Anton Strout Launches Once and Future Podcast

Novelist Anton Strout recently started the Once and Future Podcast, a new interview series that aims to fill a genre gap in the podcasting world.

The fourth episode of the series is a pre-New York Comic Con special, including conversations with novelist Drew Magary and Book Country’s Colleen Lindsay. What other genres need a comprehensive podcast?

Here’s more about the podcast: “I wanted a place where I could talk about all things happening within my chosen genre, all the things I love in fantasy, science fiction, even some crossover into paranormal romance, including weekly segments focused on: breaking news, upcoming titles, interviews with guest authors from every point in their various careers, upcoming book tour info, convention news, and just overall general discussion of our genre. Parts of the podcast will be reader focused, but there will also be parts coming up for those who are writers, including interviews with professionals of all walks of life from within the world of publishing itself.”
