This is the first big SF convention that I’ve ever been to, and the only one where I came with a large number of friends I’d known ahead of time. The only convention I’ve been to besides this has been MiniCon in the Twin Cities, which is a few hundred people, and although I’ve made some friends there, I didn’t know any of them ahead of time. Here at WorldCon there are literally dozens of people whom I have met in some respect, varying from casual acquaintances from forums, to editors who have considered my stories for their magazines, to close friends who I’ve been in continuous contact with for years.
So this is a “Best of” list combining all of Lightspeed’s podcasted backlog, combined with the 10 Fantasy Magazine episodes in consideration as well.
Upcoming Interview: John Joseph Adams, editor of numerous anthologies, currently the assistant editor of F&SF, and soon-to-be fiction editor of new magazine Lightspeed. Have any questions for him? Drop me a line and we’ll try to work them in.
