Richard Butner on The Oddcast

This week on the Oddcast we talk with short-story author Richard Butner, who describes himself as a writer, occasional performer, and shipwrecked jester.  He runs the annual Sycamore Hill Writers’ Conference, an extraordinarily successful and long-running peer-to-peer workshop hidden deep in the mountains of western North Carolina. Some of his unusual fiction is available in a collection from Small Beer Press.
