Karen Burnham and Graham Sleight in Conversation

At ICFA, I was lucky enough to be on the same continent as regular Locus Roundtable contributor, Graham Sleight. We took advantage of the opportunity to sit down and record a podcast without worrying about time zone coordination. We talk about: the classic sf space futures that never were, how the field has changed and evolved, space travel and global warming, and storyable futures. Below are some links from the discussion:

    You know, when I was editing this I thought of the ‘alternate history’ of Golden Age sf futures that never came true, and I wondered–will the Golden Age become the next Steampunk?

    I think that is a fascinating question. What sort of future would we “actually” need to have for that to become an attractive option? Hmmmm. . . .

    NYRSF, as I recall, has very little online. I wanted to get a copy of Darrell Schweitzer’s interview with D. G. Compton last year at Readercon and was told that most everything was still in paper back-issue form. Not sure if that has changed in the last several months.

    John – I could see that the article *used* to be online, but the links have broken. Graham used the magic of the wayback machine to get a link to an old copy — thanks Graham!

    But you’re right, most NYRSF content is sadly locked in dead-tree pages.
