Episode 174 of Speculate!–Jason M. Hough Author Discussion

Welcome to Episode 174 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we start by explaining a bit of what’s been going on with our schedule, and what’s on tap for the future, before moving on to our chat with author Jason M. Hough.  Jason has been on the show before, but in this episode we focus on his (and co-author K.C. Alexander‘s) Mass Effect: Andromeda–Nexus Uprising novel, looking at the difference between original and tie-in work, working in the Mass Effect world, collaboration, and why Thane is obviously the best companion character in the ME series (okay, this might have been Greg’s suggestion, but still).  If you like what you hear, remember to check back soon for our next show, and please head to our Patreon page and support us at the $5 or higher level to get access to even more content.  Thanks for supporting us here and via our Patreon, and thanks as always for listening to and spreading the word about the show!

Episode 123 of Speculate!–Interview with Jason M. Hough

Welcome to Episode 123 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we talk to Jason M. Hough, author of the highly successful Dire Earth Cycle, about his writing process, the appeal of NaNoWriMo, and how “Scalzi writes Firefly” got him a contract with Del Rey–even if he doesn’t think his writing is much like Scalzi’s.  We also get to talk a bit about the current state of science fiction and how to maintain your equilibrium when success comes your way.  This was an interesting conversation with someone who’s thought a lot about the business, and we hope you find it as enlightening as we did.  If so, don’t forget to check back for our next show when we’ll begin a new triptych of shows on the work of Kameron Hurley; until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!

Additional Note: We’ve got another Good, Bad and Ugly segment from this interview, and we think it’s a particularly good one–if you’d like to hear it, remember it’s available to our Patreon backers, so head over there and become a patron–and thanks so much for the support!
