Garth Nix stops into the studio to talk with us about his new book Across The Wall. We love getting authors in our studio, especially ones from down under!

After that, Dave Elliott tells us about Field Guide for Monsters. Be sure to tune it for this one, it may just save your life.

After reviewing the many comments from our listeners regarding the Library Segment, we have one last adjustment. Hope you all like this, but Michael is still not reading!

    Well done on the interview with Dave Elliott.
    It actually caused me to have to check my watch to see if it was April the 1st.

    OK, I'm listening to your cover-to-cover podcast and the
    interview with Dave Elliot was interesting to say the least.
    I don't know how either of you kept a straight face and
    managed to complete the interview without cracking up
    in laughter. It is scary that he actually believes that stuff.

    If your in New York I'll buy you a beer and I'll take you
    around my work, the American Museum of Natural History and the Rose Center, where I'm an astrophysicist if your
    interested.

    Keep up the entertaining podcasts.

    Cheers

    Dave

  4. Well David Z, to answer your question, we didn't. Several times during the interview we all broke out into laughter, but that is what post-edit is for.
    Dave Elliot did a great job keeping a straight face through the segment, but he had us rolling several times.
    Hope you all enjoyed the interview, it was a lot of fun to record.

  5. Wow. I am a real big Abhorsen fan-that is "Ab-horse-en" fan.
    What I wouldn't give to be able to interview Garth Nix. He is quite possibly the most promising author I have read, because his books are all original.

  6. I am also a big Abhoresen fan, but I was disappointed with "Across the Wall", I was expecting more stories about the Old Kingdom and instead the book had only one. The other stories where fine, but not as good as the Abhoresen trilogy.
