Fantasy-Faction Podcast – Episode 2
Firstly, a HUGE thank you to everyone (over 2250 of you!) who downloaded the first episode of the Podcast. Paul and I are very, very new to this Podcasting malarkey and we are sure it will take us a few episodes to tune the show in and get comfortable with having a giant microphone shoved in-front of our faces – but we’ll get there… we swear!
Well, with that in mind, it is with great pleasure that I can bring to you, our loyal readers and growing amount of listeners, the second Fantasy-Faction Podcast! This time Paul and I go it alone – we discuss the books we are most looking forward to that are set for release throughout 2012. Here is the summary:
The Fantasy-Faction duo, Marc Aplin & Paul Wiseall, return for the second episode of the Fantasy-Faction podcast. In this episode, the two discuss their top 5 most anticipated fantasy novels of 2012 (or top 6 with a sneaky mention of about 10 other titles). The boys also discuss the Fantasy Writing Contest, their upcoming anthology and Marc decides to set Paul a challenge to check out a book he wouldn’t usually read.
- We mentioned 11 books in total (each choosing a top 5 and a shared number 1).
- Marc: (A) Red Country, King of Thorns, Shadow Ops: Control Point, Sworn in Steel, Alchemist of Souls, Babylon Steel.
- Paul: (A) Red Country, The Long Earth, Rail Sea, The City’s Son, Giant Thief, Fated.
- Paul will be reading Legend by David Gemmell as part of a challenge set to him by Marc.
- We wanted to say a HUGE thank you to people who have donated to the Fantasy-Faction server fees using the fees on the right hand side of this site.
- The Fantasy Writing Contest www.FantasyWritingContest.com is now open to submissions.
Finally, this is how things will run:
Week 1: An interview with a well known author or professional from the world of publishing.
Week 2: A main feature, Q&A (based on twitter and forum responses), a book review (in the form of a challenge).
We want to remind you all that this is our first ever time recording our own voices for the listening public and so, things can only get better! We’d love for you to leave your thoughts and suggestions on the podcast in the comment section below and if you have any questions for upcoming episodes, you can visit our forums and leave them!
Next week we will be bringing you an interview with Mr David Tallerman, author of ‘The Giant Thief‘
