Ada Palmer – scholar, composer, and author of the astonishing and richly-acclaimed “Too Like the Lightning” (and so much more) – returns to the Big Chair at the Roundtable to lend her spectacular brainstorming skills to a tale of political oppression, intrigue, and Lovecraftian deities.

The tale is offered up by creageous Guest Writer, Timothy Neideritter (one of the the rare individuals who have been Knighted by the Roundtable and earned the right to return to the Writer’s Chair), a tale of a young woman who enters the subtle and savage realm of royal politics only to have to deal with the arrival of not one but TWO otherworldly powers upon her planet.
The fabulous Melanie Meadors returns as co-host and together we dive into brainstorming froth, immersing ourselves in the politics, religion and magic of Tim’s world, working through the nuances of character arcs and the motivations of Cthonic deities, ultimately unearthing a veritable hoard of Literary Gold. There’s plenty to go around… click that PLAY button and claim yours! (and if you missed it, you gotta check out Ada’s superb Showcase Episode!)

While I’m flattered, the Guest Writer isn’t myself.
