It’s that time again. We’ve got a total of 22 slots for interviews next year (Jan. is stocked up), and we’d like to fill them. If you’ve got a book coming out (from large or small press) or you’re a publisher with stuff to spread (or a film producer/etc. with a film to share), you should contact us at skiffyandfanty[at]gmail[dot]com. Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Anything that fits within the categories of science fiction or fantasy. When we say “anything,” we mean that. Your book need not be published as SF/F, nor must it follow any presumed conventions of genre. We are open to straight genre, magical realism, weird, odd, surreal, and anything between. Check out our list of previous guests, which represents a fairly wide range of stuff (though not as wide as we’d like).
- Anyone, anywhere. Please note, though, that we are very interested in interviewing people living or from places other than the United States, which means we’ll try to spread out our slots across a range of geographic locations. Additionally, we have had a hard time maintaining a fair representation of gender, race, LGBT, etc. on this show; as such, we would really appreciate any help in directing folks outside the traditional white-male spectrum to our show. None of this means we will ignore folks who fit into the traditional spectrums (so don’t think you can’t email us cause you’re a white guy).
- Novels, short story collections, graphic novels or comics, short films, feature length films, and anything between. Print or ebook is fine.
Additionally, if you are interested in participating in a discussion-based episode, we tend to have around 12 of those each year. As a general rule, if we can’t fit you into the 22 interview slots, we’ll ask if you’d like to join us for a discussion episode (in which we’ll cover some topic related to genre and ask you to talk about your book at some point).
To anyone who doesn’t have a book, etc. for us, please share this post on your blog (it’s okay to copy and paste), social network, Twitter, and so on.
