Welcome to Episode 100 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we reflect for a bit on the hundred shows we’ve done over the past three plus years before concluding our triptych of shows on the work of Garth Nix and Sean Williams with a discussion of some of the writing techniques used in their novel Troubletwisters; we consider things like layered worldbuilding, methods of designing magic systems, developing bridge characters and creating initial conditions, along with other writing-oriented concepts. If you like what you see and hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll be interviewing Peter V. Brett and Brent Weeks on new graphic novel projects coming soon from both authors. Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word about the show!
