SF Squeecast Episode 9 Is Live!

So for A Very Special Episode in Honor of Valentine’s Day, we did our level best to be exceedingly awkward.

From the show notes:

In this episode we discussed works from each Squeecaster that we had consumed. Their websites are linked on our sidebar, so we’re just gonna list ‘em.

  • First we talked about Paul Cornell’s Doctor Who work, and his fiction work, including his short story “Secret Identity” and the novelette “The Copenhagen Interpretation” (plus a couple of bonus Doctor Who New Adventures novels). I should note that I misspoke about the season in which “Human Nature/The Family of Blood” appear: they are in the THIRD series of the New Series, not the second. I also happened to reverse the sexualities of the main character in Paul’s short story that appeared in the Masked anthology, “Secret Identity.” It’s a good story, but I read it over a year ago. (Sorry, Paul.)
  • Then we talked about the works of Seanan McGuire, specificallyFeedDiscount Armageddon, and her album Wicked Girls. Please note: WE TOTALLY SPOILED THE END OF FEED to talk about the awesome execution of it. If you don’t want to be spoiled, you’ll need to fast forward about 5 minutesYou have been warned.
  • Lynne M. Thomas was on the hotseat next, as Squeecasters discussed Chicks Dig Time Lords and Apex Magazine and the SF Archives at NIU.
  • We discussed Cat Valente’s work next, specifically Deathless andThe Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, and The Orphan’s Tales.
  • Elizabeth Bear was next, and we talked about The Stratford Man, The Jenny Casey novels, and the New Amsterdam stories.
  • Finally, we put Scott on the hot seat, discussing The Lies of Locke Lamora, and making him answer embarrassing questions. There were sharks involved.
Go listen. Trust me.
