Episode 137 of Speculate! — Interview with Ed Greenwood

Welcome to Episode 137 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we talk to the inimitable Ed Greenwood, author, editor, creator of the Forgotten Realms, and head of the new publishing company The Ed Greenwood Group, about his new work and his new venture.  As usual, Ed amazes with his inexhaustible energy and enthusiasm, and his plans are exciting, to say the least–plus we get to hear his thoughts about how publishing has changed over the past ten years, and why now is the perfect time for TEGG.  We hope you enjoyed the chat as much as we did!  If so, don’t forget to check back for our next set of shows, interviews with some of the luminaries at Gen Con 2015.  And if you haven’t already, please check out our Patreon and consider becoming a patron so we can continue to bring you analysis of the best authors, editors and artists in speculative fiction.

Episode 95 of Speculate! — Interview with Myke Cole

Welcome to Episode 95 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we return to interviewing others with a new interview of Myke Cole, author of the Shadow Ops series and its just released third book, Breach Zone.  This is the second time Myke has been on the show, and he’s just as entertaining this time around; we cover topics like his love of conventions, why Dungeons and Dragons was (and is) so important to him, how he has developed as a writer during the course of the Shadow Ops series and why he always writes “scared”…and why, when depression or tragedy hits, his policy is to feel sorry for himself, pick himself up, sit down and get right back to work.  As always, Myke is an engaging guest, and we hope you’ll find the discussion as interesting as we did.  If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll have an interview up with the game designer Mike Selinker, author of the new game novel The Maze of Games.  Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!

GREG’S NOTE:  Just a friendly reminder that the Kickstarter for my graphic novel Icarus is about halfway finished, and with two weeks to go, you still have time to get on board!  We’ve got a lot of great stretch goal authors, artists and even game designers, and the more people that get involved the bigger and better the project will get.  So please head here, back Icarus and spread the word–and thanks so much!

Episode 66 of Speculate! — Peter V. Brett and Myke Cole Author Interview, Part One

TheDaylightWar FortressFrontier

Welcome to Episode 66 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we present the first half of an interview with authors Peter V. Brett and Myke Cole, long time friends and successful speculative fiction authors both with new books due out within the next month.  We hadn’t expected the interview to run as long as it did, but we found what they had to say about Dungeons and Dragons, the ups and downs of a writing career, and the impact of September 11th on their lives and work so interesting that we just had to keep the tape running.  If you enjoy what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll post the second half of the interview.  Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word!

Episode 38 of Speculate! – Todd Lockwood Artist Interview

Welcome back for Episode 38 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we present our third artist interview, this one with giant of the field Todd Lockwood.  Todd, who did the cover for Brad’s upcoming book The Straits of Galahesh, gives us a look into what inspires him about the field of speculative fiction, why he still doesn’t mind being known as the “dragon guy” in some circles and how the field has changed over his long career–and why the chance to paint Stephen Colbert as a paladin was too good to pass up.  If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll head back to the world of literature to interview another major player in speculative fiction, Brandon Sanderson.  Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!
