Brainstorm #119 (Guest Host: Seanan McGuire)

Seanan returns to brainstorm at tale of superheroes, romance, and the dark side of adulation

Seanan McGuire – award-winning author, graphic novelist, podcaster, and storytelling badass – returns to the Big Chair in the APN virtual studios to apply her considerable brainstorming-fu to a tale of superheroes, romance, and the dark side of adulation.

The story is offered up by creageous Guest Writer Arthur De Leon a tale of a young woman with feeble powers caught up in events that may bring destruction down upon her city and her family. Joined once again by author, podcaster, and pop-culture aficionado, Michael R. Underwood, we explore Arthur’s tale uncovering possibilities and potential, always in search of the elusive Literary Gold!
