Daniel Polansky and Myke Cole on The Builders and Terrible Secrets

Says Daniel Polansky, author of The Builders, “Years ago, while backpacking through the slums and fleshpots of East Asia, I found out something so terrible about Myke Cole, so utterly disgraceful, that in exchange for keeping it silent he has been forced to feign an affection for my writing entirely out of proportion to its actual merit. Exhibit Q of this Faustian bargain follows, in which Myke and I, hidden in the bowels of Tor and drinking a very modest autumn ale which Myke insisted was too hoppy because he only likes appletinis (this is not the terrible secret, but it might be), wax poetic about The Builders, and generally talk a lot of nonsense.”

Authors: They’re full of secrets. You want to find out what those secrets are? The answers (or at least some of them) are in the audio below!

The Builders is a harrowing tale of bloody revenge—featuring a host of feisty woodland critters. Previously published by Tor.com, this spring Jurassic London is releasing a limited hardcover edition of The Builders with illustrations by Howard Hardiman, which will be available for preorder soon.

From the catalog copy:

A missing eye.
A broken wing.
A stolen country.

The last job didn’t end well.

Years go by, and scars fade, but memories only fester. For the animals of the Captain’s company, survival has meant keeping a low profile, building a new life, and trying to forget the war they lost. But now the Captain’s whiskers are twitching at the idea of evening the score.

You can also find the audio edition, read by Corey Gagne, on Audible or wherever digital audiobooks are sold. Listen to an excerpt here.
