Episode 116 of Speculate! — Interview with Lou Anders

Welcome to Episode 116 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  In this episode we talk for the second time to Lou Anders, former editor at Pyr Books during an award-winning career and author of Frostborn, the first book in the middle grade fantasy series Thrones & Bones.  We talk about what it’s like to transition from editor to author, how Lou’s somehow managed to get even busier in his new career, and why Kermit the Frog serves as an inspiration…even in Norway!  We really enjoyed chatting with Lou again, and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.  If so, make sure to check back next week when we’ll have a special episode on podcasting in the speculative fiction field with Patrick Hester of the SF Signal Podcast and Anton Strout of the Once & Future Podcast.  Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!

Additional Note: We taped our fifth Good, Bad and Ugly segment during this interview, and it’s one of the most comprehensive ones on record!  If you’re interested in hearing it, keep in mind that it’s available to our Patreon backers of $3 or more a month–so please head over and become a patron, and thanks!

Episode 61 of Speculate! – Pyr Roundtable with Lou Anders, Brenda Cooper, Gabrielle Harbowy and E.C. Myers

Welcome to Episode 61 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans.  We set a new record for single episode participation in this show with four distinguished guests: Brenda Cooper and E.C. Myers (authors of The Creative Fire and Quantum Coin, respectively), freelance editor Gabrielle Harbowy, and Pyr Books‘ editorial and art director Lou Anders speak for an hour on what has made Pyr such a successful speculative fiction imprint, where it’s been and where it’s going in the future.  This wide ranging discussion also looks at the finer points of how good editors work with good authors, how important a good cover is to an equally good book, and what makes Dragon Con such a scary (and amazing!) event every year.  Our shows normally don’t run this long, but we hope you’ll agree the extra discussion we got with all of these fine people was worth the extra time.  If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll start a new series of shows on the work of Joe Abercrombie.  Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word about the show!
