Humor in Science Fiction and Fantasy (with Jim C. Hines and Brian Briggs)

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

This is audio from another panel discussion at Penguicon 2010 I was a part of, called “Humor in Science Fiction and Fantasy.”

Joining me on the panel are Jim C. Hines, author of the Goblin Quest and Princess series and Brian Briggs, creator of the geek humor site BBspot.com.

I loved being on this panel. It was a hoot. We talked about writing humor in genres vs. traditional fiction, and even in non-fiction. Jim teases me for taking food home from the laundromat. And we learn that Batman makes anything funnier.

Jim was also a guest on an episode for the other podcast I’m a part of, LansingNext. I am the co-host, and bring my lovable geek humor to the show.

Oh and last week’s podcast made it to the front page of BoingBong last week. Awesome!

Fantasy Writing Panel Podcast

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

NOTE: Not our regularly scheduled episode!

This is a live recording of Jim C. Hines (Goblin Quest, Stepsister Scheme, The Mermaid’s Madness) Phil Kline (Curse of the Kitsune) and myself talking about Fantasy Writing at the Delta Township District Library on September 1st, 2009.  The sound quality will not be the same as the other episodes, as I just set my recorder on the table and let it go. I did what I could to tweak things (but you can only do so much with an .MP3 recorded at 64 kbps).

The three of us chatted about writing fantasy, our writing process and answered questions from the audience.  The highpoint, for me anyway, is listening to Jim explain his upcoming muppet-werewolf short story.

Run time: 49 minutes.

The next episode of The Magic of Eyri will run Sunday, September 27th.
