Recently, it was my privilege to take part in a discussion of William Gibson's Spook Countryhosted by the new Science Fiction Awards Watch. The discussion is between yours truly, noted anthologist Ellen Datlow, Michael Levy of Publishers Weekly and Rick Kleffel of The Agony Column and NPR, and is moderated by the wonderful Cheryl Morgan. I hope you all enjoy it. And, if you do feel free to drop over to this post and comment. Personally, I found Rick Kleffel's opening (and only) salvo the most profound comment on the novel:
"William Gibson’s latest novel, Spook Country, evokes the desolation that we find ourselves immersed in with a skill that is clearly the work of his unconscious. And that unconscious has a rather odd reaction to its isolation; it laughs, or at least it wants to laugh."
