Write the Future: Women in Speculative Fiction, Ann VanderMeer on The Colin McEnroe Show on NPR

"For some readers, it's hard to imagine speculative fiction without female writers. After all, Margaret Cavendish and Mary Shelley practically created the genre. More recently there are authors like Octavia Butler and Ursula LeGuin. Not to mention J.K. Rowling - who you may have heard of if you've been alive in this century.

The genre has often been a boys club - and some readers prefer it that way - but while women have historically been underrepresented, today women seem to be selling more books and winning more awards than ever before. Today we look at the past, present and future of the genre with three women." —Betsy Kaplan & Alex Dueben, The Colin McEnroe Show

Listen to Paul Krassner on Liam McEneaney's Tell Your Friends! History's Greatest Podcast!

"This week, we speak to satirist, journalist, and counterculture legend Paul Krassner. Paul was the long-time publisher of the famed The Realist, a confidant of Lenny Bruce’s, the man who took Groucho Marx on his first acid trip, and we talk about this and about his time as a pro bono abortion referral service (when they were illegal) and about tripping on The Tonight Show. Seriously, take the time to listen to this." —Liam McEneaney, Tell Your Friends! History's Greatest Podcast!

“Krassner is an expert at ferreting out hypocrisy and absurdism from the more solemn crannies of American culture.” —New York Times

Listen to Ken Wishnia interviewed on Chin Wag At the Slaughterhouse

"Kenneth Wishnia is the author of numerous highly acclaimed novels, among them 23 Shades of Black (and editor of the forthcoming Jewish Noir). His work is imbued with the hybrid knowledge of Noir. An articulate narrator, he is at once both ancient and modern. Kenneth met me at The Slaughterhouse, where we talked about identity and his fictions..."—Richard Godwin, Chin Wag at the Slaughterhouse

Praise for 23 Shades of Black:

“With her sharp tongue, quick mind, and stubborn will, Filomena Buscarseal is the ultimate New Yorker: a cop, a woman, an immigrant who has made the city her own.”
