Episode 216 – With Sam Sykes

On December 23, 2014, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

TheCityStainedRedIn episode 216 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio chat with author Sam Sykes.

About Sam:

Sam Sykes has done many things worthy of note, most of them involving violence of one manner or another.  Amongst his feats of strength, he counts the following:

  • Wrestling a Kodiak bear to the earth
  • Defeating nine of ten prime ministers
  • Founding, and later destroying, the East India Company
  • The Renaissance

Those are most likely true, as Sam Sykes is not given to lying without cause.

Sam Sykes currently lives in the United States with his two hounds and, at any given time, is probably yelling at something inanimate.  Tome of the Undergates is his first book, but far from his last.  At 25, Sam Sykes is in an excellent position to provide entertainment while other authors are dying from various infections and stress-related illnesses.  Sam Sykes looks forward to being one of the sole providers of fantasy entertainment, assuming no other authors are actually discovered in the next forty years.

If you have read this far, you are undoubtedly learning that Sam Sykes is an individual you must know personally to be spared his wrath.  Why not check out the BOOKS section and see if his writing is as fancy as your expectations demand?  Or head on over to the LOST PAGES or COMIC section to learn more about how such horrors are created.  If all else fails and you learn nothing of Sam Sykes through this, drop him a line through the CONTACT section.  Be forewarned, though; Sam Sykes’ fury is as terrible as his generosity, so you should probably pay him a nice compliment or something, especially if he’s just woken up from a nap.

Terribly cranky, that man.

    I wanted to say Thank You to John, for the especially awesome recommendation to read ‘Ready Player One’. Not only is it one of the best books I’ve read in a really long time – it was fun and engaging, with good characters set in a rich, fun-to-visit, world. But, I also recommended it to several others, and my bestie has also “fallen in love” with it…I wouldn’t have found it without your recommendation, and also not without listening because of Patrick, lol. So thank you to both of you guys 🙂
