The Hidden Influences in The Flames of Shadam Khoreh

By  |  0 Comments

I was recently invited over to to talk about my influences in The Flames of Shadam Khoreh. I’ve talked a fair bit about the primary influences, most notably on Scalzi’s Big Idea and Mary Robinette Kowal’s My Favorite Bit, so this time I decided to talk about some of the things that were not so obvious to me in the writing of it, things that were more “beneath the surface,” so to speak.

Things like The Sopranos, and mixing and matching story ideas, and the circular journey.

Head on over to to see the results.
