14.7: How Weird is Too Weird?
Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary Robinette, Margaret, and Howard
How weird, how far outside the realm of what the reader feels to be familiar, is too weird? Where is the line beyond which the fantasy is too fantastic, the unreal too unrealistic, or the aliens too alien? In this episode we discuss finding that line, and with the tools at our disposal, possibly moving it.
