Fifteen minutes long, because you're in a hurry, and we're not that smart.

11.44: Project in Depth, GHOST TALKERS, by Mary Robinette Kowal

Spoiler Alert! 

If you haven’t yet read Ghost Talkers, by Mary Robinette Kowal, this episode will spoil great swathes of book for you. Also, you probably won’t get as much out of it.

This week’s episode is a Project in Depth discussion focusing on Ghost Talkers, by Mary Robinette Kowal. We begin with the difference between the catalog pitch and the pitch given to editors, and how critical that distinction is. Mary then talks to us about the decisions she made while plotting the book, and the things she did in order to best execute on the story she set out to tell.

Credits: This episode was recorded aboard Oasis of the Seas by Bert Grimm, and mastered by Alex Jackson.

Thing of the week: Hex, by Thomas Oldehuveldt (and because we’ve mentioned that one recently…) Your Psychic Powers, and How to Develop Them (1920), by Hereward Carrington.
