It was a bright and sunny morning - the annual excoriation of the masses here in Perth, and a particularly vicious one - so Gary and I fired up Skype and had a long chat about the Nebula Awards, how e-readers are impacting on the management of the reviewing cycle, the work of Peter S. Beagle and some other stuff. As always, we hope you enjoy it!
And it's another weekend. This morning Garth Nix, bestselling author of the 'Keys to the Kingdom' and 'Old Kingdom' series, among many wonderful novels, joined Gary and I in the pod to discuss what 'young adult' means, the current troubles with bookselling and book publishing, ebooks, his forthcoming novels Troubletwisters (with Sean Williams) and A Confusion of Princes and lots more stuff in a special 'Pink Drinks' edition of The Coode Street Podcast. Enjoy!
That’s better! Technical difficulties behind us, Gary and a slightly hungover I jumped into the pod to discuss Carol Emshwiller, the right time to publish a book, optimistic SF, the death of SF and all sorts of other stuff. We hope you enjoy it, as always!
