James Patrick Kelly and John Kessel came on Coode Street Podcast #113 to have a rather spirited discussion about science fiction. They just put out a new anthology about The Singularity — Digital Rapture. They talked about traditional (Campbellian?) sf vs ‘mainstream sf’ (see their anthology The Secret History of Science Fiction), and traditional sf vs ‘singularity sf’. They also praised M. John Harrison’s book Light. I’ll have to get back to that, but I found some of the characters very unlikeable.
