3 Comments on The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 152): Special Worldcon Live Panel with James Enge, Howard Andrew Jones and John ONeill

  1. Really good conversation and panel. I would have loved to have been in the audience for this one, especially when the subject of reviews came up. 😉

  2. A late comment – this podcast inspired me to invest in HAJ’s Desert of Souls & Saladin Ahmed’s Throne of the Crescent Moon. Definitely looking forward to getting immersed in these. Cheers, all!

  3. Glad you guys enjoyed the conversation (and thanks to Patrick for recording and posting!)

    Paul — there was no audience for this, really. It was recorded in Patrick’s hotel room, and just before we began, he gave a hilarious monologue about discovering Mountain Dew in Canada has no caffeine. Rich Horton, Andrew Zimmerman Jones, and Andrew’s wife were hanging out with us, and that’s the extent of the group.

    Steven — glad to hear you’ve discovered Howard’s novels! I’m sure you’ll enjoy them. He also has a collection of his BLACK GATE stories (from BG and other places), THE WATERS OF ETERNITY.
