Jack Williamson and Frederik Pohl recording on Collaboration

I just posted a recording on the SFOHA site, though I’d share it hear. A couple of my heroes.

Here’s an interesting panel discussion with two Science Fiction Grand Masters, Frederik Pohl and Jack Williamson. They wrote some great books in collaboration with each other including the Starchild Trilogy and the under appreciated Saga of Cuckoo series. Fred Pohl collaborated with C.M. Kornbluth on the classic novel The Space Merchants as well as other novels and short stories. His most recent novel is a collaboration with the late Arthur C. Clarke called The Last Theorem. Jack Williamson passed away in 2006.

“The Art, Science, and Combat of Collaboration.” ConFusion 14, Ann Arbor Inn, Ann Arbor, MI,
January, 1977.
Introduction by Jim Martin. Q&A.
Pohl and Williamson are veterans of collaboration with other authors–including a series of novels done with each other. They offer rare insights into an activity that seems more common in Science Fiction than with other types of literature. They also discuss problems in writing and in getting published.
