Rodman about writing novels and screenplays, adapting novels to screenplays, and leading the WGA, not to mention the true, secret history of how a small bookshop in Paris led him to write his new novel, The Great Eastern, wherein Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo battles Melville’s Captain Ahab.

Robert Crais, the Epitome of Cool on the Oddcast

My longtime pal, New York Times Bestseller Robert Crais, author of the Award-winning Elvis Cole thrillers (his latest is THE WANTED, out in just a few days), graces the Oddcast this week, wherein he reveals a love for science fiction, and describes how intensely he dedicated himself to writing when he moved to L.A. and broke into television, working on such acclaimed shows as Hill Street Blues and Cagney & Lacey—a crash-course on immersion from this Grandmaster-Award-winning author.
