Show Notes: Charles Stross
Discussion: Keeping the e-book reader debate going! Jason on the road, commends Mike Stackpole on the iPhone app books, and thinks that a cross-platform media format for ebooks isn't a bad thing, and it isn't.
Interview: Hugo Award nominee and winner Charles Stross is in studio to chat about his latest book, Saturn's Children. Charles explains how the story is really a Heinlein styled period piece, an homage to Heinlein's late period, and tells the story of an android designed to be a sex robot for humans, only humans have gone extinct before she rolls off the assembly line.
Why else would a robot have been built with nipples?
The talk ranges from the appeal of Heinlein, the book sales percentages in the UK, and about the next few books he is working on, a sequl to Halting State, and more in the Merchant Princes series.
