Episode 5: Star Trek, Science Fiction & Writing

17 Apr , 2016

This podcast explores themes raised in Against Capitalist Education by Nadim Bakhshov published by Zero books.

My guest this week is the writer and publisher Doug Lain. His most recent book “After the Saucers Landed” was nominated for the 2016 Philip K Dick Award and warmly reviewed at The Hong Kong Review of Books by Alfie Bown. The conversation explores writing, science fiction – my contention that it is the “defining literary genre” of our age and Star Trek.
