Siobhan Carroll and Austin Sirkin in Conversation

Today we have author and scholar Siobhan Carroll (author of “In the Gardens of Night“) together with steampunk expert Austin Sirkin (Track Director at Anachrocon) via the magic of Skype. They talk about the academic pursuit of science fiction, fantasy, and related fields, as well as why you can’t Just Glue Some Gears On It (And Call it Steampunk), (Justin Bieber notwithstanding). Alternate history, modernism, post-modernism, post-post-modernism, and dystopian YA also come up.
