Comic Book Outsiders Episode 76

April 7, 2010

In this episode Steve is back from a short break in Prague and before they get into some News and Reviews, Scott and Steve discuss comics shops in Europe and a possible scenario for the future of comic shops everywhere. After that they discuss some TV news, Scott introduced some free online comics and video content, and Steve talks about some recent comic announcements from the WonderCon.

The main feature of this episode is our current book club selection. This episode Scott and Steve discuss The Caves of Steel by Isaac Asimov, with comments and feedback from listeners. The book is only about 200 pages long and yet it generated a lot of discussion on the forum. As well as talking about the murder mystery aspect of the story, we look at the themes and many ideas, technological, social and behavioural, introduced by Asimov.

We also announce our next book club selection which has recently been nominated for an Arthur C. Clarke award and it won best novel from the British Science Fiction Association which was announced last weekend in London at the Eastercon convention. The novel is The City and the City by China Mieville which was first published in 2009. We will be discussing this book in six weeks time in episode 80, but you can send us your comments and feedback about the book at any time. Contact details are at the end of the show and are available on the website www.comicbookoutsiders.com
