Sweconpoddar 109 – Ska vi byta idéer med varann?

Författaryrket är känt för att vara ett ensamt arbete, men måste det vara det? Via sociala medier och fysiska träffar (som tex konvent) skapas idag grupper och nätverk där idéer byts och samarbeten skapas för att bryta ensamheten. Men hur går det till på bästa sätt och på vilket sätt förbättrar det situationen för den enskilda författaren? Fyra författare med erfarenhet av samarbetet diskuterar ämnet.

Denna intervju spelades in på Swecon 2021 – Fantastika i Stockholm.

Medverkande: Helen Ekeroth, Cinna Lupina Ojala, Anna Jakobsson Lund, Camilla Linde och Pernilla Perny Lindgren (moderator).

Sweconpoddar 105 – Future fandom

Fandom is very much about communication and and the exchange of ideas. It has moved from clubs and fanzines to the internet, but the conventions remain. What will happen in the future? Will we still meet? Will fandom be more or less organised? Will everything be available in our phones, or perhaps directly in our brains? Here is room for wild speculations.

Sweconpoddar 104 – Between Stasi and the promised Socialist Paradise: SF and fandom in the GDR, with Thomas Recktenwald

Imagine SF authors whose books had a print-run of 100,000 copies, were sold out within days and could not be reprinted because there was no hard currency left for paper. Or secret service employees who infiltrated SF clubs but were easy to expose because they had no idea about SF. But beware: Being an SF author or reader in the GDR could sometimes destroy your career!
