Sunday , 9, April 2017 9 Comments

Okay, this one‘s been in the works for what’s seemed like ages. It has now arrived at this webzone! Fire up a plate of pizza rolls and tune into this monster podcast that weighs in at well over two hours.

  • Hear more about Sudden Rescue and Sword and Flower.
  • Discover astonishing insights into the genesis of The King’s Dragon and its followup novellas. The heroic archetype chosen for each installment will blow your mind!!!
  • Find out what it’s like going to the big box stores after taking the science fiction and fantasy red pill.
  • Get advice on how to jump into the pulp revolution scene with weird tales of your own.
  • Hear praise for Castalia House Blog’s recent shift to more short fiction coverage. (Yeah, I was taking notes!)
  • Receive a warning that the days of the uber-bloated unending fantasy epic are coming to a close.
  • Become privy to a prediction that the pulp revolution scene is going to continue to grow at a prodigious rate.
  • Indulge in a digression into the art of audio book reading. (Hint: both of these guys do that stuff professionally!)
  • And more!!

Check it out! Listen to the whole thing!!!

Oh, one thing I should put in here as a quasi-correction. I get credited here for helping inspire both the space princess and the blue collar working man protagonist. John C. Wright was writing about the awesomeness of space princesses before me (when I use the term in Appendix N, it’s because I picked it up from him.) Also, many of P. Alexander’s short reviews we host here cover Planet Stories tales that feature blue collar guys in space. That’s how I remember it, anyway…!

    I listened to the whole thing last night. I finally got to hear what Jon Mollison sounds like, I learned about the rapid changes happening in the publishing space, and I felt a wave of inspiration.

    Also, I’m glad that Sword & Flower caused some inspiration on its own. 🙂

    Hot damn, man! I should get you to do the write-ups for the podcast every week! That is spectacular! I really appreciate the plug, and I’m glad everyone is enjoying the podcast! Jon is a lot of fun to talk to, and I’m looking forward to doing it again sometime!

    I am not entirely sure but I think in that podcast Jon attributes to me an article that PCBushi wrote:

    http://www.castaliahouse.com/fairy-stories-and-beyond-baums-wizard-of-oz/

    Which cannot stand if only because PCBushi is far more prolific and better writer then I.

    Also Jim mentioned interest in the article. So even if I misheard there it is.

    That was an excellent podcast! So much cool stuff. There oughtta be a transcript. I would be remiss if I didn’t toss Jim a big thumbs up for giving props to H. Rider Haggard and Dio. We need more of this.

    • Jeffro says:

      I pity the book store clerk that neither knows who Haggard is nor has any Haggard novels on hand with which to satiate the pulpy demands of the red pilled sff reader!

      • John E. Boyle says:

        Any alleged book store clerk who neither knows who Haggard is nor has any Haggard novels on hand has failed in both their job and their duty to the reading public. Save your pity for someone who deserves it.

    Just curious…is Mollison a Michigander (or thereabouts)? I’m usually good with accents and I kept thinking I was listening to either Ted Nugent’s or Iggy Pop’s brother.
