Weekly Roundup: The Skiffy and Fanty Show / Duke and Zink Do America

Leave a comment

This is the first in my weekly roundups of stuff I’m doing elsewhere.  Here goes:

In last week’s episode, Jen and I interviewed Michael Sullivan, author of The Riyria Revelations series.  The conversation wandered from publishing to reviews to fantasy to anti-heroes to the wickedness of dwarves (and, of course, the novels).  You can check out the episode here.

This week’s episode is a long discussion with Liz Bourke about LGBT discrimination in publishing, SF/F books for the ladyfolk (whatever that means), history from the classical period (with a little medieval history for good measure), and SF/F in the global sphere (and the women on the margins therein).  You can check out that episode here.


The first Duke and Zink Do America column is a dialogue between Jen and I on the subject of the U.N. security council and the recent veto by China and Russia of its proposed public condemnation of Syria.  Feel free to head over, read what we have to say, and offer your two cents!
