We made it to week three of Warp Drives! In this episode, Dave and I attend John Scalzi’s reading at the University Bookstore in Seattle and talk about the story of the night John met his wife. We also got a sneak preview of the sequel to his novel Lock In, but you’ll have to buy a ticket to John’s reading to get the scoop on that book.
We also talk about John’s newest novel, The Collapsing Empire. It’s an action-packed mix of traditional space opera and new scifi sensibilities. (Like, oh I don’t know, maybe women get to kick ass AND they get to be bisexual!)
Dave also tries to figure out why I dislike The Expanse on television when it contains literally every element I love in a scifi show (#1: space!). I also come clean about “The Butter Incident” so I can continue with the episode with a clear conscience.
