Welcome back for Episode 54 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we conclude our quadtych of shows on the work of Saladin Ahmed with a look at some of the specific writing techniques used in his debut novel Throne of the Crescent Moon, focusing on narrative pace and character description, misdirection, filling in the world, character development, and cultural portrayals. If you enjoy what you hear, don’t forget to check back soon for a series of short interviews from GenCon and the Wellspring workshop. Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word about the show!
