Show Notes:

  • Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in AISFP land.
  • N.K. Jemisin joins Moses in two parts from the World Fantasy Convention to discuss her novels both current and forthcoming. Also covered: pajama parties, drinking from sippy cups, her writing journey, writing from the perspective of a god, how trilogies work, and much more.
  • News: We discuss Brent Week’s blog post regarding the expectations between authors and readers, in particular focusing on the Neil Gaiman’s comment that George R.R. Martin is not his readers’ bitch.
  • Bonus: How can you have that discussion and not play John Anealio’s great song on the topic.
  • Feedback: Victoria calls in to discuss Mike Stackpole’s “house slave” blog and reminds us to focus on the message rather than the presentation. And Paul clarifies what happened with the DreamHaven bookstore.
