Comic Book Outsiders Episode 70

February 3, 2010

This episode is one of our book club episodes, where we discuss the recent selection, Empire in Black and Gold by Adrian Tchaikovsky and announce our next selection. Before that Scott and Steve get into some News and Reviews, talking about the ending of some TV shows, the return of some old favourites and the arrival of a couple of new ones.

After that we get into a discussion about the fantasy genre and the changes it has gone through in the last few decades. We also talk about how it is perceived by those less familiar with the genre and how diverse and popular it has become. Scott and Steve talk briefly about Empire and offer their opinions before our interview with Adrian Tchaikovsky. We discuss his background as a writer and reader of fantasy, his influences and we pose your questions to Adrian about the book, and also talk about the future of the series and his forthcoming appearances. Adrian will be appearing next weekend at the SFX Weekender, a whole weekend of genre talks, guest signings and workshops, as well as at other venues in the UK in conjunction with the launch of the 4th book in the Shadows of the Apt series, Salute the Dark which is out next week. For more information about the series and his appearances visit his website www.shadowsoftheapt.com
