  3. D'oh! I forgot to include a link to my NaNoWriMo site profile for the last show notes.

  4. Talk about timing! I just finished Fatal Revenant! Great book - really enjoyed listening to these two writers.

  5. Thanks, this was one of the best interviews you've done so far. I love Donaldson's work, now I'm doing to try Stirling's after hearing.

  6. Wow. Great show, guys.

  7. Was there not a B show last week?

  8. I am going to be starting my NaNoWriMo novel in about 20 minutes. I am writing an idea I had for a few months.

  9. Paul,

    Nope. Consider it an early "trick" 🙂

  10. It was a blast talking to both of these great authors and meeting them both. It was another wonderful experience and I'm glad folks enjoy it as much as I did hogging all the questions!

  11. Simon Perry says

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Now half-way through 'A Meeting at Corvalis' by S M Stirling - ordered the trilogy plus the Island in the Sea of Time series straight after hearing the show. Cant tell you how much I have enjoyed the series. Not sure how I'll be able to last 3 or 4 years for the follow-on series to finish!
