The Dork Forest

Dork on Dork Dialog with Jackie Kashian. I am interested in whatever dorky thing you want to talk about.

    "Amazons and Swallow – Arthur Ransome"

    should be the other way around: _Swallows and Amazons_.

    Todd Mason: "Bujold is slightly unstuck in the chronology of her fellow writers--Asimov and Clarke were not new writers in the late '50s/early '60s ..."

    I think she was saying that new stuff from them was being published.

    A fine interview...and clearly, you had several blasts from the A/C. (Yes, I am now writing jokes for the NBC late night shows, how'd you guess?) Bujold is slightly unstuck in the chronology of her fellow writers--Asimov and Clarke were not new writers in the late '50s/early '60s unless you, Jackie, are a new comedian...Asimov was first published in AMAZING in 1939, and soon started publishing in his "home" magazine, ASTOUNDING (which became ANALOG in 1960), Clarke began publishing fiction with an ASTOUNDING story in 1946. Lord Dunsany did start publishing fiction in the late 1890s, as a very young man, but most of his work was done in the 20th Century (including his most famous non-fantasy story, of sorts, a slightly Albert Fishian crime fiction called "Two Bottles of Relish"). Eric Frank Russell was a kind of anarchist, frequently a great writer when on his game but very uneven, and his Fortean novel SINISTER BARRIER was a large part of why the fantasy magazine UNKNOWN FANTASY FICTION, a stablemate of ASTOUNDING at Street and Smith Publications, was started (and provided such a wonderful new market for fantasy writers till WW2 paper shortages put an end to the magazine in 1943). And, sadly, part of the reason so many kids are so overscheduled today is that their parents are so overworked, and guilty about not having enough time for their kids, as well as terrified the kids will fall prey to all the lower-rent Albert Fishes out there...the kind of molesters we were all supposed to keep quiet about when we were kids...but, as someone rather aware of such predatory men and women from an early age, I was rather less startled than entirely too many the investigations and prosecutions of teachers and church officials and others over the last decade or so...
