Welcome to Episode 132 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode, we talk about speculative fiction and games–and the increasingly blurred lines between them–with authors Carrie Patel and Josh Vogt, both with game and novel writing credits. We consider the ways writing for games and writing for novels are linked, how to navigate the treacherous waters from idea to publication, and the ways authors (and how we see authors) are changing. We really enjoyed chatting with two people who like books and games as much as we do, and we hope you find it as interesting as we did. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back soon when we’ll have a discussion with John Anealio and Peter Orullian about speculative fiction and music. And don’t forget that our Good, Bad and Ugly segments (including the one from Carrie and Josh here) are only available to our Patreon supporters, so please head over there to hear more about our guests and their work. Thanks for supporting us here and via our Patreon page, and thanks as always for listening to and spreading the word about the show!
