Episode 2: Live and Sassy with Alan Beatts

At the recent World Fantasy Convention in San Diego, we sat down with Alan Beatts from San Francisco’s Borderlands Books to discuss his article Amazon is Nobody’s Friend.  What followed was a fascinating and disturbing conversation about the future of books and bookstores, and the value of every reader’s vote.

We’d like to thank Alan, and hope you enjoy the podcast. We also promise to try to get a little closer to a regular schedule, now we’re both back from the US (where Alisa won a World Fantasy Award!).

    I think the podcast is good. I think it was the most important conversation I had during the entire convention.

    Have listened to most of it and yeah I think it came out well. It was definitely the longest and most intellectual conversation I had all con. Definitely the most … inspiring isn’t the word I want.
