Welcome to Episode 89 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we conclude our quadtych of shows on the work of Scott Lynch with a discussion of some of the writing techniques used in his novel The Lies of Locke Lamora, considering things like patience in writing, creating “connective tissue” within a novel, the importance of apparently insignificant details, how to portray the art of the negotiation and other writing-oriented concepts. If you like what you see and hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll be interviewing Tom Merritt, co-founder and co-host of the Sword and Laser podcast. Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word about the show!
