Reality Check: 2008 Arthur C. Clarke awards
Originally podcast on Sci-Fi London
In the first of our podcasts recorded at this year’s Sci-Fi London Film Festival, guest presenter Graham Sleight talks to two nominees and the winner of this year’s Arthur C. Clarke awards. In case you don’t know who won, why not listen to the podcast and hear the opening of the envelope and the winner’s reaction! Authors interviewed include Stephen Baxter, Ken MacLeod and Richard Morgan, with commentary by web critic Paul Raven and one of last year’s nominees, Adam Roberts.
An extract from the presentation ceremony is introduced by Tom Hunter from the Clarke Awards and features a cameo by David (SFX) Bradley opening the auspicious envelope!
Edited and recorded by Alex Fitch.
