Episode 66 of Speculate! — Peter V. Brett and Myke Cole Author Interview, Part One

TheDaylightWar FortressFrontier

Welcome to Episode 66 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we present the first half of an interview with authors Peter V. Brett and Myke Cole, long time friends and successful speculative fiction authors both with new books due out within the next month.  We hadn’t expected the interview to run as long as it did, but we found what they had to say about Dungeons and Dragons, the ups and downs of a writing career, and the impact of September 11th on their lives and work so interesting that we just had to keep the tape running.  If you enjoy what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll post the second half of the interview.  Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word!

    Nice interview. ConFusion was great, this was my first year at that particular Con and I met Myke and Peter at last year’s Balticon and they are both great guys.

    Oh, and reddit is a really good community that I highly recommend.

      Thanks, Michael. Agreed about both ConFusion and Reddit. I’m a bit new to Reddit, but it seems like a great community to be in for any fantasy fan.

    I look forward to the second half of the interview.

    Well done, all around. I find how two friends, from the same blender, can go in distinctly different directions in genre.

    Thanks, Paul, and totally agree–and both of them affected by a major event (9/11) which sent them in different directions as writers. There’s more discussion of that very thing in the second half of the interview.
