Today, episode 61 of Speculate: The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans, features a special roundtable podcast with Pyr editorial director Lou Anders, Pyr authors Brenda Cooper (The Creative Fire) and E.C. Myers (Fair Coin and Quantum Coin), and freelance copyeditor Gabrielle Harbowy. They say:
"We set a new record for single episode participation in this show
with four distinguished guests: Brenda Cooper and E.C. Myers (authors of The Creative Fire and Quantum Coin, respectively), freelance editor Gabrielle Harbowy, and Pyr Books‘ editorial and art director Lou Anders
speak for an hour on what has made Pyr such a successful speculative
fiction imprint, where it’s been and where it’s going in the future.
This wide ranging discussion also looks at the finer points of how good
editors work with good authors, how important a good cover is to an
equally good book, and what makes Dragon Con
such a scary (and amazing!) event every year. Our shows normally don’t
run this long, but we hope you’ll agree the extra discussion we got with
all of these fine people was worth the extra time. If you like what you
hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll start a new
series of shows on the work of Joe Abercrombie. Until then, thanks as always for listening, and please continue to spread the word about the show!"
