This week the Liars Club Oddcast welcomes Carla Spataro, award-winning short fiction writer, director of the MFA in Creative Writing program at Rosemont College, and editorial director and co-publisher of Philadelphia Stories magazine and PS Books.
A few weeks ago, I posted a link to a review of the second half of the Shadowbridge duology, Lord Tophet.
And now out of the blue comes a somewhat late-to-the-party review of my short story collection from Golden Gryphon, Attack of the Jazz Giants & Other Stories. I have to thank reviewer Chris East for his very kind words as regards the stories contained therein. Going to go strut around and drink whiskey now (I know, I know—how’s that different from any other night?).
On the Oddcast this week, delightful novelist Rachel Pastan (Alena, Lady of the Snakes) talks about the importance of structure, using first readers, and perseverance.
