Article and Interview by Dave Thompson

For the general public, Tim Pratt is one of the best kept secrets in fantasy fiction. I say this not just as someone who loves to read (and listen!) to Tim’s work, but as someone who who has bought his stories to be featured at PodCastle, a podcast run by Anna Scwhind and myself. Tim creates interesting characters who

Interview: Brandon Sanderson on (primarily) The Alloy of Law and narrator Michael Kramer

Posted on 2012-03-23 at 14:45 by Sam

Today I’m absolutely ecstatic to post my interview with bestselling author Brandon Sanderson:


I first met and spoke to Sanderson in September 2010, when he came to Raleigh’s Quail Ridge Books for a reading and signing event for The Way of Kings: Book One of The Stormlight Archive, and one of the topics we got onto happened to be audiobooks. Fast forward to the fall of 2011 and the release of The Alloy of Law: A Mistborn Novel (which I reviewed here on the Audible SF/F blog) and it felt like it was time to

Welcome to 2012! I’m hoping to provide an interview every Monday this year, ranging from authors, to narrators, editors, engineers, reviewers, and more.

To start this series off I couldn’t think of a better interviewee than Bob Reiss, one of the best audiobooks reviewers around at his blog The Guilded Earlobe, which I’ve followed since stumbling onto it last summer.

Q: I was thinking about setting a goal to do 52 (some short!) interviews in 2012, whether it’s authors, narrators, reviewers, whatever. And I

Saladin Ahmed broke the news on Twitter last Thursday, retweeted by his publisher DAW Books, that Brilliance Audio had purchased the audio rights to his debut novel, Throne of the Crescent Moon (hardcover, Feb 7, 2012):

And a day later, Ahmed posted the first chapter of the novel on his blog. As a fan both of Ahmed’s short fiction (which I’ve enjoyed catching at PodCastle, and which garnered him enough votes to be a finalist for both a Nebula Award and the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer) and of
