In this week’s edition of SF Signal‘s popular MIND MELD series of discussions, the topic is “Fantasy novels besides Game of Thrones that would make an excellent weekly TV series“. There are some great mind’s melding in this one, including Robin Hobb, Martha Wells, David B. Coe, and many others, including yours truly. This is my first time participating in one of these mind meld’s and I think my recent enthusiasm over Game of Thrones is what helped get me on board.
In any event, there are some great suggestions from all the minds, and it makes for a fascinating read.
Episode 53 of the SF Signal podcast is now available online for your listening pleasure. This week’s installment includes a panel discussion on the 2011 Hugo Award for Best Novel finalists, and among the panelists involved in the discussion is yours truly. Take a listen to it, if you are so inclined, because it really is a good discussion and gives you a good feel for the great books on the final ballot this year.
Go over to SF Signal and check out Episode 37 of the SF Signal Podcast, which asks “Which 3 female authors of the last 100 years had the same impact on science fiction as “The Big Three”: Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke and Robert Heinlein?” There are a lot of smart people answering the question and I urge you to listen to the whole podcast because it is very interesting, even if you are only a casual fan of the genre.
Having said that, if you are in a rush, my part was recorded separately and I come in sometime during the last 5 minutes or so. Enjoy!
