    I have seen Locus here in a shop occasionally, it costs more than a novel, so not worth buying when I look at it like that.

    The online indexes etc. are cool, no doubt, as far as bibliography etc., goes.

    CDs of those get sold I think, but not the mag?

    So speaking of appealing to the young, still stuck in the old-fashioned model for the magazine part of it.

  2. Christopher Scott Owens says:


    It’s good to hear that you got through the fires unscathed.

    Thanks again for another great episode. I’m a big fan of the first Runelord series, and I loved Elantris–so this really hit the spot.

  3. shaun and Sam,

    i havent heard the episode yet, but i wanted to say i was thinking of both of you these past few days and wondering.

    take care and my prayers are with you all out there.

  4. Shaun Farrell says:

    I look at Locus as a great investment. Not only do they help me decide what books are worth reading, but I’ve learned a great deal about the genre and about publishing thanks to them. I also love the critical pieces they have about writers. The recent articles about Robert Heinlien and Ray Bradbury were outstanding.

  5. Shaun Farrell says:

    Thanks Christopher and Raul. I appreciate the well wishes about our safety. The fires have moved far east, but they’ll continue to burn into next week.

  6. Steve Buchheit says:

    Yeah Josh, Larry, and Eric. Congrats on winning.

    Also glad Shaun and Sam made it through the fires.
