At WorldCon, I was asked to participate in a podcast that required me to answer only one question. “Describe your ideal protagonist.” The Roundtable Podcast asked a number of authors that question and the answers are up today on their site.
WorldCon is an event that many authors anticipate all year, an epic gathering of writers, publishers, and readers celebrating the ever-shifting tapestry of speculative fiction.
Once again, Brion and I found ourselves in the unenviable position of not attending such an epic event. Thank all the literary gods that our Wandering Alchemist, Ben Delano (co-host of his own podcast, “Reader/Writer“), was on hand and willing to seek out Literary Gold on our behalf.
And such gold he found! Ben heroically pursued some truly remarkable people and asked each of them:
Describe your ideal protagonist
We know what you’re thinking (’cause it’s the same thing we were thinking), “These are all going to be the same answer.” Oh no, dear friends… the diversity of response that we got affirms the depth of these writer’s perceptions within their craft. Literary Gold abounds… get yours!
