    I really enjoyed this interview roundtable thing. It’s a shame you couldn’t fit Emily Compton in (scheduling, I assume?) I’m a big fan of all of Sparkler’s prose series. They are all very engaging in different ways.

    It’s funny, I hadn’t really thought about how different they all are until I heard Gauntlet and Skyglass described side by side. I actually forgot just how WEIRD the concept for Skyglass is, since I read it a chapter at a time over the course of a year.

      Actually, we’re planning to do a separate podcast with Emily Compton of Dusk in Kalevia and Jessica Chavez of Dead Endings later. We like to limit round tables to 1-2 creators each so everyone has plenty of time to talk. :)

      I think the same kind of reader would like Gauntlet and Skyglass, despite the fact that – like you said – the books are extremely different. Largely because they have a similar vibe about finding identity and they’re both surreal, heh.

      The weirdness of Skyglass’s concept is exactly why I was drawn to it in the slush pile. :) And Jenn’s ability to pull it off, of course, which is no small feat!

    Hey there! I recently re-listened to this episode, and I was wondering– are there any updates about the Skyglass paperback?

    I bought Gauntlet, loved Skyglass and so this was a real treat listening to the authors of both series and their view on their story’s world, focus on characters. I wanted to say that I’m glad that Clio helps lead the story and have that much focus on her.
