This week I am a guest on the Rocket Feather podcast, which is hosted by my old college buddy Charles Matheus and his partner in crime, Kelly Roberge. Our conversation was originally planned to last about an hour, but we were having so much fun it stretched to nearly two (and might have gone longer, if Charles and Kelly’s cats hadn’t been so insistent on having their dinnertime respected). We take a trip down memory lane to our days at Cornell, recap what I’ve been up to for the last 35 years, and then do a couple of deep dives into my novels Set This House in Order and Lovecraft Country. (Note to my publicist, if she’s reading this: I’m pretty sure I managed to work in a plug for 88 Names somewhere along the way.)
You can listen to the podcast by clicking on the player above, or visit the Rocket Feather website for additional options. Many thanks to Charles and Kelly for having me on the show!
A couple programming notes while I’ve got your attention:
- On July 16, starting at 5 PM Pacific, I will be doing a virtual 88 Names event (via Zoom) for Powell’s City of Books of Portland, OR. My friend and fellow novelist Christopher Moore has graciously agreed to act as moderator.
- On July 25, starting at 5:30 PM Pacific, I will be doing another virtual 88 Names event (also via Zoom) for Sunriver Books & Music of Sunriver, OR. This event will be hosted by the bookstore’s owner, Deon Stonehouse.
Both of these events are open to the public, and you don’t need to be in Oregon to participate. I’ll post details on how you can join as we get closer to the event dates.
