Journalist, novelist, radio personality, social activist, and radio-drama creator Solomon Jones joins us on the Liars Club Oddcast. Brilliant wit, conversation, and knowledge shared by a terrific Philadelphia author and personality.
This week’s Oddcast, the last recorded at the Philadelphia Writers Conference, features Liars Club member, novelist Dennis Tafoya, author of such tremendously well-wrought novels as The Wolves of Fairmount Park and The Poor Boy’s Game; and Liars Club associate, Edward Pettit, Philadelphia’s specialist on Edgar Allan Poe, and now programming director for the Rosenbach (pronounced “Ro’-sen-back“, which everybody gets wrong) Museum, where you can see original manuscripts and materials by Bram Stoker (they have “Dracula” in manuscript form no less) and Joyce and even Maurice Sendak. A freeform discussion about writing and books and mystery.
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!
