Today we’re interviewing science fiction author Larry Niven. Mister Niven has been cranking out the tales since his first short story was published in 1964. Since then, he’s won Ditmar, Hugo, Locus and Nebula awards, as well as becoming more-or-less the grand master of mega structure-based SF, such as the Ringworld series and the current Fleet of Worlds series. Without question, the author to have had more influence over my own tastes and talents than anyone apart from Philip K. Dick. I’m an unabashed fan. Mister Niven, thank you very much for agreeing to talk to us today.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: Handing The Torch To Church

Republibot 3.0's picture

Today is an momentous day in the annals of Fan Film Friday. Up until now I've been half-assedly handling this feature, but as of now it is officially turned over to our official new Fan Film Reporter, Church Tucker. It's not commonly known, but he was providing around half the content anyway. The only difference really is fewer misspellings(Those were mine) and he gets credit for the good stuff.

Regulars on the site will already recognize Church for his many
contributions, but for those of you who are new, or not particularlyattentive, I thought a little intro might be in order.

INTERVIEW: Keith Hamilton Cobb

Keith Hamilton CobbToday we’re speaking with actor Keith Hamilton Cobb, honestly, I think, one of the most compelling actors working on the small screen in the past decade or two. Mr. Cobb is probably best known as “Noah Keefer” from “All My Children” back in the nineties, but among geeks like us, he’s immediately identified as “Tyr Anasazi” from “Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda.” He’s won a number of awards, and was nominated for a daytime Emmy. In addition to all that, he’s just arrestingly cool.

Mister Cobb, thank you very much for talking with us today

An Interview with fantasy author and RB contributor Samuel Ben White

Sam White's picture

To say that any fiction has to conform to someone else’s idea of what’s “right” based the current mores of theology, science or whatever is to miss the point of fiction. Fiction is about exploring the “what ifs” of life and thought. Granted: it needs to be interesting and/or entertaining, but it can be as wild and unconventional as the author can successfully create.

SCIENCE FICTION UNIVERSITY: Kristine Nielsen on Astrobiology

Republibot 3.0's picture

Welcome to our infrequent, but well-intentioned “Science Fiction University” feature, in which we attempt to explain, expound, enlighten, and just generally explore the ideas surrounding SF. This is the first SFU to be in the form of an interview, but given the level of scientific content, I figured it was appropriate.
