In episode 256 of the SF Signal Podcast Patrick Hester invites Delilah S. Dawson, Jeff Patterson, and Jay Garmon to discuss:

Rebooting Star Wars

In comics, television and movies, ‘reboots’ are fairly common place. But what about in books? Can you think of a beloved book or series of books that was rebooted either by the original author or a new author? And was it successful?

Of course, this is leading into a discussion of the Star Wars reboot within books to bring it inline with the new movies. Have we ever seen a mass dumping of books the way the folks behind Star Wars are dumping the expanded universe?

In episode 254 of the SF Signal Podcast Patrick Hester brings together Gail Carriger, Jay Garmon, Derek Austin Johnson, and Michael R. Underwood to discuss:

Does the average book buyer/reader care about the Hachette v Amazon battle? SHOULD they care and why?

The average book buyer probably doesn’t know there’s a battle going on, so WHY should they care? WHY should they not? Is this whole thing contained within the SF&F community and, therefore, a non-issue for most people? Hachette is a multi-billion dollar company being portrayed as the innocent underdog – why? Is that accurate? Is there anyone beyond authors who will truly be hurt by all of this? What does all of this mean for the average reader going forward? What does all of this mean for authors going forward? What about independent publishing? Will people be people an buy their books wherever they want no matter what happens here?

This is also only the first of several battles to come. The publishers have to renegotiate with Amazon one by one… so will we be seeing this every couple months/years forever?

Lastly – what about the new Kindle Unlimited? Do we care? Is it good, bad, indifferent?

The Best Podcast Fiction of All Time (#21 – #30)

This is my third installment of my Best Podcast Fiction of All Time List, covering #21-30.

Please comment, follow along, share this list with your friends.
