Rocket Talk: A Podcast

Rocket Talk Episode 35: Rob H. Bedford

Featuring blogger Rob Bedford, this week’s Rocket Talk podcast episode delves into the relationship between the author and reviewer.

In light of all the recent challenges with this dynamic, Justin asks questions ranging from how Rob views his own relationship to reviewing, how things have changed in the decade plus he’s been in the business, and whether or not there’s something we can do to improve it moving forward.

Books discussed include Brian Staveley’s The Emperor’s Blades and Julie Czerneda’s Species Imperative omnibus.

Rob Bedford is one of the longest running SFF bloggers, with over a decade in the business. He’s the lead US book reviewer at the oft quoted SFF World, a blogger, a regular at the Hugo Award winning SF Signal, and the owner of Rob’s Blog of Stuff. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and Sully the Dog. You can follow him on twitter.
