After a couple of weeks of TBRCon2022 craziness, SFF Addicts is back to its regularly scheduled programming with a new numbered episode! Join host Adrian M. Gibson and authors Adrian Tchaikovsky, J. S. Dewes and Jonathan Nevair as they explore the wonders of space opera in a galaxy far, far away. During the panel they discuss the (often confusing) fundamentals and origins of space opera, aliens vs. the human experience, the shifting perspectives of the genre, subversion of outdated genre conventions, mythology and history as a framework for modern sci-fi stories and much more.
