The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 006): Interview with Amelia Beamer

In the sixth episode of the SF Signal podcast, Patrick Hester is joined by birthday boy Jeff Patterson, John Anealio, and Andrew Liptak to discuss genres in science fiction and fantasy; how is a genre defined, where does a book fit in – what makes The Wind Up Girl science fiction? Our panel gives us their answers and we want yours as well – leave comments!

Later, Patrick Hester sits down with Amelia Beamer, editor, reviewer, and photographer for Locus: The Magazine of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Field and author of The Loving Dead to discuss zombies, conventions, photography, Clarion, writing & the publishing industry.

  1. How can you have a panel with such a limited experience with Sir Terry Pratchett. Sigh. I understand how you could read his first three Discworld novels and be “Well, it was okay, but not great.” But there are soooo many more that change settings, characters, everything. At the very least someone should have mentioned reading Good Omens. His Discworld novels are all Fantasy but they are also political satires, science fiction, comedies, mysteries, social comentaries, etc. He more so than any author transcends genres.

    Sorry for the rant.

    Sir Terry Pratchett is one of my favorites and with his deteriating condition I am rather protective of him.

     

    Love the show, and the site. Got referred to it by Beware the Hairy Mango, and now I’m hooked.

     

    Thank you.
