SFP-NOW Talks to the writers of 'Dragons of a Different Tail'

Ep. 123

For this episode, we literally chase after Dragons and learn about the brand new anthology book 'Dragons of a Different Tail', which was released earlier this week on most digital platforms and will soon be released as a physical book.

Joining me to discuss this brand new book are its creators and writers Marx Pyle, Julie Seaton Pyle, J.C. Mastro, Katharine Dow, Jeff Burns, and Sean Gibson.

Over the course of an hour, we discuss all things Dragons and unpack some of the inspirations behind the stories contained within the book. For example, Katherine Dow reveals that her Dragon story was inspired by the sport of Pigeon Racing, which is pretty big in the part of New York that she moved to. Whereas Sean Gibson talks about how his love of Victorian Literature informed his story.

Added to that. The episode also includes a fair bit of Gallows Humor as the new Covid variant known as the Omicron Dragon was let loose during the recording of the show.

If you are interested in checking out this new book you can get a hold of it at the following two links on Amazon.

SFP-Now Chats to Ada Hoffman about her latest book The Fallen

Ep. 121
After a month away. We're back and we get the ball rolling with an epic interview with Science Fiction novelist Ada Hoffman.During this chat. The writer gives us the lowdown on how she got into writing and her personal journey to becoming a published Science Fiction writer. Her debut novel 'The Outside' wowed readers when it was released back in 2018 and it looks very much like that book's sequel The Fallen is going to do very much the same. Ada talks us through some of the characters and storylines of the book to give those that haven't checked the books out yet a small taste of what they can expect. She also talks about how her decision to make her main character an Autistic scientist surprised her in a few ways and chats a little bit about her creative process as a writer saying that she usually has the beginning, middle, and end of her books figured out in advance of writing the story. Being that a few of us here at SciFiPulse Radio is on the Autism Spectrum we also asked Ada her thoughts on representation in the publishing industry as well as representation in film and television. And Ada also talked about some of the ways in which she tries to encourage writers with autism by reviewing their stories on her website. So to hear all of what was said.
