New Shallow & Pedantic Podcast: Brust & Leiber

The Brust of the Lieber Fitz-Gerald Shallow & Pedantic

We indulge in some Edmund Fitzgerald Porter and wax on about two creative fantasy authors that we’ve introduced each other two: Stephen Brust and Fritz Leiber. In the process, we hit upon why Andrew doesn’t like cross-world fantasy, whether sci-fi and fantasy should be distinct, and stumble upon the Universal Field Theory of Creative Decline. A long and ramshackle episode, but fun.
  1. The Brust of the Lieber Fitz-Gerald
  2. We All Shine On
  3. Mike Gets the Good Mike
  4. The Philosophy of Horror
  5. Graphic Novels Should Not Be Movies

As you can see from the episode list, this is our longest episode to date. We ramble along quite nicely, thanks to some excellent porter, and give Stephen Brust and Fritz Leiber some shout-outs for being creative, witty worldbuilders and writers. We’re also up on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Deezer, and YouTube, with iHeartRadio pending.
