Nov 14 2023 • 55 mins

Join co-hosts Adrian M. Gibson and M.J. Kuhn as they chat with bestselling author Jim Butcher about his new novel The Olympian Affair, The Dresden Files and the Codex Alera series, teaching his son James J. Butcher everything he knows, a dream Dresden anime, Lois Bujold and The Vorkosigan Saga, writing cats and animal POVs, cherished mentors, paying it forward, blending genres, weightlifting and much more.

NOTE: This is part one of a two-part chat with Jim. Stayed tuned next week for his mini-masterclass on Impactful Scenes & Sequels. Also, Jim mentioned an essay he wrote about Stargate SG-1, but as much as we searched we couldn't find it. Sorry!
