Podcast - Cory Doctorow Interview

So here is one of those surprises we've been planning!

The king-of-cool, Cory Doctorow, graciously agreed to an interview for Oort-Cloud (expertly handled by our very own Rick Adler).

Cory talks about writing science fiction, including what he's been working on lately, and shares some of the ways he's learned to keep writing despite a very busy schedule. He also has some thoughts about podcasting and about the changes that are coming for the world of science-fiction publishing. We hope you enjoy it!

Here is the .mp3 file (8.5 Mb, 37 minutes).

Discussion: Reaching out with podcasts?

The New York Times just had an article about writers creating audio performances of their work on free podcasts as a way of attracting new readers. I noted Cory Doctorow's podcast in a previous post, and this article mentions other writers who are giving this approach a try.

Brazen Hearts, Fresh, On Sticks: Chapter One

Chick Lit takes a critical hit. Josie is your typical young goblin, selling freshly grilled human hearts outside the mall, trying to survive her ruthless family, and pining after that dreamy hobgoblin who just stomped into town. Each week (ha) in this podcast, she describes part of her story to you, another human whose heart she will soon be selling on a stick.
