It's a virtual bachelorette party of SciFi and Fantasy discussion today, with a chat about how SciFi can be interesting if it follows the laws of physics, and an interview with author Anton Strout.

Yeah, I wanted to read Cloud Atlas, but I've so many other books on my read list. Now I have the perfect excuse!

Thanks for having me on, Tom and Veronica. Hearing your William Gibson stuff in the Quick Burns I should have told the story of the day he walked by my office, and his editor popped her head in to say "Bill and I are grabbing some sandwiches, you wanna come with?"
So there I was, just eatin' Grey Dog sammiches, talking to one of my writing HEROES like it's no big thing... I may have peed a little.

Podcast days are the only time I wish my commute to work was longer. I was very tempted to sit out in my car listening, especially because I had to cut it off mid-story.
Oh well something to look forward to on the ride home.

Thanks for another good show. Loved the talk around the urban fantasy talk and the bringing of "real" world elements into fantasy. Bureaucracy is definitely something that comes with the modern world. Totally agree with Anton about Anita Blake books. Anton was a great interview. He is a fun guy.

Did Tom pop out of a cake?

Fun show as always, really enjoyed the interview.
@Tom – Love the enthusiasm, keep it up! But did I mishear or did you use the word "bounded" instead of bound when referring to restrictive boundaries? I'm not trying to be an ass; I'm more interested if I misheard you, as this would indicate a possible braincloud on my part.

That's old hat for Tom. Its not a Sword & Laser video shoot without Tom popping out of a cake.

I checked out your podcast and listened to the Patrick Rothfuss & Saladin(really cool name) Ahmed episodes- very fun and interesting show, definitely a new regular 'cast for me. Thanks for coming onto S&L!
For anyone else interested in Anton's show:

Great episode! I was finally able to listen to it today while grocery shopping. I had never hears of Anton Strout before, but now I've got a couple of his books tagged to procure. Thanks for introducing me to his works!

I was drinking, so I may have said bounded. Don't jump in a volcano please, just in case.

I'm catching up and just listening to this podcast now.
Wouldn't Neil Gaiman be a good example of an Urban Fantasy writer? I'm thinking of American Gods and Neverwhere in particular, but I actually think most of his stuff would fit into that category. And his stories have very little "paranormal romance".
