L. Timmel Duchamp
posted a conversation on the Aqueduct Press blog, October 2007,
in which she and I talk about some questions that have come up around Tiptree.
Jennifer Reese of Entertainment Weekly interviewed me on Critical Mass, the blog of the National Book Critics Circle, April 2007.
Matthew Cheney interviewed me for Strange Horizons, November 2006.
My article "Talking Too Much: About James Tiptree Jr." appeared in The Tiptree Awards Anthology 2. In it I discuss my research and quote from two letters by Tiptree that I wasn't able to include in the book. The anthology also includes a letter from Alli Sheldon to her close friend Rudolf Arnheim.
"Dear Starbear," a selection of Tiptree's correspondence with Ursula K. Le Guin, was published in the September 2006 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.
The best introduction to Tiptree's work is the short story collection Her Smoke Rose Up Forever (Tachyon Publications). Or you could pick up a used copy of Warm Worlds and Otherwise, Star Songs of an Old Primate, or Ten Thousand Light-Years from Home. Tiptree's remarkable nonfiction is collected in Meet Me at Infinity.
You can read several Tiptree stories online at SciFi.com: "The Women Men Donít See," "Painwise," "Beam Us Home," "Love Is the Plan the Plan Is Death," and Raccoona Sheldon's "The Screwfly Solution."
A fan letter from Tiptree to Carol Emshwiller has been posted on the Small Beer Press website.
Karen Joy Fowler's story "What I Didn't See" is a fascinating reflection on Tiptree's "The Women Men Donít See" and the Bradleys' experiences in Africa.
National Public Radioís Andrea Seabrook interviewed me on November 12 for Weekend Edition Sunday. You can listen to the 7-minute broadcast on www.npr.org. Two footnotes: although the edit might make it sound that way, I donít think that Alice Sheldon's unmasking led directly to her suicide. And when I say her change of sex was "impractical" I wasn't thinking of sex change in general but the specific problem of living under a false identity.
There's a Wisconsin Public Radio interview with me archived here.
Jim Freund's Aug. 5, 2006, WBAI radio interview with me is archived on www.hourwolf.com.
