Jerry Gordon: Literary Alchemist

Jerry Gordon

Jerry Gordon is an author and editor of short and long fiction. As an editor, his work with Maurice Broaddus in the creation of the “Dark Faith” and “Dark Faith: Invocations” anthologies have informed his knowledge and perspective on the craft and qualities of good storytelling.  Writing is own fiction – including the upcoming PRE-apocalyptic “Breaking the World” has further refined those sensibilities. This was an exceptional 20(ish) minutes where we explored the challenges of using known history in your stories, the weaving (not mashing) of genres, and the value of reviewing and critiquing other writer’s works (and be sure to check out Jerry’s Workshop Episode!)

Workshop Episode 34 (Guest Host: Maurice Broaddus)

October 23, 2012 Posted by Dave Robison

The Roundtable Podcast, Workshop Episode 34, with Maurice Broaddus and Zach RicksMaurice Broaddus – author of the “Knights of Breton Court” series, editor of the “Dark Faith” anthologies (with Jerry Gordon), crafter of worlds and tales of wonder – returns to the Big Chair at the Roundtable to help me and co-host Ryan Stevenson workshop an alt history fantasy by podcaster and Guest Writer Zach Ricks. Zach’s tale – described as “James Bond in Harry Potter’s world during the time of Downton Abby” – launches us into a frothing brainstorming session, dealing with alternate global politics, romantic triangles, nefarious plots, and a huge dragon slumbering under Yellowstone Park. Literary gold abounds! (and there’s even more to be found in Maurice’s Showcase Episode!)
