AISFP 63 - Writers and Illustrators of the Future

"Open The Pod Bay Doors, HAL."

Shaun Farrell was invited to the WOTF/IOTF Workshop and Event in August. He recorded some interviews with the writers and illustrators for his podcast Adventures in Science Fiction Publishing right after the writers had first gotten to see the illustrations for their stories and meet up with their illustrators -- it was a very joyous occasion.

A couple of days ago, that podcast was brought online: AISFP 63 - Writers and Illustrators of the Future.

Fast Forward

The whole show is listed as 52 minutes 21 seconds -- I haven't had time to listen to the whole thing yet. But I'm in the first group that got interviewed, which starts at 4:50 and goes to 16:22. This group also contains fellow 2004 Clarionite Al Bogdan and his story's illustrator, and the wonderful William Ruhlig, who illustrated both my "A Man in the Moon" and Sonia Helbig's story.

Spanning the globe: Sonia Helbig from Australia, William Ruhlig from South Africa and Dr. Phil from North America.

Al's illustrator.

Thumbs Up!

Shaun's a great guy and very enthusiastic about his job. Which is pretty damned cool when you think about it. Thanks, Shaun -- you're making us look good, er, sound good. (grin)

As Long As I Have You Here

Here's a couple nice pictures of me. (grin)

Nice picture of me by Sonia Helbig -- I guess I lean my head to the side sometimes. (grin)

And another natural picture by Kim Gillett -- what could be more natural than me talking? (double-grin)
