Author Caroline Stevermer has written many beloved fantasy books, including A College of Magics and the Cecilia and Kate series with Patricia Wrede. She joins us to discuss her work and her passions as both a reader and a writer.
Author quotes? Who said what, and do you agree with them? Chris, George and Chia indulge in a muddled, ill-defined quiz show to test their knowledge of writerly sound bites and ability to follow instructions. Spoiler: chaos ensues.
Happy holidays! A few weeks back we announced our self-imposed reading challenges for the end of the year. Well, now it’s time to pay the piper. Cath, George, Chia and Chris reveal their thoughts on the books selected: Double Whammy: A Davis Way Crime Caper, The Bourne Identity, Say Yes to the Marquess, Uprooted, Silver on the Road, The Dispossessed and The Ipcress File.
As we sail into our third year (!), we’d like to thank you, our loyal listeners. Strap in for even more fun next year!
Author Molly Tanzer joins us to discuss her latest novel, Creatures of Will and Temper. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We also delve into her past books like Vermilion, editing vs. writing, cocktails, baking and Victorian oddities. Any fan of Great British Bake-off is welcome at UN Headquarters!
We’re at it again with our sporadic Picks of the Week! They range from books to TV to movies to comics this week: The Punisher, FIYAH magazine, All the Birds in the Sky, The House of Laughing Windows and many, many others. Stocking stuffers, one and all.
Much excitement at UN Headquarters! Earlier this year, Chia and Cath devoted an episode to their love of the Peter Grant/Rivers of London series. Hold onto your seats, because author Ben Aaronovitch joins us from across the pond! We embarrass him with too many Doctor Who questions, and he shares details about his writing process and plans for the future. Can one show contain all this merriment?
Authors Spotlight? Author Spotlights? However you slice it, this week is twice the flavor with the one-two punch of spec fic’s ultimate power couple, Elizabeth Bear and Scott Lynch! The dynamic duo join us for an anything-goes chat about fecal escapades, tidy trilogies, roleplaying dream teams, perhaps even news of a new release! (Spoiler alert: Bear’s The Stone in the Skull is out now!)
