Heavy on the SF, (hopefully) light on the nonsense

If you ever wondered what an SF author's chat session is like ... wonder no more!

The first (of an occasional series?) of SF and Nonsense chats was held January 24th. Topics included tropes in SF, what makes SFnal aliens interesting, genre and subgenre boundaries, and science popularizations. Along the way, we almost certainly took potshots at something you hold dear.

The whole dialogue, from start to finish, is here.

Thanks, Ed. I appreciate it, since I couldn't work out how to join. Maybe by your next chat I'll have a more modern browser...

FWIW, you can experiment any time -- the chat room is always in operation. (When no one else is there, the entertainment opportunities are admittedly limited.)
