For those who did not hear the live broadcast, the third episode of Science Fiction Spotlight Radio is online and ready for you to listen to it as a podcast. The guest is Matt Mather, one of the world’s leading thriller writers who has turned his hand to writing Science Fiction with his new Nomad series.
The interview went very well and spanned subject ranging from the popularity of Apocalyptic fiction to the enduring legacy of Isaac Asimov. It’s a good listen and well worth your time.
Hear Paul’s interview of Matt Mather!
As of yesterday, I am now an Active Member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, the professional association of those people who have proved to the organization that they have sold works of SF or Fantasy in the English language to real writers’ markets (or to the public at large) and have received substantial payment for their work. There are just under 1800 members. This is a credential in the Science Fiction and Fantasy world that says that the member is a “real writer,” and is important if only for that reason, not to mention that it makes the member’s works eligible for the prestigious Nebula Award and allows the member to participate in other activities.
Yea, it’s just a “credential.” BUT, it is a crredential that I’ve wanted for a long time and that I am very pleased to receive.
I just posted another video on my You Tube channel, this one devoted to answering questions from readers.
Here’s the “listen in” information for my podcast interview. It will go live at 12:00 Eastern Standard Time, which is noon Louisiana time and 10:00 AM Arizona time Friday, October 16, 2013. You can listen to it then, or at any time in the future. Here is where to point your web browser:
This link not only takes you there, but also is supposed to open a player that will let you listen to the show.
This is a very exciting event in my nascent career as a published author and I hope to be able to share it with as many of my friends and readers as possible.
