And lo the Gods of the internet did smile on me and I was able to record an interview with Joe Abercrombie and nothing went wrong. Shortly after, as in the second I hung up the internet collapsed but hey maybe I should have used two chickens (for the sacrifice).
Any how here is the blurb for the show and as per usual you can play direct from the player below or use the download link.
This week Sean interviews International Best Selling Fantasy novelist Joe Abercrombie. Joe was on a whirlwind tour of Australia promoting his latest workRed Country.
In this interview Sean asks Joe about the research required for writing a western and Joe is adamant it had nothing to do with the Whisky Death Match posts at his website. They discuss the recent industry focussed Genrecon and when its a good idea to use maps in your fantasy novel.
Sean possibly starts a blood feud with the Coode Street Podcast by paraphrasing and taking out of context something that Gary and Jonathan probably never said about Fantasy. But Joe's answer is informative and witty. They talk film and the transference of skillsets needed in documentary film editing to writing. Finally, Joe lets slip about his up and coming Zombie Romance decology.
Joe can be found on his website.
