PseudoPod Bonus Flash (444B): Fan Letter to Joe Lansdale
Fan Letter to Joe Lansdale
by Adrian Simmons
Dear Mr. Landsdale:
I would like to congratulate you on your story “Boys Will Be Boys” in the FenCon 2010 program booklet.
For years I have tried to write a story that gets into the head of a sociopath, and you’ve put together one that gets into the heads of not one, but two of them!
About the Author
ADRIAN SIMMONS writes science fiction, fantasy, a little non-fiction, and a little horror. He is a founding member and co-editor of Heroic Fantasy Quarterly. His science fiction stories are available in issues one and three of James Gunn’s AD ASTRA online magazine, and his story “Paradise of Wasteland” in Heroic Fantasy Quarterly number nineteen received a “recommended” score from Locus magazine’s Lois Tilton.
About the Narrator
Jadzia Axelrod (also known as Jared Axelrod) is an author, an illustrator, and a world changer. Through out her eventful life she has also been a circus performer, a puppeteer, a graphic designer, a sculptor, a costume designer, a podcaster and quite a few other things that she’s lost track of but will no doubt remember when the situation calls for it. But that “writer” business, that seems to be one she keeps coming back to.
Jadzia is the author of Galaxy: The Prettiest Star, a graphic novel illustrated by Jess Taylor and published by DC Comics.
She is the author and illustrator behind “Frankenstein’s Support Group For Misunderstood Monsters,” a comic about monsters and feelings, for Quirk Books.
She is the writer and producer of the award-winning podcast, “The Voice Of Free Planet X” where she interviews stranded time-travelers, low-rent superheroes, unrepentant monsters and other such creature of sci-fi and fantasy, as well as the podcasts “Aliens You Will Meet” and “Fables Of The Flying City.” The story started in “Fables Of The Flying City” is concluded in The Battle Of Blood & Ink, a graphic novel published by Tor.
She is not domestic, she is a luxury, and in that sense, necessary.
Drop her a line, if you’d like to chat. You can also subscribe to her newsletter.
Thanks for coming by.
You look nice today.
