Learning the WorldThis week, "Cover to Cover" continues our Hugo Award nominated novels and novellas special interview series. There'll be one story per show covered up until the Hugos are awarded at Worldcon in Anaheim, August 23-27, 2006.

This week, Michael and Evo talk to Ken MacLeod about his novel Learning The World, a story takes a different tack in examining life in a generation ship, deep space colonization, and the possibilities and problems that arise when a system targeted for colonization is already inhabited by sentient Industrial Age life forms.
