Gary and I travelled to Reno, Nevada to attend Renovation, the World Science Fiction Convention for 2011.  Over the weekend we recorded a handful of podcasts with friends, old and new, that we see to seldom. We'll be publishing these over the coming month.  The first in the series is with Jo Walton, author of Among Others and Farthing, where we discussed that novel, science fiction, her Hugo blogging and many other things. As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast.

    Just a note after belatedly catching up with the episode. Count me in as one of the Select Few who read Keith Roberts’ The White Boat - in the German translation, Das Boot des Schicksals (The Boat of Fate), Schroeder, 1980. If memory serves, there is a slight fantastic element in there - the kind of token genre authors seems to smuggle into otherwise straight historical books as a secret signature: a prophetic dream. Cue the usual discussion if this actually counts as fantastic, because in the context of the depicted period, it should not.
