By  |  0 Comments

Over at Speculate, the Podcast for Writers, Readers, and Fans, Greg and I talk to the author of The Dervish House, Ian McDonald in Episode 47. This was an insightful interview with a terrific and well traveled author. We talk quite a bit about the real Istanbul and how that influenced Ian’s writing of The Dervish House.

In our next episode, Episode 48, we discuss writing technique inspired by our reading of The Dervish House, including evoking all the senses, worldbuilding, atmosphere, contrasting characters, and more.

As always, thanks for listening and spreading the word about our little corner of the web.
