Last weekend Gary and I were in the slightly surreal space station environment of the Atlantis Casino in Reno, Nevada for the World Science Fiction Convention, where we recorded upcoming podcasts with Ian McDonald, Alastair Reynolds, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Jo Walton. This weekend we're home and discuss the con (briefly), vow to avoid discussing awards too much, look at the work of Caitlin R. Kiernan and discuss the use of language in SF. As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast.
It looked, for a moment, that technical difficulties would prevent us getting this final pre-WorldCon podcast out to you, but we persevered, recording this one twice. We discussed many things, including changing concepts of the field, books that we're reading and so on. We'll be at WorldCon and look forward to meeting as many of you there as possible. We'll also be recording, and hope to get something online from there (though it's possible we might not). Hopefully we'll see you here next week. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the podcast.
With WorldCon bearing down on us like a freight train, there is packing to be done, panel preparation to be considered, and travel details to be finalised. Despite all of that, Gary and I found a moment to record the latest episode. As always, we hope you enjoy it!
