As an experiment, I’m going to post some audio files – these are from a recording of an interview I conducted with Harry Harrison ‘on stage’ at Octocon in 2001. I’ve split the interview into a number of sections, ranging in length from 5 to 15 minutes or so: I split the file wherever there was a natural subject change.
The convention panel was originally titled ‘Harry Harrison at 50’ and was intended to be a celebration of the fact that Harry had been a professional SF writer for 50 years at that point.
As this was a live recording, the sound quality isn’t brilliant, but it is – I hope – audible.
If you have any difficulty accessing it or hearing it, let me know. The file is approx. 4.5Mb.
Thanks to Harry for allowing this recording to be posted to the blog.
After a brief intro from me, this first part goes straight into a discussion of Sex in Science Fiction, which Harry had written about in the book Great Balls of Fire.
