tooting me own horn

Radio. . . television . . . next year, the world!
I was recently a guest on a local tv show called Monday Night Live, hosted by the gracious Keith Roe.
Put up your feet, grab a drink, and click here to watch the show. John and I discuss how and why we got into science fiction, how and where to find trustworthy book reviews, some new releases we’re excited about, we talk a bit about the industry, blogging, authors, happy birthday to Douglas Adams and what happens when a boy robot and a girl robot meet in outer space.
Authors mentioned by name include Robert Jackson Bennett, Guy Hasson, John Scalzi, Cory Doctorow, and John Love, apologies if I mispronounced anyone’s name. Authors not mentioned by name, but referred to, you can probably figure out who you are. I didn’t give up all my secrets!
A question that came up unexpectedly in the show, what was books to recommend to high school students to get them turned on about math and science? I recommended Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, which isn’t exactly about math or science, but I still felt it was important for high schoolers to read.
What books would you recommend for teens, to get them interested in careers in math and science?
If Keith ever invites me back, I promise to talk louder.
note to self: live TV is way, WAY different from pre-recording a radio segment. epically different.
