Speaking Polish

by wjw on March 11, 2023

The multitalented Scott Edelman has been conducting interviews with writers at restaurants since before the pandemic. Here he interviews me over a Polish meal at South Boston’s Cafe Polonia.

As well as more recent events, the interview focuses attention on my early career, which may be of interest to some of you.

Again, Episode 193 of Eating the Fantastic.

I first met Scott in 2015 at the SFWA tent at the sadly-departed Baltimore Book Fair and he’s a warm, gracious, and welcoming presence here in our regional SFF community. And multi-talented is correct – besides being an accomplished horror & SFF writer, Scott’s been an artist at Marvel, edited SciFi Magazine back when the channel had one, and a host of other things. I had the pleasure of doing an episode of Eating the Fantastic with him last May; he’s always fun to talk to. His podcast is a great window into our field.

Thank you for the link to this interview! You shared some interesting details about growing up, reading SF, and making stories since childhood. I knew Hardwired had an RPG sourcebook, which I have, but not The Privateers series–I pounced on one on amazon as soon as I head about it. Fascinating to hear about the first cons you attended and the authors you met, too.
