Rocket Talk: A Podcast

Rocket Talk Episode 32: Rachel Bach and Sam Sykes

In this episode of Rocket Talk, Rachel Bach and Sam Sykes visit the podcast to discuss their mutual love for thrilling and bright fantasy with a sense of humor.

Special note is made of the recent release of Sykes’ new novel, The City Stained Red. Also, the back and forth makes for several sidebars, including one on He-Man, She-Ra, and erotica (separate from He-Man and She-Ra!).

Rachel Bach is the author of the Paradox Trilogy, a space opera beginning with Fortune’s Pawn. Under the name Rachel Aaron she has also published the Eli Monpress series, which began with The Legend of Eli Monpress. Her most recently release is Nice Dragon’s Finish Last as Rachel Aaron. She can be found on twitter.

Sam Sykes is the author of four novels. His debut novel Tome of the Undergates began the Aeon’s Gate Trilogy, which concluded in 2013 with The Skybound Sea. The City Stained Red is set in the same world as his previous works, but begins a new series. He is angry and on twitter. The ebook version of The City Stained Red is currently available in the US for $1.99.
