Episode 7 of Speculate! – Adam Paquette Artist Interview

Welcome to Episode 7 of Speculate!  The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we interview artist Adam Paquette, whose work in the speculative fiction, gaming and other fields is both broad and deep.  Adam discusses the creative process generally and specifically in his own work, focusing for a good part of the interview on how he developed his cover for Brad’s forthcoming novel The Winds of Khalakovo.  If you enjoy the conversation, remember to check back in two weeks for Episode 8, where we’ll begin our next sequence of shows with a discussion of the work of N.K. Jemisin.  Thanks as always for tuning in, and please continue to spread the word about the show!

Update from Brad: We’ve posted some of Adam’s wonderful artwork in our art gallery. Also, in the interview, Adam mentioned the early sketches of the cover art for The Winds of Khalakovo. I’ve posted the sketches and preliminary art he created for Winds on my blog.

Episode 4 of Speculate!

Hey everyone,

Welcome back for Episode 4 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we start a new sequence of discussion/interview/discussion shows concerning the work of Nebula and World Fantasy Award winning author Kij Johnson, in particular focusing on three stories: 26 monkeys, also the abyss, Ponies, and Spar.  If you enjoy the discussion, don’t miss next week’s show in which we interview the author herself.  And as usual, thanks for spreading the word about the show!

Note from Greg:  It occurs to me that I haven’t mentioned the details about our musical intro and outro for the show yet–the song is called “Yellow Wood,” from my band The Road‘s debut album Drift, released about four years ago.  Our second album, Monomyth, was just officially released in December (a concept album dealing with a fantastic journey, of course!)–so if you like the song and progressive rock in general, please check the band out at www.thebandtheroad.com.  /shameless plug off.  :)
