Episode One: And so we begin…

Welcome to our first episode!

In this episode, originally recorded on January 2, 2011 (yes, we’ve been working on this for that long), we discussed:

Unstoppable [imdb], selected by Elizabeth Bear

A Dream of Wessex by Christopher Priest, selected by Paul Cornell [Christopher’s website]

The Middleman, [imdb] selected by Seanan McGuire

Yarn, by Jon Armstrong, selected by Catherynne M. Valente [Jon’s website]

…and Lynne M. Thomas answered our silly questions.

Feel free to comment and tell us what you think!
