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. https://www.youtube.com/c/ClareMarshall
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.
