Rocket Talk!

A few weeks ago, I recorded an episode of Rocket Talk, the Tor.com podcast, with host Justin Landon. We talked about Planescape, the New Weird, SHIELD AND CROCUS (as a new weird/superhero mashup), and then we had a bonus discussion about urban fantasy).

You can listen to the episode here.

Since I didn’t get to mention it during the chat, I want to plug a couple works that I think are worth looking at as part of a broader discussion of the New Weird and its effects:

THE CRAFT SEQUENCE (starting with THREE PARTS DEAD) by Max Gladstone
THE MIRROR EMPIRE by Kameron Hurley

and because it doesn’t get talked up enough, THE ETCHED CITY by KJ Bishop.

Happy listening!

  1. I loved THE ETCHED CITY. That book deserved a much larger audience than it received.

  2. Why is my avatar Jeff Patterson?

    • I don’t know. WordPress (which powers my site) seems to have a weird manner of determining avatars for comments.

      Maybe this means you get to steal his power?
