Dragon Page Notes
As of December 2014, The Dragon Page is closed. No more episodes of "Cover to Cover", no more book reviews.
For those seeking more podcast options featuring only topics on reading and writing SF genre literature, we highly recommend Mur Lafferty's I Should Be Writing, Mur Lafferty and Matt Wallace's Ditch Diggers, SF Signal, Adventures in Scifi Publishing, and Writing Excuses featuring Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, Mary Robinette Kowal and Howard Tayler.
There will also continue to be some book reviews and news coverage at Slice of SciFi, but not as featured as it was here or at any of the above sites and podcasts. Whether a new books show comes along remains to be seen.
Thank you all for your opinions, conversations, contributions and support over the years.
