The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 22): Interview with Gregory Benford and George Zebrowski + How Events of the Past Decade Have Influenced Speculative Fiction

In episode 22 of the SF Signal Podcast, Patrick Hester asks SF Signal contributors:

Q: How have the events of the last decade shaped speculative fiction?

9/11, the war on terror, Katrina, the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan, the Economy, the shifting American political landscape, the Patriot Act, end of the Space Shuttle program, rejection of NASA’s budget & plans for future manned space exploration (I know I’m being all American in my highlights but you can fill in the blanks) – How have these and other events across the globe shaped genre fiction this decade and what will we see moving forward?

Later, Patrick Hester & John DeNardo sit down to talk with Gregory Benford & George Zebrowski, co-editors of Sentinels: In Honor of Arthur C. Clarke.
