We are delighted to welcome Peter Orullian – author of the Vault of Heaven series, including “The Unremembered” and the newly released “Trial of Intentions” – back to the Big Chair at the Roundtable to lend his considerable storytelling mojo to a story concept brainstorm of stellar proportions.
The concept is offered up by creageous Guest Writer, Keath Marx, and is a bit unconventional in the history of the Roundtable. Keath brings us (and by “us” I mean myself, Peter, and the splendid Lauren “Scribe” Harris) a setting (scifi Earth of the distant future) and a cast of characters and invites us to frolic in his concept for a bit. And frolic we do, exploring (and subverting) some scifi tropes, unraveling some intriguing story knots, and generally knocking loose a pile of Literary Gold. Feel free to join in! (and then circle back to check out Peter’s “20 Minutes with…” episode. Fraught with writerly goodness!).
