I know what you’re asking yourself: Sure, not reading Daryl’s blog posts is great, but what if you also don’t want to listen to Daryl?
I’m here for you. My suggestion? Download two podcast interviews with me, then turn the volume down — way down. Perhaps you’d simply like a faint whine to accompany you while you fold clothes. Or a low murmur to lull you sleep. I’m great for putting people to sleep. Well, unless I get to bed before you, in which case my snoring kicks in, and then no one gets to sleep. I’m talking CIA-banned, Geneva-convention-breaking, Abu Ghraib-quality snoring.
But I digress. On to the podcasts.
SF Signal Episode 27. I sat down with SF critic and NASA physicist Karen Burnham to talk about short stories, novels, and everything in between, while Pod-Master Patrick Hester chimed in. And by “sat down” I mean we were all at our respective computers, Skyping away. I fear that by the end of the interview we were finding ourselves entirely too amusing, but I had a blast.
Adventures in Sci-Fi Publishing Episode 114 . Moses Siregar and I actually sat down to talk. The interview was recorded last October, when we were at World Fantasy Con in Columbus, OH. As Moses wolfed down Chinese noodles and I sipped coffee, we once again had entirely too much fun. As the ASFP website describes it, we discussed “the lack of religion in Middle Earth (no touched-by-Gandalf jokes please), writing short stories, novels, and comics, genre-blending, strangeness, and humor in prose.”
