It has been 10 years since the Thunder Road novel came out and Chadwick is back with a new book set in the Thunder Road world, gathering 10 short stories set in the Thunder Road world. We discuss how this came about, writing stories not from Ted Callan’s perspective, the music of the book and its influence, reading it separate from the trilogy, and additional characters from the trilogy. We also tap into Graveyard Mind, the first book in another series by Chadwick, how it would work in a gaming setting and the future of the series. We discuss the Savage Worlds Gaming System, Microscope Game, and Clare C Marshall’s YouTube Channel.

The book launched at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg. You can listen to the whole thing here:

We also discuss comic books: scripting for comics, artists, different writing styles, and Marvel Comics.

Check up on all things Chadwick over at his website:

McNally Robinson is the premiere bookseller in Canada and where you should support your favourite authors. You can visit them here:

And finally, Chadwick’s publisher is Ravenstone Press (an imprint of Turnstone Press):

We play several music clips throughout the episode. Music is a key component of Chadwick’s writing. Because I want you to go find the music that inspires his series, here are some of the key songs of Thunder Road.
