Sword and Laser Podcast 161: What Harry Potter Stole from Earthsea - Boing Boing

[The Sword and Laser (S&L) is a science fiction and fantasy-themed book club podcast hosted by Veronica Belmont and Tom Merritt. The main goal of the club is to build a strong online community of science fiction / fantasy buffs, and to discuss and enjoy books of both genres.] This time around we're kicking off our February book pick, A Wizard of Earthsea, by Ursula K. Le Guin. If you're looking for the first tale a of a boy who attends a school of wizardry, we've got the goods, as well as what Ms. Le Guin, who wrote her book in 1968, thinks of Ms. Rowling. Plus The Clarion Workshop deadline is looming and USC and Intel make one author's world come alive. Sword and Laser is not just a podcast; we’ve also been a book club since 2007! Each month we select a science fiction or fantasy book, discuss it during kick-off and wrap-up episodes of the podcast, and continue that discussion with our listeners over on our Goodreads forums. So come read along with us, and even get a chance to ask your questions to the authors themselves!

Neil Gaiman’s Newest ‘Overture’

Norman Mailer called it “a comic strip for intellectuals.” Best-selling author Neil Gaiman joins us with his dark, new series on the origins of “The Sandman.”


Neil Gaiman, Best-selling author of the acclaimed graphic novel series, “The Sandman,” including the new prequel, “The Sandman: Overture.” Also author of “American Gods,” “Coraline,” “The Graveyard Book” and “The Ocean At the End of the Lane.” (@neilhimself)

From Tom’s Reading List

The New Republic: An Interview With Neil Gaiman, the Internet’s Favorite Fantasy Writer – “Gaiman is perhaps the world’s best-known fantasy writer. The internationally bestselling author of ‘Neverwhere,’ ‘Coraline,’ ‘American Gods,’ ‘Stardust’ and many other books, graphic novels and film adaptations is rich, famous and married to a rock star. He has millions of devoted fans who eat his every word like air. He has won every major award going for science fiction, fantasy, and children’s literature, including the Hugo, the Nebula, the Bram Stoker and the Locus, many times over. He spends most of his time flying around the world between homes and fancy hotels, being celebrated and signing an improbable number of books.”

Paste Magazine: ‘The Sandman: Overture’ by Neil Gaiman & J.H. Williams III — “I have absolutely no hesitation calling ‘The Sandman’ the best comic book ever written. I don’t consider it hyperbole or exaggeration: it’s a universal truth in my head, as unwavering as gravity or male pattern baldness. Other comics have certainly come close, but did ‘Watchmen,’ ‘Blankets,’ or ‘Maus’ deliver sublime graphic literature over seven years for 75 issues?”

The A.V. Club: Neil Gaiman’s classic comic-book series returns with ‘The Sandman: Overture #1′ – “Stories never really end, do they? Even after the final word on the page or the last shot on screen, stories live on in the imagination of the audience and, in more recent times, the limbo where narratives ferment until they’re ready for prequels and sequels. When Neil Gaiman ended ‘The Sandman’ in 1996, he emphasized the idea that these characters and this world would live on after the end of the series, and the nature of mainstream comic books ensured that Gaiman’s concepts would stick around for a while.”
