I’ve known author William Lashner, author of the Victor Carl series and more, for a long time. He’s always a pleasure to talk with, full of knowledge, passion, humor, and words of wisdom to shake up the writing process. He also is the 2nd person in a row that the Philadelphia Liars Club has interviewed for the Oddcast who is a lover of Melville’s Moby Dick. Find out why this week on the 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
Janet Benton talks about writing and researching her debut novel Lilli De Jong, and tells us why Kirkus Reviews called it a “monumental achievement.” Author Jamie Ford adds:“A powerful, authentic voice for a generation of women whose struggles were erased from history—a heart-smashing debut that completely satisfies.”
She has worked at magazines and newspapers and taught at four colleges, as well as running the writer’s workshop The Word Studio. Find out about all this and more on the LIARS CLUB ODDCAST (and check out Jon McGoran, Bill Russell, and a host of others).
