Welcome to the April Episode of the SF Squeecast! Episode 11, This Episode Goes To… This episode brought together Squeecast regulars Lynne M. Thomas, Elizabeth Bear, Seanan McGuire, and Catherynne M. Valente.

In this episode we talked about:

  • It by Stephen King (shared by Seanan McGuire)
  • Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed (shared by Lynne M. Thomas)
  • Redemption in Indigo by Karen Lord (shared by Elizabeth Bear)
  • Was by Geoff Ryman (shared by Catherynne M. Valente)
  • With a bonus digression of Seanan’s reaction to The Hum and the Shiver in there somewhere.
  • We skipped the silly questions this time, in favor of an “invisible cup of tea” segment, where we discussed the whole notion of negative reviews of other people’s work when you’re a professional writer yourself.
