Workshop Episode 96 (Guest Host: Michael R. Underwood)

Michael R. Underwood – author of “The Shootout Solution” and the soon-to-be-released “The Absconded Ambassador” of the fabulous Genrenauts novella series – returns to the Big Chair at the Roundtable to lend his superior brainstorming skills to a tale of a beleaguered squire apprenticed to a senile ex-hero (or so he appears).

The tale is offered up by Jay Swanson – creageous Guest Writer and author/creator of transmedia experience titled “Into the Nanten: The Record of My Exile” – is a subtle story, a familiar narrative woven with intriguing threads that give it a unique flavor and makes it a truly unique challenge. With co-host Giles Hash (of the delightful Beyond the Trope podcast) adding his aesthetic to the workshop, we navigate the character and plot nuances of Jay’s narrative, teasing new dimensions and possibilities from the idea and liberally strewing the virtual studio with Literary Gold.
