We explain why the Tiptree Award is now the Otherwise award, welcome the casting of Apple's Foundation TV show, and Sam Sykes has a message for Stephen King (and Myke Cole).

To quote Vernor Vinge ;-)

Jen | 158 comments Top Secret! is the Val Kilmer movie you were trying to remember in the interview :) His character's name was Nick (my father thought of it while he was shaving).

My friends and I used to quote that movie all the time.

"I know a little German. He's right over there."

Ok, I'll see myself out before I get carried away with the quoting :)

Trike | 5702 comments Me, I love the immediate transition from a discussion of Val Kilmer movies to a question from Willow, and nobody noticed. 😂

I finally got mentioned in the podcast!
I was referring to the magic torn from her in the blurb, but the answer to my question (if you'd asked it) would've been a spoiler for future books. I didn't really expect him to answer it. It was the question on my mind ever since listening to that part of the book.
I look forward to hearing your reaction.

Oh! I haven't seen that one, my bad!

Trike | 5702 comments Speaking of Kilmer, he’s written a memoir titled “I Am Your Huckleberry.”

I would’ve preferred “The Iceman Cometh” but apparently that was taken by some nobody.
