As the bleak winter pummels us with ice and illness, John E. O. Stevens, Fred Kiesche and Jeff Patterson muster the strength and lucidity to write February off as a loss and trudge forward in search of the mythical Springtime.
First, they discuss the death of Leonard Nimoy, and his impact on SF and Fandom.
Then they turn to the subject of Thomas M. Disch, whose works broke genre conventions on an almost industrial scale. The gentlemen recall their introductions to the author’s work (including fiction, non-fiction, and poetry), and his legacy in SF.
There follows a litany of culture consumed, and some talk about whooshing doors, online shrieking, and myopic definitions of “fan.”
