Ep8 Language & Race in Speculative Fiction

So I'm Writing a Novel...

02-08-2021 • 47 mins

Oliver gets into universal translators and "The Common Tongue", Robert Howard's prose, reads a few cool paragraphs by Howard and a handful of his S&S contemporaries, gets into writing while not being entirely aware of the precise terminology for the techniques you're using, our old friend racism, and doing your best to avoid the inherent potholes in representing large groups as separate species instead of simply humans with a different culture. In the listener question segment Oliver answers a request for details on how many short stories will make up Untitled Sword & Sorcery Novel and how much variety there will be between them in length & tone. And here's, as promised in the episode, a link to where you can read The Dark Eidolon by Clark Ashton Smith for free. www.soimwritinganovel.com PATREON: www.patreon.com/soimwritinganovel BUY OLIVER'S BOOKS: https://www.oliverbrackenbury.com/store SO I'M WRITING A NOVEL...
