In episode 189 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio talk with author James L. Sutter.
James Lafond Sutter is the Managing Editor for Paizo Publishing and a co-creator of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game campaign setting. He is the author of the novels Death’s Heretic and The Redemption Engine, the former of which was ranked #3 on Barnes & Noble’s list of the Best Fantasy Releases of 2011, as well as declared a finalist for both the Compton Crook Award for Best First Novel and a 2013 Origins Award. He’s written numerous short stories for such publications as Escape Pod, PodCastle, Shattered Shields, Apex Magazine, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Geek Love (the most-backed fiction anthology in Kickstarter history at the time of its publication), and the #1 Amazon best-seller Machine of Death. His anthology Before They Were Giants pairs the first published short stories of science fiction and fantasy luminaries with new interviews and writing advice from the authors themselves. In addition, he’s published a wealth of award-winning gaming material for both Dungeons & Dragons and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
When not writing or editing, James has performed extensively with various bands and other musical projects ranging from punk and progressive metalcore to folk and musical theater. James lives in Seattle with his wife, a gaggle of roommates, and a fully functional death ray.
