Episode 241 – Kill ‘Em All!

This week the robots discuss the topic of killing off characters. Whether they’re primary or a bit player, characters are going to die, but the real questions are when, why, and is it a good idea? We hope you enjoy the conversation.

Also, Eliyanna will soon be giving birth to her twin boys, and we send her our very best wishes, as well as a few needed gifts. If you’d like to send her a gift as well, she is registered at Amazon.

Episode 240 – Reviewing All Fast And Fury

Justin’s back! This week we review David Weber’s IN FURY BORN, talking about what we liked and didn’t, as well as what we learned about the craft of writing through reading it. We hope you enjoy!

And with that book down, we have a new one up to read and review? This time it’s Paul’s pick, and not surprisingly he has gone with a horror title. We’re going to give Terry another try and liking Stephen King, so the next book we’ll discuss is his second book, SALEM’S LOT. Read and review along with us!

This week’s promo – HAPAX, a forthcoming novel from Dragon Moon Press in October, written by Katie Bryski. It will also be released as a podcast starting in September.
