Quick Questions (More SF&F Podcast Blogging)

September 5, 2012

When I asked for suggestions for interview subjects for the NBinSFF podcast, Alastair Reynolds was high on the list (albeit mostly over email channels). Well, he agreed, and I’m scheduled to interview him  tomorrow. The focus is Blue Remembered Earth. If anyone has suggestions for questions or themes, let me know. Also, this seems as good a time as any to ask for more suggestions for interview subjects.

A few additional items:

  1. Interesting thing I’ve learned so far: the PR people at Tor? Aggressive. Very aggressive. Many of the other major SF&F publishing houses? Not so much. 
  2. The “New Books in Science Fiction and Fantasy” has a very lonely Facebook page. You should go “like” it.
  3. Because I believe in saturation linking, I should note that the podcast on The Night Sessions includes discussion of themes close to many of our readers’ hearts, including religion and secularism, terrorism, and whether or not we should be optimistic about the future. 
  4. Comments at NBN are moderated. Very slowly.
