The Drax Files Radio Hour

Drax grills me on all my favourite subjects and you can watch our digital banter here. Or check out the highlights here!

Continuum 15

Ken Liu and Kate Elliot were terrific guests. A personal highlight for me was scoring the William Atheling Jr Award for Criticism or Review for my PhD exegesis! Con photos here.
