Jack Williamson on Video & Audio

  Meanwhile, here are two videos we hope you’ll find VERY entertaining. The first is REPORT FROM SANTA FE from 2016 featuring ENMU’s Dr. Patrice Caldwell and authors Daniel Abraham and Victor Milan. The second video is an audio recording from Baycon, the 26th WorldCon, in Oakland, California in 1968. This “Lovecraft and Pulp Fiction” panel (with accompanying photos) features Fritz Leiber, Robert Bloch, Edmond Hamilton, Emil Petaja, E. Hoffman Price, and Jack Williamson sharing what it was like to write for the pulps. The panel is moderated by Baycon co-chair Alva Rogers. Courtesy of the Pacifica Radio Archives.
