Welcome to Episode 149 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we talk about a new publisher with a new approach to serialized fiction, SerialBox Publishing, with its founder Julian Yap and two of its well-known authors, Ellen Kushner and Max Gladstone. Julian and his veteran authors discuss the reasons this approach is finding favor in the market, what challenges and benefits arise from writing (and directing) serialized fiction in Ellen’s Tremontaine and Max’s Bookburners, and what the future holds for this format. All three guests convey the interest and value of SerialBox really well during the discussion, and we hope you enjoyed learning about it as much as we did. If so, don’t forget to check back soon for a discussion with Elizabeth Bear and Daryl Gregory in our Paths to Publication series–and if you haven’t already, please check out our Patreon and consider becoming a patron so you can get access to even more content and we can continue to bring you analysis of the best authors, editors, and artists in speculative fiction.
