Customer Reviews

Funny and Informative!

I simply love this show! I got hooked with their 2-part look at Douglas Adams which was fantastic. While they present the material in a very conversational and informal manner their love and respect for the craft of science fiction is always apparent. Definitely worth subscribing to.

Old friends who know everything about science fiction

To each episode of Starship Sofa, Tony C. Smith and Ciaran O'Carroll bring their funky North England accents and a very relaxed, not to say rambling, conversational style. They also bring loads of information about the great science fiction works, whether it be novels, short stories, radio plays, or films. Their youth may have been misspent on the consumption of massive amounts of sci-fi, but the result is a witty, never-too-long podcast that will certainly be time well spent for any sci fi fan. Memorable topics include bad boys such as L. Ron Hubbard and Harlan Ellison, the impressive nutjob Philip K. Dick, as well as thoughtful, influential types from futurism's distant past such as Cordwainer Smith.

A must for any true science fiction reader!!!

These guys have come up with the most entertaining and informative podcast (presumably from their sofa). They take an author and two of that authors books (but not that authors most famous works), they setup the period by briefly discussing movies or historical events that occured at the time the book was released, and they discuss the plots of the books, the authors life, and some of the authors philosophies. They are not discussing the usual run-of-the-mill science fiction authors either, but real masters of the genre, the authors that helped to shape and form what science fiction is today. A perfect podcast.
