Welcome back for Episode 13 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we interview editor extraordinaire Jonathan Strahan on his editing career, his philosophy on constructing an anthology and his work with Night Shade Books‘ newest story collection, Eclipse Four. We even get a chance to talk to him about podcasting, which we hope isn’t too crazily meta for the show! If you like what you hear, remember to check back next week when we’ll interview James Patrick Kelly and Michael Swanwick on their respective stories for Eclipse Four. As usual, thanks for listening to (and spreading the word about) the show!

Welcome to Episode 11 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we talk about the life of a bestselling fantasy author with, well, a bestselling fantasy author! Pat Rothfuss, whose sequel to his acclaimed debut novel The Name of the Wind, The Wise Man’s Fear, has hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List, checks in with us to discuss the development and progress of his career.
