Brainstorm: John C. Wright

The next Open Brainstorm session will be with author John C. Wright. We will be discussing his new novel SOMEWHITHER, the new fantasy series he is in the process of writing for Castalia House, his record-setting Hugo nominations, and the Phil Sandifier debate concerning ONE BRIGHT STAR TO GUIDE THEM. The session will run from 7 PM to 8:30 PM EDT on Thursday, July 16, and there will be a Q&A session following the interview. To register to attend, click here.

The Brainstorm July session will be Tuesday, July 21st, from 7:30 to 9:00 PM EDT. The topics will be the idea of designing a superior alternative to Wikipedia, the possible implications of the resolution of the Greek debt crisis, and updates on applied Life Design, the Tor boycott, and the Hugo Awards. If you'd like to take part, you can acquire either a monthly or an annual membership.

If you're an Annual member who has a question you'd like addressed, please email me at least a day before the event. Let me know if you've got a mike and would prefer me to call on you so you can ask it or if you'd rather that I just directly address the question.

Part through SOMEWHITHER (he is in the cage). Good so far

If you can put on some headphones, the GoToWebinar app is pretty great if you need to be doing other things. You can load up the webinar and listen to the discussion. I've done this a couple of times now and it's worked very well.

Are annual membership and prior, e-mailed notice required to submit questions in the Open session? If not, how will the Q&A work?

No. It's just a question of me seeing the question and either repeating it or calling on the questioner.

I hear tell that he might be a "bad-to-reprehensible" author. Which, considering the source, means that he is most likely a fantastic author.

At Base.... He so reprehensible that Babbitts are threatening not to come to the Deep South Con in Atlanta (GA) where he is Guest of Honor. I think he is a mixture of Van Vogt, Vance and Stapledon and my mind was blown by THE Golden Age trilogy.

Is there still a special with the Somewhither book?

Anonymous Aeoli Pera July 13, 2015 8:56 PM  

I might have forgotten to mention, Michael Trust would be another good choice for a guest.

"I hear tell that he might be a "bad-to-reprehensible" author. Which, considering the source, means that he is most likely a fantastic author."

Speaking from recent experience, I like his work but what's been getting out of Tor has been lacking in editorial oversight and tuning.  Here's hoping that what comes out after this is better.

Not so good for him, being in a cage and all.

Was it a rusty cage?

Tough sci fi writers last. Ostensibly tough rusty cages don't.
