AISFP 141 – Stephen Cass of Technology Review

THE WORKER PRINCE, by Bryan Thomas Schmidt, is a classic space opera that has been compared to STAR WARS and portrays true heroes vs. true bad guys. When a young prince learns the truth about his heritage, the future of two societies hang in the balance. Oh, and did we mention space ships.

In the wake of Arbitrator Jonah Oliver’s interrogation of Jibril Muraz, a prisoner of UNPOL, his secure life disintegrates into one of lies, corruption, conspiracy and murder. Written in the vein of 1984, TAG is an exciting debut from a new author. If you enjoy utopian societies gone wrong, then you need to give TAG a look.

Bryan is the host and creator of#SFFWRTCHT on Twitter. He interviews science fiction and fantasy professionals every Wednesday at 9pm Eastern, and you can join in the conversation. Find Simon on Twitter, and visit his website for interviews with other indie authors. And, please, tell them AISFP sent you!

Here it is, the first week of our split format. We discuss the following:

  • Amazon has announced four new Kindle devices, including one that directly competes with the Nook Color. We talk about what this might mean for the ebook market.
  • Stephen Cass of Technology Review joins us in the Magazine Spotlight to discuss TR’s first annual special issue of original science fiction. This is a very exciting issue, and we are very pleased to have Stephen on discussing it.
  • Feedback regarding the purpose of book reviews and masculine vampire. Um, that sounds weird, but you’ll hear what we mean.
