AISFP 166 – Podcaster Panel: J. Daniel Sawyer, John Mierau and Indiana Jim

‘They’ll stand amongst the corpses of the beloved.’ That’s what he said at the end, though I never considered myself one of the beloved, not at the beginning. I was simply a terrified woman then, but now… now I understand. Maybe I wish I didn’t. Eldon Thompson raves, “Readers with the fortitude to take the plunge stand to be rewarded with what may go down as one of the most ambitious, redefining forays into epic fantasy of all time.”

  5. Forgot to post earlier but I love shows like this. The best business education I’ve received anywhere. I have to say that next to the shows with Stackpole as the guest these are my “go-to” episodes when I’m trying to make business decisions concerning my work.

  6. These are some good dudes.
