This past weekend the World Fantasy Convention was held in Arlington, Virginia. As part of the festivities, the Coode Street Podcast team produced the second ever “live” Coode Street Podcast. This time the wonderful Caitlin R. Kiernan and Peter Straub joined Jonathan and Gary to discuss:
The Literary Uses of Fantasy
Panelists: Jonathan Strahan, Gary K. Wolfe, Peter Straub, Caitlin R. Kiernan
Description: The Coode Street Podcast discusses the literary uses of fantasy with Peter Straub and other special guests. Why do writers clearly capable of realistic, character-driven stories choose to introduce fantastic elements, some of them extreme, into their stories? What does the fantasy enable them to do that the more realistic narrative doesn’t?
The podcast went very well, and we’re happy that it’s now ready for you. We would like to sincerely thank Caitlin and Peter for making the time to be part of the podcast again, and the team at WFC2014 for helping us organise and record the episode. It was deeply appreciated.
As always, we hope you enjoy the episode. We’ll be back next week with more!
