Voicemail: Lejon sheds some background on the book Tales Before Narnia, and Stackpole expands with some more reading he'd done about the collection. And that leads to a discussion about the use and meaning of "inspired by".

Listener review: Mike liked this review so much, he's running it a second time! Hear Princess Eve's review of the audiobook of Orson Scott Card's Empire.
Discussion: Mike Stackpole brings up the lawsuit that J. K. Rowling brought against the creator of the Harry Potter Lexicon, which began as a fan website and is now being published as a book (she's suing because of the book, but loved the content of the website).
The discussion runs through authors' rights and public domain intellectual property and fair use, and a lot more.
