Rob on Canada A.M. on Tuesday

CTV is the Canadian broadcaster for the FlashForward TV series, and they've booked me on their flagship morning show Canada A.M. for this Tuesday, September 22, 2009 (because that's the last day I'm in Toronto before the series premiere, two days later). I'm scheduled to go on at 8:40 a.m. Eastern time.

Not that anyone's counting, but this will be my fifth appearance on Canada A.M.

My appearances:(Yeah, it's been a long hiatus; Dan Matheson, who used to co-host Canada A.M., is a big fan of my books, but now he's anchoring newscasts for CTV. It's nice to be back -- although I have done 162 appearances on other shows in the interim!)

Hour of the Wolf interviews RJS

The long-running New York science-fiction radio program Hour of the Wolf recorded an interview with Robert J. Sawyer at Readercon in July 2009, and it aired on Saturday, September 12. You can listen to an MP3 of the broadcast right here.

I come on at 27 minutes and 20 seconds mark and run all the way to the 1 hour 43 minutes and 30 seconds mark. The host is Jim Freund.

Topics: why I gave up writing short fiction, my mission statement as a writer, the FlashForward TV series, why there are not many scientists on TV, my new novel Wake (including me doing a reading from the book), and more.

(The terrific theme music is from the 1972 movie Silent Running, always one of my favourites.)

Today's (Saturday, June 27, 2009) Regina Leader-Post -- the major daily newspaper in the capital city of the province of Saskatchewan -- has a wonderful profile of me by Samantha Maciag.

The article covers my writer-in-residence position at the Canadian Light Source synchrotron in Saskatoon, and my current novel, Wake.

You can read the full text online here, and below is how it looks in the printed edition of the paper:

Many thanks to Carolyn who worked hard to land this interview for me!

Geek Monthly, that is. And the June 2009 edition of this glossy American newsstand magazine features a wonderful two-page spread on Robert J. Sawyer and his new novel Wake.

The text isn't available online (hence the greeked Geek you're seeing here), so get thee to a newsstandary! But it sure is a cool-looking layout:

The article, by Jeff Renaud, is entitled The World Wide Web Wakes Up in 2009 ... And Robert Sawyer Set the Alarm, and it begins:
Wake, the first book in Robert Sawyer's highly anticipated WWW trilogy, boasts a leading man that will be tough to cast if Hollywood ever wants to make it into a movie. How the heck do you screen test for a series of tubes?
So, go grab a copy!
