  1. I’ve read a number of these, but spoiler warning taken.

    And hurrah, Crossing the Gulf is back!

  2. I am in the midst of reading Jagannath right now. It is quite the experience. A good one, but very different than much of the short fiction I normally read.

  3. Maybe you should discuss The Best of All Possible Worlds. I hear that’s pretty good.

    I’m glad to see this return… The lineup looks very interesting!

  5. Embarrassingly excited to see Stapledon on your list.

  6. Hey Karen and Karen.

    If you were to do The Gods Themselves in a Season 3 of the podcast, I think that would be a swell idea. Especially what you think of the middle section.
