Today's episode features an overflowing cornucopia of amazing voices from the worlds of fantasy and science fiction, all gathered up in live recordings at this year's San Diego Comic Con, just a few days ago. Our main event is an all-star panel of writers talking about the increasingly unstable boundaries between the news and the worlds they dream up -- and the equally strange borderlands between writers and fans. B&N's science fiction and fantasy expert James Killen is joined by writers Charlie Jane Anders , Cory Doctorow, Sarah Gailey, Seanan McGuire and Annalee Newitz for a everything from writing in a world on fire, handling the wild energy of fandom and more. But before we get there, were going to take a brief stop on the convention floor as , B&N's Joel Cunningham talks with novelists Ann Leckie and Rebecca Roanhorse, both of whom are experiencing the madness of Comic Con for the first time. (And we're just going to tell you now: you need to stick around to the end to hear Seanan McGuire explain just what she was doing in the swamp).
