AISFP 213 – Glen Cook, Part 1, THE BLACK COMPANY

Enjoy Part 1 of 2 with Glen Cook from DemiCon 24. (Listen to Part 2).

Thanks to our resident reader and fan of Glen Cook, Bryan Thomas Schmidt, for coming on to do the intro for today’s episode. In Part 1’s interview, Glen discusses the beginning of his writing career and the success that he has had as his fiftieth book gets published this July. He shares about his most successful series, Chronicles of the Black Company, such as the world, conflict, characters and what set it apart as one of the early stand-out dark fantasies. He also chats about his editing process and what he learned about writing between the series that he penned. His comments about how he lets his subconscious solve the riddle at the end of his stories was mind blowing. This chat with the writing journey of a living legend is not to be missed, and an incredible blessing for me to hear in person. I didn’t realize Glen was on AISFP 173, an interview by Bryan and Brent. Make sure to check out Glen’s fiftieth, and most recent, book, Wicked Bronze Ambition: A Garrett, P.I., Novel, which comes out July 2, (tomorrow).

KaijuWorld War Kaiju –Kickstarter Campaign–

World War Kaiju is the story of an alternate history, one in which the atom bomb was never created and the ultimate weapon of mass destruction is the kaiju—fifty foot tall radioactive beasts spawned from the mysterious KAI-235 isotope. Follow the journey of one journalist as he teams up with a retired CIA operative to uncover the truth about the conspiracy behind the monsters and the men who plan to use them to dominate the world.

World War Kaiju is a tribute to the kaiju genre in all its forms (both high and low). The brainchild of sci-fi author Josh Finney, WWK is a love letter to the golden-age of kaiju cinema. It looks back to an era when the world loved atomic monsters, but feared the atomic bomb, and warps history in ways that only men in rubber suits can.


World War Kaiju is currently seeking support on Kickstarter. The campaign will be running from June to August. Team Kaiju needs a total of $15,000 to complete production of the art, and then print the book at the best quality possible. Our ultimate goal is to supply fans with a 200+ page hardcover edition of book one.
