SF Crossing the Gulf (Episode 05): Discussion of Greg Egan’s “The Plank Dive” and Others

This is THE Greg Egan podcast. In this episode we cover Egan’s stories “The Planck Dive,” “Glory,” “Singleton,” “Oracle,” and “Oceanic.” We talk about Egan’s approach to science and art, quantum mechanics, history, biography, religion, sexuality, and much else, putting these works into the context of all his other fiction and what little is known about his life experiences. In the process, Karen Burnham realizes that she will need to considerably re-write the introduction to the book on Egan’s work that she is currently finalizing.

Next episode we’ll be talking about the 1998 Clarke Award-winning novel The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell.

  1. Planck — the German physicist Max Planck — is spelled with a “c”.

    The link for “Oceanic” is broken, because the URL is given twice.
