I probably won’t be able to make it, but on Saturday June 14th, Michael Bishop will be speaking at the meeting of the Atlanta Science Fiction Society. Mr. Bishop will always have a special place in my heart as the very first person to say yes to me when I was trying to get my radio interview show off the ground. His novel Brittle Innings (the current book when I interviewed him) remains one of my favorite novels of all time. He’s also a great guy, very hospitable and easy to talk to. Like me, he’s from Nebraska (he’s from Lincoln – I spent my first 8 years 100 miles from there and frequently visited my grandparents in Lincoln) and then later transplanted to Georgia.
