Did you know I occasionally appear on a podcast? Now you do.

My friend Ralph Lovegrove runs Fictoplasm, a (mostly) science fiction podcast about books and roleplaying games. I’ve appeared in two episodes so far.

Episode 401: What We’re Reading
Rhi has been reading What Makes This Book So Great? by Jo Walton and Heriot by Margaret Mahy. Josh has been reading Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee, and The Tale Of The Axe by David Miles. He’s currently running Blades In The Dark. Ralph has been reading Gun With Occasional Music by Jonathan Lethem, and the anthology Ubiquicity collected by Todd Foley. He’s still writing Stormhack.

Episode 402: Excession by Iain M. Banks
Rhi and Paul join Ralph to talk about Iain M. Banks’ Excession and The Culture. Post-scarcity, intelligent starships, body modification and first contact.

There are three previous seasons and listening to them inspired me to join in. It’s excellent talking about books with other people who’ve also read them and hearing new recommendations.
