My interview on The Skiffy and Fanty Show is now online. The episode was originally recorded at Loncon 3 back on August 15th, 2014. It’s a little noisy because we were standing near the runway of London City Airport, but the plane spotter geek in me was up to the challenge (my hosts found me “informative and fascinating”, at least in this regard). A big thank you to Shaun Duke, Paul Weimer and Julia Rios for a truly fun late summer chat in London. Enjoy the episode!
I will be having a one-on-one conversation with Jeff Beeler about Carbide Tipped Pens at GenreCon 2015 this Saturday, May 2nd at 1:00pm. We will be talking about the origin and creation of this new anthology of hard science fiction, how Ben Bova and I came up with the idea, found a publisher and the authors, obtained the stories, and put them together to create the collection. GenreCon will be held at the Sarnia Public Library, located at 124 Christina Street South in Sarnia, Ontario. Here is my full programming schedule:
