Video: interview with Kim Stanley Robinson

Here’s a great interview with Kim Stanley Robinson, in which he speaks about his work (mostly the Mars and Three Californias trilogies) and some of his inspirations. A number of other topics are also discussed: science fiction in academia, the New Wave as the pinnacle of sf, politics, environmentalism, utopias, etc.

I’ve had KSR on my (long) list of authors to check out for some time, and this interview only strengthens my desire to read some of his work. Very informative and interesting conversation here.
