Episode 62 — An Interview w/ Daniel Polansky (the Literary Numismatist)

15 Aug

Daniel Polansky, author of Low Town, joins us for a riveting interview about his life in the Reformed Farm Animal Circus, in which he was known as the Great Fiddlestick.

Okay, so that’s not really true.  Rather, in this episode, Daniel talks to us about his debut novel, a dark genre-bending noir monstrosity we could best describe as awesome, and other fun things, such as how his book can save the World Economy.  If you haven’t read Low Town, we highly recommend it.  It’s noir.  It’s New Weirdy.  It’s dark.  And it’s amazing.

(Plus:  Daniel is a hoot.)

    A gentle correction. 🙂

    The Steven Brust Vlad Taltos books are not named after dragons, but rather the different Houses (themselves named after creatures) in Brust’s Dragaera universe.
