James Enge, author of A Guile of Dragons (A Tournament of Shadows, Book 1), is a guest of Adventures in SciFi Publishing as part of an indepth, two part interview. Here is Part One and Part Two (and the episodes are available for download on iTunes).
They discuss Jack Vance, writing political fiction without pushing political
agendas, how his University colleagues view his novels, writing
“Philosophical romance shot through with elements of horror and
morbidity,” the potentially negative impact of higher education on
imagination, writing for popular appeal and much more.
