This is a panel from Con-Jour 2010 about world building in fantasy.
For those who don’t already know, J.C. Hutchins, one of the founding fathers of podcast fiction and author of the novels “Personal Effects: Dark Arts” and “7th Son: Descent,” has decided to step away from podcasting to persue his writing in a more focused way. We here at the Dead Robot offices are saddned to hear this, but we understand why, and hope him nothing but success in the days ahead, both financially and creatively. J.C. is a friend of the show, and he will always have a place at our table whenever he wants it.
