SF Crossing the Gulf (Episode 10): Jagannath by Karin Tidbeck

In this episode of SF Crossing the Gulf, we enthuse about Jagannath, the award-winning collection from Karin Tidbeck.

We highly recommend this collection, an exemplar of the New Weird (although we never use that term in the podcast). Fantasy, fae, sf, and steampunk all collide in this amazing new collection.

  1. Wonderful! I’ll be bookmarking this for when I’m finished with the collection.

    Wow–thanks for this great conversation! Yes, we specifically arranged the collection to go more or less from least weird to most weird, but with some of the somewhat weird stuff upfront so the later material wouldn’t seem too different in terms of tone and approach.

  3. I’ve read a couple of anthologies this year that suffered from poor arrangement, so I’m appreciating the thoughtfulness even more right now. Thanks Jeff!

      Karen–I so enjoyed this podcast. Especially the Arvid Pekon bit, which was just so much fun.

  4. I would like to thank you both for introducing to me to the genre. I look forward to each podcast. Also, the free audiobook of The Machine Stops by EM Forster can be heard at http://archive.org/details/machine_stops_librivox.

  5. the file associated for download is episode 9….not the episode 10 you wanted to have people download….can anyone help get this fixed….or maybe finally add this podcast to itunes so more of us can enjoy the discussion away from our computer:)
    Thanks,
    TJ

    Great podcast! Went back and re-read several of the stories with new insight.

    BTW, when is your book on Greg Egan’s work going to be published?

    • Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! The Egan book has been through peer review, and I’m handing in the revisions next month. I don’t think a publishing date has been set yet, but you can be sure I’ll let folks know when it is!
