The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 001): Interview with Lou Anders

In this inaugural episode of The SF Signal Podcast, Patrick Hester, John DeNardo, JP Frantz, John Anealio and Karen Burnham discuss the new exclusivity deal between Kindle and a host of authors represented by Literary Agent Andrew Wylie and how this could affect eBook sales and purchases of genre titles if similar deals become the norm.

Later, John DeNardo and JP Frantz, sit down with Lou Anders, editorial Director of Pyr books, to chat about his recent projects and anthologies.

Enjoy! (And thanks to Trent Ditto for the logo work. Thanks, Trent!)

  1. Glad to see this topic getting some discussion.  Wish you all had talked more about the fact that these are backlist titles, and this is in fact a tug of war between authors and publishers over who owns the rights to publish the backlist in ebook form.

    Interesting to hear the behind-the-scenes stuff from Lou about the anthologies.  It’s nice to see someone creating another outlet for short fiction.

     

     

     

     

  2. Tam – we’re still working on getting the feed working properly.  We can’t seem to get it to exclude the regular posts.

  3. Mini mind-meld was good. Lou Anders interview was better, except for my wallet. Ended up going out that day and buying “Ghosts of Manhattan”, “Masked” and a couple of other titles mentioned. So many books, so little time, so many ex-lovers to bury…

  4. Good opening salvo.

    I enjoyed the regulars/irregulars banter and analysis, which was well timed. I also gleaned some good information from your guest from Pyr– and what cool titles!

    Thanks.
