Episode Sixty-Two - "Publishers are people too..."
Listen now
This week with special guest Sarah Felkar... Mind Grapes: Sam is still riding her wave of Philippa Gregory books and found some more historical romance in the form of the television series The Paradise. Sarah, a huge fan of the military sci-fi genre, talks about John Ringo's Looking Glass series. While they can be a nice introduction to the genre, they can sometimes be disappointing in the depiction of women (or lack thereof). Alli gave The 100 another try and was able to talk about some awesome representations of women in a sci-fi series. She also touches on Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky's incredible comic Sex Criminals which, if you're not squeamish about the title, you should read immediately. Class Z(ed): For the past several years, Sarah has had a major hand in the organization of the BC Library Cooperative's eBook and Digital Collection Summit. This annual event gathers together digital collections librarians from all around BC to take the pulse of where ebook collections are at, how they are changing, and what we want in the future. We discuss the event, how we feel about ebooks, and what we think the future of ebooks will be.
