Workshop Episode 44 (Guest Host: Gareth Powell)

January 1, 2013 Posted by Dave Robison

The Roundtable Podcast, Workshop Episode 44, with Gareth Powell and Dan Ritter Gareth Powell – author of the freshly minted awesomeness of “Ack-Ack Macaque” as well as “The Recollection“, “Silversands” and more – returns to the Big Chair to help Ryan Stevenson and me workshop a delicious future-tech sci-fi thriller (with a theological spin) shared by Guest Writer Daniel Ritter. Dan’s tale of nano-tech, deranged mega-corps, cybernetic cultures, and “The God Process” proves to be rich food for the table… everyone dives in with a gusto and by the end of the feast, we’re all sitting on piles of Literary Gold. (and if you find your writer’s appetite is still un-sated, check out Gareth’s Showcase Episode!)

It’s classic Roundtable goodness, friends, with the inevitable outcome… Literary Gold for everybody! (and once you’re done here, check out Michael’s Showcase Episode!)

Workshop Episode 39 (Guest Host: Cecilia Tan)

November 27, 2012 Posted by Dave Robison

The Roundtable Podcast, Workshop Episode 39, with Cecilia Tan and Nobilis Reed Cecilia Tan – author, visionary, and activist who’s passions are as diverse as the literary works they inspire – returns to the Big Chair at the Roundtable to infuse this Workshop episode with he unique and eloquent brand of literary awesomeness. We are joined by Guest Writer Nobilis Reed, a veteran author in his own right with a wealth of stories, podcasts, and audio adventures to his  name. His erotic noire steampunk fantasy (yeah, that’s right… a four-genre mash-up. One might say a veritable orgy of genres *rimshot*) inspires a vigorous discussion from all sides of the table, which leads – as always – to a mighty hoard of Literay Gold. (And, after you fill your pockets, there’s even more writerly goodness in Cecilia’s Showcase Episode!)
