Drabblecast Director's Cut: Sing

Post by normsherman » Tue Apr 16, 2019 4:34 am

“A Musical on a Submarine”

Norm and author Kristine Kathryn Rusch discuss her story from way back in 2008 for Drabblecast #53. This is the “Director’s Cut – Sing.”

We also dive into a discussion about unsung women in Science Fiction, like Leigh Bracket and James Tipree Jr. Why use a pen name after all? And how might you use punctuation as sound?

I'm pleased this episode was revived and had a post-commentary from the author. It reminds me of the cliche.... the road to hell is paved with good intentions and all. I have a conflicting opinion about the 'do no harm'... 'savage garden'... 'Prime Directive' ethic. This story nailed it on the head -- what would happen if the mere act of observing and recording has unintended or deadly consequences?
