Podcasts and Stories

My most recent StarShipSofa "Looking Back on Genre History" segment, the first of a two-parter that discusses the history of the 2012 "doomsday" phenomenon, is now available in the latest episode of the podcast. 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.)

Speaking of StarShipSofa, in two days StarShipSofa Stories Volume 3 debuts. This includes my essay "Top Ten 'Must Read' Time Travel Works."
