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.
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).
My good friend the amazingly inventive Michael Swanwick joins us on the LIARS CLUB ODDCAST this week to discuss the craft of writing science fiction and fantasy, his fascination with his con artists Darger and Surplus (and with writing short fiction) and even a bit of musing on the works of George R. R. Martin. Don’t miss a great interview with this multiple-award-winning author!
