On Oddcast #67, the Liars Club interviews Science Fiction Grand Master Joe Haldeman and his wife Gay Haldeman about Joe’s seminal SF novel The Forever War, which won both the Nebula Award and Hugo Award, and has been in print continuously since 1974; about landing in an MFA program in Iowa; and about writing fiction while overly caffeinated. It’s a hilarious and informative dialogue all the way.
Living Grand Master of Science Fiction (and Nebula Award winning author) Samuel R. Delany joins Oddcast this week to talk about his latest novel The Atheist in the Attic, about a meeting between philosophers Leibniz and Spinoza set during a frightening period in the history of the Netherlands. Along the way he reveals how one early major work of his was lost forever, and also how he came to be called “Chip”.
This week on the Oddcast, Nebula-award-winning science fiction author James Patrick Kelly talks to us about the rewards of writing short stories, of braided novels and collaborations, and of the creative method by which he’s brought out his latest novel, Mother Go, through Audible.
