US science fiction and fantasy publisher Tor is to launch their new SFF podcast program from the 65th World Science Fiction Convention in Japan.

Tor Books will be podcasting direct from the 65th World Science Fiction Convention in Yokohama, Japan, from August 30th through September 4th, 2007.

Marking the first time that Worldcon has ever taken place in Japan, Tor publisher Tom Doherty and senior editor Patrick Nielsen Hayden will podcast directly from the convention. This podcasting event will kick off Tor's new podcasting program, which will continue with regularly scheduled podcasts beginning September 12th.

The daily podcasts from the convention will cover the events there, as well as interviews with authors and editors and perhaps a few surprise guests.

One podcast episode will feature an interview with Star Trek and Heroes star George Takei, speaking on his life and career. Another podcast will join Tor publisher Tom Doherty and author Larry Niven while they discuss a variety of topics over lunch in Tokyo.

These podcasts will be available for download from iTunes, Yahoo, and Google and through RSS-and individuals can also tune in to them directly from the Tor website at
