15.45: Worldbuilding Fantasy, with Patrick Rothfuss
Your Hosts: Dan, Mary Robinette, and Howard, with Patrick Rothfuss
Pat joins us for a discussion of worldbuilding, in which we field a couple of challenging questions from readers. Here are the questions!
- How do you create timeless urban fantasy?
- How do you create a compelling secondary world fantasy without leaning on a complex magic system?
We ran a bit long with this one, but we have no regrets. Because compelling. And maybe timeless.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Bert Grimm, and mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Just change one thing, and then follow the permutations.
Thing of the week: Something Wicked This Way Comes, by Ray Bradbury.
