Welcome back for Episode 38 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we present our third artist interview, this one with giant of the field Todd Lockwood. Todd, who did the cover for Brad’s upcoming book The Straits of Galahesh, gives us a look into what inspires him about the field of speculative fiction, why he still doesn’t mind being known as the “dragon guy” in some circles and how the field has changed over his long career–and why the chance to paint Stephen Colbert as a paladin was too good to pass up. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll head back to the world of literature to interview another major player in speculative fiction, Brandon Sanderson. Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!
