Welcome to chapter 2 of our focus on genre literature.
This week we bring in a special guest to join the discussion. Jonathan Oliver, editor in chief at Rebellion Press, shares his insights from a publisher’s perspective including what elements of genre storytelling have proven most enduring, what a publisher is looking for in a new author, some suggestions on how to presevere for the struggling writer and of course favourite authors and titles. It was a very enlightening conversation and should be of interest to any who enjoy the genre in the written form or who may have aspirations to be published themselves.
We carry on with our listener submissions which generated another great batch of suggestions including Night of the Living Trekkies, Robopocalypse, Handling the Undead, the Encyclopedia of Monsters, The Frankenstein Archive, and the works of Shirley Jackson, Clive Barker, William Hope Hodgson and much more. There are novels, collections, graphic novels and even an adaptation of a videogame to hear about and hunt down.
