A Podcast on the Women in SF (and other things)

Last night, I took 90 minutes to talk with Gary Wolfe and Jonathan Strahan on the Coode Street Podcast about my various projects, including indie publishing, the Retrieval Artist, and the women in science fiction material. Most of the time, though, we discussed the various women in science fiction projects, how hard it is to edit anthologies (logistically), and how rewarding it can be as well. The podcast itself ended up being about 60 minutes of the discussion. It was fun and fascinating, at least from my point of view. Head on over and have a listen.

    I listened to it earlier today and it was very interesting. You sold me on the volume you’re editing and now I’m very much looking forward to it

    Kris, Just listened to the awesome podcast and am overwhelmed. I’m a 59-year old woman who had her first science fiction story published earlier this year in an anthology (STORIES FROM THE WORLD OF TOMORROW, ed. by Andrew MacRae, Darkhouse Books). I didn’t realize it, but I guess I’ve written a “hearth and home” story. 🙂

    I grew up reading male authors (Bradbury, Asimov, Wells, etc.) and always thought that I couldn’t write science fiction. I wish I’d found some of these female authors back then.

    I have a huge reading list now, new authors and stories to track down and am anxiously awaiting the new book.

      Congrats on the sale, Bobbi! Glad you have a new reading list. 🙂 You’ll have lots of fun.

        Thanks, Kris! I spent the night making a loooong reading list and am heading to the library today (and spent quite a lot of time on Amazon). Surprisingly, my small town library does have quite a few SF books written by women.

        I’ve always been put off by writing SF because I felt it all had to be “hard science” but now that I see what else is out there, I know that’s not true.
