Rocket Talk Episode 68: Patrick S. Tomlinson

Welcome back to the Rocket Talk podcast!

This week’s episode features Patrick S. Tomlinson, the author of The Ark from Angry Robot Books. The pair discuss the current status of Milwaukee as a cultural hot bed, the dearth of humor in science fiction and fantasy, and what Tomlinson was trying to accomplish in his new novel. Warning: mild sports talk.

Patrick S. Tomlinson is a stand-up comedian and author. His debut novel, The Ark, is a locked room murder mystery where the locked room is a generation starship. He’s published by Angry Robot Books and represented by Russ Galen. He lives in Milwaukee with his muscle car.
