    After listening to Myke and Peter going off about the misuse of magic in fiction, I was reminded of the following article on Holly Lisle’s site:


    Holly has published a bunch of novels in the traditional way (Baen, Tor, etc) and has now walked away from that headache to release her backlist to the epub world. As a reader, I’m happy, happy, happy about this because it means she’ll be writing and releasing more books! Yay! Like the sequels to HUNTING THE CORRIGAN’S BLOOD.

    Anyway, if you’re interested in a potently logical look at magic in fiction, take a gander at this stuff. Also, somewhere on that site is an article about writing allegories, and if I get the time later, I’ll look it up. But mainly, I thought that the article on magic was right down your guests’ alley.

    Now, off to pick up the next TFN show, which for some reason isn’t jumping into my iTunes the way it used to.

    This was some great discussion. I’m not a writer but three family members are and two of them cannot grasp the concept of ePub for 99c-$2.99 price range. They will listen to this podcast if it kills me. Great show. I tuned in for Justin and Andrew, and I’ll tune in again for Patrick and John.

  4. An interesting interview, stuff about Patrick’s books, and “Steampunk Girl” in the end credits.
    Good stuff all around!
