In GAD We Trust

Well, for those of you who have sat up at night, desperate to hear what my voice sounds like, the wait is over. My fellow blogger JJ, over at The Invisible Event, runs a superb podcast covering all aspects of the Golden Age. You should check it out, from wherever you get your podcasts from, or just stream it from JJ’s blog.

We had a very enjoyable chat about modern writers who use Golden Age ideas, structures and settings, and if you want to listen to it, then here is a link to JJ’s post on it, which contains the links to listen to it. Someone on that post asked for a list of the books mentioned in the chat – here is that list, although it’s by no means complete.

Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

    Well, people may also want to know what your face looks like! You tend to hide yourself in photos, either cutting off your head or showing only your back.
    By the way, I was able to locate two pictures of yourself (proper pictures showing your face) but with difficulty after using advanced search techniques !
