Back in February I took a trip out to San Francisco where the wonderful Rina Elson and Jacob Weisman (of Tachyon Books) put me up and squired me around town. Rina organizes a monthly reading and discussion series called SF in SF and I was privileged to take part in it.
The program consists of two authors who read from their work and then participate in a panel discussion with fantasy author Terry Bisson. In our case the panel discussion turned out to be a wide-ranging analysis of how dominant narratives act as social controls and how as authors Lucy and I both like to posit alternatives to those stories. It's a great conversation and one worth checking out.
Here are the podcasts of the event. More information is also available on Rick Kleffel's The Agony Column. Thanks to Rick for posting the podcasts.
