The Three Hoarsemen (Episode 13): Overlooked SF & Fantasy with Guest Sarah Chorn

Flying so close to the Sun their duct tape and bailing wire melts and their headphones explode, John E. O. Stevens, Fred Kiesche and Jeff Patterson return this month for our lucky thirteenth episode! Not only have we seamlessly spliced together two different recording sessions (thanks to said duct tape and bailing wire), but we are joined by one of SF Signal’s most prolific irregulars Sarah Chorn as we spelunk the depths of the genre to discuss overlooked works of fantasy and science fiction that deserve more attention.

If your wallet survives that list, we once again bring you a list of books (and other things) that we’ve consumed since last month that may finally tumble Mount ToBeRead down upon your heads!

  1. The Hum and the Shiver by Alex Bledsoe
  2. Tea with the Black Dragon by R. A. MacAvoy
  3. Curse of the Mistwraith by Janny Wurts
  1. Radix by A. A. Attanasio
  2. Wizard of the Pigeons by Megan Lindholm
  3. Age of Ultron (Marvel)
  1. Watchstar by Pamela Sargent
  2. Of Blood and Honey by Stina Leicht
  3. Lud-in-the-Mist by Hope Mirrlees

10 Comments on The Three Hoarsemen (Episode 13): Overlooked SF & Fantasy with Guest Sarah Chorn

  1. -I’ve tried for years to find a copy of WIZARD OF THE PIGEONS in used book shops. I can’t understand why one of Hobb’s US publishers haven’t reprinted her Lindholm novels with how popular she is.

    -I’ve been leaning towards Wurts for a years, I bought THE CURSE OF THE MISTWRAITH on a kindle deal a few months ago. Her EMPIRE trilogy with Feist was great.

      What’s funny is that I didn’t look at the availability of the Lindholm book when I put it on my list, which I usually do. Who knew it was so rare? It would be great if early stuff like that and CLOVEN HOOVES were reprinted. Her early magical realist/contemporary fantasy stuff is great. It looks like a few reprints were made later but went right out of print.

  2. If I had been on the podcast:

    Kate Elliott
    Martha Wells
    James Enge

      It’s funny, I wasn’t thinking much of more contemporary work or authors (those are all good choices; I think my adoration of Enge is well-known).

        Well, I have a whole column at Skiffy and Fanty for older books which are overlooked or forgotten πŸ˜‰

          I just realized I got a book title wrong too. The book I read that Joanna Russ story in was MASTERPIECES OF FANTASY & ENCHANTMENT, published in 1988.

  3. Jeff Patterson // September 25, 2014 at 11:36 pm //

    Just realized I was thinking of City at the End of Time, NOT Hull Zero Three.

  4. One series I always think is overlooked is the Age of Misrule series by Marc Chadbourn and The View From The Mirror by Ian Irvine which are two of my favourite re-reads.

  5. That was two series not one. Ooops
