On the ‘Cast is one of the more interesting people we have had on in a very long while. So interesting, in fact, that we began talking in the pre-show and quite frankly, once the show began, I forgot to introduce him. Shahid Mahmud is the creator of the SF/Fantasy imprint Phoenix Pick. The catalog now includes reprints by Heinlein, Niven, de Camp and many other iconic figures of the genre. We had one hell of a discussion that just barely began to pique the interest of Commander Cam and myself on a myriad of topics.
How does a young child in Pakistan get hooked on Star Trek and science fiction? How does one give up a lucrative and successful career in Financial Management to open a publishing house? We also spoke about the release of Ben Bova’s final book “Power Challenges” and how he came to publish it.This ‘Cast is filled with amazing stories and the surety of many more to come.
Come listen and enjoy.http://www.scifisaturdaynight.com/podcast/talkcast485.mp3
