Pulp-Lit Storytellers Club
About This Show
A podcast for novelists and other writers of long-form fiction - listening to, talking about and learning storycraft from the most prolific, well-known and widely-loved storytellers of all time: The penny-a-word pulpsters of the '20s, '30s and '40s. In each weekly episode, we work our way through a classic pulp-fiction novel, reading a half-hour's worth in each episode; then we 'workshop' the reading, talking about what makes it go - or fail - and what we can learn from it. Current project: 'The Skylark of Space," by E.E. 'Doc' Smith and Lee Hawkins Garby (from 'Astounding Stories,' 1928).

I think we'd better make a dash for the Skylark right now, before he has time to think it over, don't you?' | 'That is undoubtedly the best way,' Dunark replied, lapsing into his own tongue. 'Nalboon is plainly in awe of you now, but if I understand him at all, he is more than ever determined to seize your vessel, and every darkam's delay is dangerous.'
