    Cool to see some of those guys discussing stuff.  Steel Remains was interesting, but I really hope Morgan steers his way back to the science fiction side of things. 

    And… Alex Bell.   Just thought I’d mention her :)

    Ha ha, best sf bar conversation of the year. Richard Morgan seems like a perfectly nice and witty chap, but I’ve read almost all his books and let me tell you, that man scares me.

    I LOVE this. Yes, I will steal it too. How fun to see some of my favorite authors on video. 

  4. Weird, that was me who made the “anonymous” post. Usually my name shows up. 

  5. I can understand that the humorous topsy-turvy perspectives in this video meant that each group had to be “guided” in some way (the women to explosions, the men to feelings), but I still question why they are sitting separately? It’s like two different tribes separated by an invisible wall. That, to me, is the most interesting — and disturbing — thing about the video. (And they’re all from the same publishing house, you say?) Personally, I like my men interactive … and within arm’s reach!
