, we hope you enjoy the episode and we’ll back soon (next week!) with another episode!
