    In this episode, we review three great science fiction books, we talk about the upcoming improvements in Intel’s Skylake CPUs, and we discuss the strangely absent Cultural Apocalypse.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for mentioning my novel 'Beautiful Intelligence' in your podcast - I'm glad it was enjoyed. Would you like to do some sort of audio interview with me some time? I have full sound recording facilities at home. Could be interesting.

    Let me know! Steve (in the UK...)
