I am an avid eclectic reader.
This is a short (17 min) interview with Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon. I have listened to Campbell Lost Fleet series and am now listening to JAG in Space and have enjoyed them. So I was interested in hearing more about him and his writing. I had never heard of Elizabeth Moon is was intrigued by her. Apparently she was in the U.S. Marines and writes fantasy as well as military Sci Fi. She discuss the various series she writes I was interested in Vatta's War a military Sci Fi and will see if Audible has it. I did not learn a great deal about them as the interview was too short but they did discuss about how they go about writing and how the characters changed from their original ideas. This is worth the listen and it is free.
Excellent performance! The read's voice, comedic timing, and audience laughter makes you feel like you are truly at one of Mark Twain's talks. After listening to more modern comedians, I didn't expect to laugh as hard to an old writer, but I was constantly laughing at his blunt remarks and reminiscences. Twain is truly an icon ahead of his time in matters dealing with sex, race, religion, etc. The audience Q & A at the end was great!
Interestingly, my interest in becoming reacquainted with Twain's work began while I was listening to a murder mystery novel by James Patterson (Alex Cross series). The story dealt with post-civil war lynchings. Two of the characters went to a live performance by Twain and remarked on the deep hilarity of his talks. I can relate to their experience. :)
