Welcome to the first episode of the new series of Strange Horizons podcasts! Our first foray into podcasting, earlier this year, was really more of a trial run. We may still be working out some of the kinks in the process, but we're back, and ready to have some fun.
The first episode of this new series (presented here in two parts) is a coversation with author Benjamin Rosenbaum. Ben has had fiction published in venues ranging from Fantasy and Science Fiction to Harper's, as well as right here at Strange Horizons, and his story "The House Beyond Your Sky" is a nominee for the Hugo Award this year. Ben spoke with Strange Horizons editor Susan Marie Groppi about a range of topics, including Creative Commons licensing, life in Switzerland, and of course his writing and other creative work.
