We’re giving Star Trek a rest (in peace) this week as we discuss some of sci-fi’s smartest and spookiest films! Plus, author Mary Fan joins the show to continue last week’s discussion about the links between science fiction and fantasy storytelling. During our interview, Mary and I talk about her writing process, the artificial divisions between sci-fi and fantasy, the importance of depicting utopian worlds, technobabble and arcane language, our hopes for DS9: The Next Generation, Marvel “magic”, getting to Skellig Michael, circus lessons, and why seeing “yourself” in fiction can change your life.
