The Witch Who Came In From the Cold

The Cold War rages in the back rooms and dark alleys of 1970s Prague as spies and sorcerers cross murky lines to do battle for home and country. The fate of the East and the West hangs in the balance right along the Iron Curtain—and crackling beneath the surface of it all is a vein of magic, raw and waiting to be tapped.

What Are the Most Rewarding and Challenging Aspects of Co-writing?

Co-writing a story has a number of benefits, but does come with its challenges, as well. You and your co-writer(s) must be clear on your process, expectations, and goals up front in order to weave your story together.

How is Technology Changing the Way People Consume Literature?

One of the main impacts technology has had on society and culture in general is breaking down boundaries, making it both easier and harder to find things that were previously obscure. And I think that’s as true with literature as it is with anything else.

Max Gladstone on writing The Witch Who Came In From The Cold S2E11: “Absent Friends”

I loved writing Frank's sections of this episode. He has such a different voice from the younger characters: richer with history, bare of self-doubt. He might have been out of the field for a long time, but he remembers the swing of it: the prickling of danger, the thrill of the hunt. (His canine costar doesn't hurt, either!)
