I got my bonus Locus Magazine last week (the freebie included with a new subscription). It was the August 2003 issue which featured several very interesting articles on the so-called “New Space Opera”. It included interviews with Alastair Reynolds and Charles Stross (who looks suspiciously like Peter Jackson. Seriously…have you ever seen the two of them together?). I though it might make a worthy post, even 15 months after the fact, and then I saw that earlier today Coalescent posted a good summary of the article that included 5 reviews of space opera books/movie. Now excuse me while I go try to think of something insightful to add.
