Signal Boost #1: George Sandison (2084) and Alexandra Pierce (Luminescent Threads: Connections to Octavia Butler)

10 Apr

Welcome to the first edition of Signal Boost, a twice a month edition of the Skiffy and Fanty Show where we use our platform to promote books, anthologies, comic books, short films, zines, blogs, podcasts, artists, and whatever other cool stuff we think you should hear about.

In our first edition George Sandison, managing editor of Unsung Stories, joins Jen to tell us about 2084, an upcoming Orwellian inspired anthology that is currently in its Kickstarter phase, and Alexandra Pierce, of Galactic Suburbia, joins Paul to tell us about Luminescent Threads: Connections to Octavia Butler, an upcoming collection of letters and essays from Twelfth Planet Press, about the influence that Octavia Butler has had on the science fiction community, personally, professionally, and politically.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
