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?).
Wherein we present a round-table discussion about the middles of novels (and stories), which are often the most frustrating to writers, where one is beset by the Dark Night of Despair. Join Liars Club members Kelly Simmons, Jon McGoran, Merry Jones, Keith Strunk, and me as once again we try to save the world (of writing).
