Episode #252 of Fast Forward: Contemporary Science Fiction is out. Better late than never! This month we look into our stack of “unpublished” interviews, and present both Ann and Jeff VanderMeer, recorded at Capclave 2010. Ann and Jeff were both Guests of Honor at the convention, and were gracious enough to give us a few minutes of their time to talk about their work.
In our intervew with Ann VanderMeer, she talks about her early editing and publishing ventures, her work as editor-in-chief at Weird Tales magazine, and her collaborations with husband Jeff. She also discusses her views on steampunk and new weird fiction. (Please note that in August of 2011, Weird Tales was sold to another publisher and Ann left her editorial position at the magazine. In November of 2011, she and Jeff launched Weird Fiction Review, a website that calls itself “your non-denominational source for the weird”.
