Welcome to Episode 96 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we interview world class game designer and founder of Lone Shark Games, Mike Selinker, about the imminent release of his game novel The Maze of Games. We get the chance to talk about some of the principles of game design, how Mike’s game fans are equally interested in the other aspects of his creative life (and what that means for creators in general), and why he wishes he had only broken his arm once (it’s a funny story). If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back for our next episode when we’ll have an interview with speculative fiction author Wesley Chu. Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!
