Giant ants and pterodons come to Earth via a rift in space-time, kill lots of people, and consume anything electric, leaving the remnants of humanity to rebuild in a post-apocalyptic steampunk hellscape. If that line doesn’t sell you on pulp sci-fi, then there may be no hope for you at all. Kenn and Craig welcome best-selling author Larry Correia, who tells us why he pulled this new collaborative novel off his shelf for us to discuss.

    That was a hoot, and it was especially funny finding out about Jack. Authors often include friends and acquaintances in some way, but sometimes much more disguised. Of course, it’s lost on most of the audience.

    Yeah, he was fun. Just wait until Friday, he talks for an entire 30-minute episode about the origins of the Sad Puppies (if you don’t know about it, look it up, it was interesting) and we barely even had to interject. He’s like a gumball machine: put in a quarter, get regaled.

    Regarding those characters/moments: the specifics may be lost on the audience, but I think people pick up on the authors’ added enthusiasm and familiarity, which gives a little extra depth to the writing.

    Do know about it quite well.

    Probably true. An important method of developing believable characters is to think of one or more real people to base someone on. It’s not the only method, of course, but it can be a great shortcut.
