The Salon: A Changing Conversation
Each month Cheryl Morgan invites a number of celebrity guests to visit The Salon and talk about some topic related to speculative literature.
This month we welcome Gary K. Wolfe, Nnedi Okorafor and Fábio Fernandes. The topic of conversation is, perhaps appropriately, The Conversation — how we talk about science fiction and understand its history.
Some of the items mentioned during the podcast are linked to below.
The only translated novel ever to be nominated for the Best Novel Hugo Award was Sylva by Vercours (Jean Bruller). It featured in the 1963 Hugos awarded at Discon I in Washington DC. The winner of Best Novel that year was The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick. More information about Vercors can be found in his obituary at the New York Times.
The regular podcast featuring Gary K. Wolfe and Jonathan Strahan can be found at Jonathan’s blog, Notes from Coode Street.
