Welcome to Episode 154 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode, part of our Paths to Publication series, we chat with two veterans of speculative fiction who have seen the industry from many different perspectives over the years: Aaron Rosenberg and Lawrence Schoen. We look at the differences between small and larger presses, what’s involved with media tie-in work and the crossover potential between that work and original fiction, writing for games as opposed to writing literature, and many other topics, and in general we found this to be a fascinating and wide-ranging discussion. If you enjoyed it as we did, don’t forget to check back soon for a conversation recorded live with some authors at the Farpoint convention in Baltimore, another triptych, and a couple of brand-new live recording events the details of which we can’t wait to share…and if you haven’t done so already, please consider supporting our Patreon, where you can get even more content from Speculate every month.
