Live, online Spider Robinson lecture on writing science fiction

Tony Smith from the StarShipSofa science fiction podcast sez, "Spider Robinson will share the sofa for a confidential live online talk full of anecdotes and insights about science fiction, the publishing industry, and his lifelong journey as a reader, writer, and voice of the genre. Don't think of this as a lecture; think of it as a cosy chat with an old friend, one who just happens to be a shining star of contemporary science fiction and who knows all the juicy, meaningful stories you can't find in 'how to' books. See the genre as you've never seen it before, through the eyes of a gifted and generous storyteller and professional. There's room on the sofa for you. Join StarShipSofa as it welcomes Spider Robinson for this one-time-only live event!"

How To Write Science Fiction with... Spider Robinson (Thanks, Tony!)


  1. I like Spider; would love to hear this, but…

    …seriously, though…TWENTY QUID??! (Plus “fee”?)

    Erm, no thanks.

  2.  About $32 sounds like a fair price to me since I have never been able to make it to any kind of convention. The sticker for me is the time. I live out west and noon on a work day is going to be hard to pull off.

    1. From the link, at the very end: “If you really want access to this information but you can not make it to the live session, go ahead and sign up for the session.  Everyone who is signed up for this webinar will be given access to Video and Audio recordings of the entire session the week following the webinar.”

  3. God bless Spider. I hope he makes bank from this.

    Hey, Cory: maybe mention that small matter of the fee in the article, huh? Lot of people are gonna click the link expecting a free show and be put off by the unexpected price. Be honest about it up front and he’ll get more interest.

  4. Link? What link? I clicked and clicked on the graphic at the top of the article that says

    [stuff stuff stuff]
    FIND OUT MORE >>>>>

    and nothing happened. Finally I noticed the line at the bottom of the announcement, dark red but otherwise just the same style as the rest of the text, no underline or anything, saying “How To Write Science Fiction with… Spider Robinson (Thanks, Tony!)”… and my cursor pointer turned to the pointing hand on it. Y’think you might PUT THAT LINK ON THE GRAPHIC TOO, just maybe? Please?
