Episode 154 of Speculate!–Roundtable Discussion with Aaron Rosenberg and Lawrence Schoen

     

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.  Thanks for supporting us here and via our Patreon page, and thanks as always for listening to and spreading the word about the show!

Episode 78 of Speculate! — Writing for Games Discussion with John Helfers and Aaron Rosenberg

                    

Welcome back for Episode 78 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode, taped live at the Origins convention in Columbus, Ohio (we apologize for the somewhat subpar audio), we look at the connections between writing and gaming with two veterans in the field, John Helfers and Aaron Rosenberg.  During the discussion we touch on how to get into writing for games, both face to face and computer-oriented, and consider whether the lines between narrative in games and narrative in stories have begun to blur–and if so, what the implications might be.  If you enjoy the conversation, make sure to check out more of John and Aaron’s work, and don’t forget to check back for our next episode, a discussion about book blogging in the speculative fiction field with Justin Landon of Staffer’s Book Review.  Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word!
