It’s been a long winter, but the Lizard People are out of hibernation and back on their heating rocks (and more importantly, their mics).

It’s our first episode with a guest host! We’re joined by virtual reality talk show host Will Smith to discuss Aurora, by Kim Stanley Robinson.

What’s Aurora, you ask? Well, you should probably read the book before you listen to the episode, but it’s a touching tale of generation ships, systems ecology, island biodiversity, emergent AI, and what happens when you throw a bunch of people into a sealed tube for 140 years.

This is the kind of book that should be right up our metaphorical alleys, since most of us have a deep love of Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars series and all of us are into spaceships.

Episode 00016’s book won the 2015 Hugo Award for best novel. It’s The Three-Body Problem, by Cixin Liu! Get excited!

The Author

George Chimples

George Chimples

George Chimples comes from the far future, where comics are outlawed and only outlaws read comics. In an effort to prevent that horrible dystopia from ever coming into being, he has bravely traveled to the past in an attempt to change the future by ensuring that comics are good. Please do not talk to him about grandfather paradoxes. He likes his comics to be witty, trashy fun with slightly less pulp than a freshly squeezed glass of OJ. George’s favorite comic writers are Warren Ellis and Grant Morrison, while his preferred artists are Guy Davis and Chris Bachalo, He loves superheroes, but also enjoys horror, science fiction, and war comics. You can follow him @TheChimples on Twitter for his ramblings regarding comics, Cleveland sports, and nonsense.
