I have left the silent era and entered the world of podcasting. Rob Wolf interviewed me for his New Books in Science Fiction and Fantasy podcast. You can go here to listen to me talk about A Darkling Sea, Aztecs, why roleplaying games are different from novels, Bone Wars, my obsession with getting stuff right, and my upcoming novel Corsair.
I've never done a podcast before; it was a lot of fun. My voice didn't sound nearly as odd as I had feared it would, and Mr. Wolf very kindly edited out some of my more egregious digressions. I look forward to doing it again some time.
