Hugo and Nebula award-winning science fiction author Spider Robinson speaks directly to his fans in this podcast, with subjects ranging from space exploration to technology, books, music, and anything else this writer's fertile mind settles upon. The weekly series begins with eight essays written while Spider was writer-in-residence at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre in Vancouver, BC. Born in NYC, Spider Robinson has published 33 books and countless short stories since 1973, winning 3 Hugo Awards, a Nebula, the John W. Campbell Award For New Writer, and other awards. In 2006 he completed VARIABLE STAR, based on a 1955 outline by Robert Heinlein. The online Callahan's community, inspired by his books, is the largest non-porn cybernetwork. A singer/guitarist, he has recorded with David Crosby, Amos Garrett, and other legends. His op-ed columns appeared in Canadas national newspaper for many years, and he has reviewed SF for Analog and Galaxy.
