Episode 127 of Speculate! — Roundtable Discussion with Brian McClellan and Myke Cole

                         

Welcome to Episode 127 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode, we talk fantasy, military, and writing business with authors (and former Speculate guests) Brian McClellan and Myke Cole as we look at writing trilogies, what a civilian author does or doesn’t “owe” to a military person when writing fantasy with a military slant, and what engages and excites Brian and Myke (and what doesn’t) about the business–and why they’re so excited about their new books, The Autumn Republic and Gemini Cell, respectively. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check out our next episode, when we’ll take a look at speculative fiction poetry–and of course there are plenty of other shows to come.   As a reminder, our Good, Bad and Ugly segments (including the one from Brian and Myke here!) are only available to our Patreon supporters, so please head over there to hear more about our guests and their work.  Thanks to everyone who’s helped out so far, and thanks as always for listening to and spreading the word about the show!

Additional Note:  Nominations for the 2015 Hugo Awards are now open (for one final day!), and Speculate is eligible to be nominated in the Best Fancast category.  If you’re a voting member of either last year’s, this year’s or next year’s Worldcon, you’re eligible to make Hugo nominations, and we’d be honored (and grateful) if you would nominate us for Best Fancast.  Please go here for more details, spread the word, and thanks so much as always for your support!

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!
