Episode 162 – An Interview with Jonathan R. Rose

Jonathan R. Rose describes himself as “painfully cynical”, and takes you on a journey to What If, from dark urban fantasy to just a little dystopian future sci fi that explores how humans relate to one another.

From north to south, he has ranged across the continent and brought back flavors from each culture to present his own spin. Jonathan says, “You can live off writing!

We explore some of our favorite crime novels, the genre at large as part of mystery, and pick apart the differences between detective novels (tending to support law & order) vs caper novels (tending to be anti-establishment or radical) and the exceptions. Crime and caper novels can be historic or modern, and cross every genre. What do you need to think about when writing crime stories? We have some ideas. … Continue…Episode 102 – Crime and Euphemisms

Episode 98 – Interview with David Drake

David Drake picked up writing, so he says, as a therapy for his time spent riding tanks around Vietnam and Cambodia. But what started as short stories ended up as a brilliant and far-reaching career that explored historic fantasy, horror, sci fi, and everything in between. Whether you love Roman legions, Byzantine politics, or Space Opera that combines the spirits of each, Drake has something for you – all his characters are exquisitely human and complex. … Continue…Episode 98 – Interview with David Drake
