Worldcon approaches! We take a break from the excitement to get on the horn with Hugo winner/nominee Neil Clarke, editor of Clarkesworld magazine. He gives us insight into the editorial process and his other projects, including Forever magazine and the Best Science Fiction of the Year anthologies.
Where is publishing headed? What hot new subgenres will burn up the bestseller charts? As with Hollywood, if anyone knew the answer, there would be no duds and bombs. But what harm in speculation? The Narrators offer their hopes and guesses for the Next Big Things in books and entertainment.
Which books and authors can we read over and over? Who has influenced us in our own writing? Join us for a freeform discussion of the books, films, shows and comics that have helped us get from there to here.
Surprise! It’s our 100th episode! Yes, we know, it may not look like it due to our confusing numbering scheme, which ends now! Celebrate with us as we discuss relationships in fiction, primarily platonic and unlikely friendships that have inspired us in reading and writing. Champagne in the lobby.
