Dave and I always check back pretty regularly on various episodes, usually at least until the next one posts.

FYI, the transcript of our China Mieville interview will appear in the November issue of Lightspeed, and the Richard Dawkins transcript will appear in December.

We sometimes transcribe the interviews and run them in the magazine I edit, Lightspeed (www.lightspeedmagazine.com). If we do, it wouldn't run until January or so, I think.

Off the top of my head, there's also GUN, WITH OCCASIONAL MUSIC by Jonathan Lethem and "Ginny Sweethips' Flying Circus" by Neal Barrett, Jr.

[io9.com] is the podcast feed. I believe if you put that into your podcatcher, it should work. (The link to the feed is right below the audio player in every GGG post.)

Well, I wouldn't publish a review of a movie I didn't finish watching. But if I'm talking about terrible movies, I think it's perfectly valid to point out that the movie was so terrible I had to quit watching it. And since we're not doing reviews on the podcast, per se, just talking about books or movies or whatever Read more

He does talk about spaghettification. There are no transcripts, I'm afraid, and no current plans to make them available—it's a lot of work putting the podcast together as it is, and transcribing them on top of that would make it a lot more work.

We did the interview right before he had his stroke, but he seems to be doing quite well—apparently he can speak fine and is continuing to do other audio interviews, but he's having to retrain his fingers to type properly.

The io9 overlords promise that they're working on getting the MP3 fixed. It's some unforeseen complication with the new site design.

@tamahome: I guess you'll have to read Marjorie's merpeople book to find out! It's published as romance, so I'm sure there's plenty of anthropological research to be had there for you. (Meranthropological?)

@ehud1980: The novel version came out in 1985, but then in 1991, the book was reissued in a slightly revised edition, with the text "author's preferred edition" displayed on the front cover. Greg Janda above indicates that it was just adjusted for some political issues to keep it current (like the collapse of the Read more

As someone else mentioned in the comments, the first book of The Dark Tower—The Gunslinger—was revised by King to make it work better with later volumes in the series. Also it was originally called The Dark Tower, then changed to The Gunslinger. Though maybe it doesn't qualify as having been changed significantly Read more

@Tristam Green: Well, I don't know—I mean I said in the interview that at least one writer wanted to do a steampunk sort of thing. Is having a giant mecha powered by steam all that dissimilar from Dr. Doom's Magick-powered suit? I don't see how whether it's magic or technology that powers the suit really makes all Read more

@telepresence: That was addressed earlier in this thread. Note that Body Armor: 2000 is a reprint anthology not an original anthology.

@ringer81: We started the show on Tor.com, then moved it over here to io9, starting with ep. 22. So eps. 22 onward are hosted here on io9. The show airs twice a month, so in our off weeks, we've been resyndicating the earlier episodes that originally aired on Tor.com over here, for those that missed them. The rerun Read more

@GeneralBattuta: I've never been to ICFA, but I hope to attend someday. I'm not sure when, though probably not this year. I'm going to be guest of honor at Aggiecon (my first GOH!) which is around the same time as ICFA.
