It’s Veronica’s last episode before her maternity leave! OH MY. And we have some fun, including wrapping up our thoughts on Howl’s Moving Castle.
Tom and Veronica draw the lines on whether they favor Alix E. Harrow or Tamsyn Muir (because they are both awesome). Tom has some new new writing coming out, and we have our first impressions of Howl’s Moving Castle and why we missed out on it in our own childhoods.
How to make The Watch series not feel so bad maybe? Also, some great lists of top fantasy and sci-fi and a few more award winners. Plus, we kick off the November pick and wrap up Finder By Suzanne Palmer.
Sandman and Lord of the Rings go back intro production, why publishers shouldn’t fear library eBooks, and a call for Sword and Laser book remembering help!
A couple of great series becoming books and video games. A couple of great folks sadly passed away. And our final thoughts on Ten Thousand Doors of January, and our FIRST thoughts on the October Pick, Finder.
Dune! Dune looks so good! Yay Dune! Save us! Help us escape! Actually, we’re pretty good on that front as Ten Thousand Doors of January is helping us all escape. And we’re also pretty bulllish on the team putting together a TV adaptation of Three-Body problem for Netflix. EVERYTHING IS GREAT!
We try to explain Audible’s new plans, decide if Pinocchio is fantasy (especially if Mussolini is involved), and wrap-up our thoughts on Elysium by Jennifer Marie Brissett.
The Hugos are here! And we’ve read a bunch of them. Also, some thoughts on what should or should not be in the genre canon. Should there even be a canon? Or should we shoot it out of a cannon? Also our early, non-spoilery thoughts on Elysium.
We chat with Dennis E. Taylor about the Bobiverse, and what we can expect when we return to it in the new book Heaven’s River.
In this episode, it’s tricky to put the World in WorldCon, alternate history first contact, and Tom is really excited about next month’s pick. Plus, we wrap up our ultimately satisfying read of Black Leopard, Red Wolf.
