Sentinels interview (with Benford and Zebrowski)

Here's a podcast interview, over at SF Signal, with Gregory Benford and George Zebrowski, the editors of Sentinels: In Honor of Arthur C. Clarke. The interview begins about 20 minutes into the podcast.

Sentinels contains my essay "Arthur C. Clark and the Ultimate Future of Intelligence", along with much else, including an interview with Clarke, conducted by Zebrowski in 1999/2000, and stories by Robert A. Heinlein and Isaac Asimov. In fact, the list of my fellow contributors is humbling: to name jsut a few others, there's Damien Broderick, Stephen Baxter, Sheila Finch, Frederick Pohl, Jack Williamson, Pamela Sargent ...

And on and on.

Plus, there's a checklist of Clarke's published books (including collaborations). In all, wonderful stuff.
