My most recent StarShipSofa "Looking Back on Genre History" segment, which discusses the literary history that informs the TV series Fringe and previews Fringe Science: Parallel Universes, White Tulips and Mad Scientists, is now available. You can download it or listen to it here. If you listen, I hope you enjoy. (A full list of my past podcast segments, with links, is available here.)
And speaking of Fringe Science: Parallel Universes, White Tulips and Mad Scientists, that book will be on bookshelves next week. My essay "In Search of Fringe's Literary Ancestors" includes sections on Fringe as the New Frankenstein; Edgar Allan Poe, Ratiocination, and Genre; Literary Science Fiction Investigators; Televised Science Fiction Investigators; and H.P. Lovecraft's Influence on Fringe.
I'll leave you with this parting thought:
