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).
Award-winning journalist & non-fiction author Stephen Fried and novelist Diane Ayres have been married for thirty years. Find out how they work together and apart in this perfect relationship, who edits who, how Stephen came to collaborate with Patrick J. Kennedy, and how he coined the term “fashionista” (now in dictionaries everywhere), all on this week’s Oddcast.
My longtime friend and award-winning science fiction author, John Kessel, joins us on the Liars Club Oddcast to talk about his novel, just out, THE MOON & THE OTHER, a continuation of tales he’s written about an extraordinary society on the moon. The interview, like all LC Oddcasts, is available as well through iTunes (where you can subscribe), and through Stitcher. -gf
