Episode Info: In part II of our conversation with Anna Smith Spark, author of the Grimdark fantasy debut THE COURT OF BROKEN KNIVES, we conclude our chat by talking literary influences and what sort of fiction is too extreme for the Queen of Grimdark; we delve into Anna’s past as a goth and what her favorite pair of shoes look like (hint: they’re covered in spikes); we’ll talk about Anna’s struggle with dyslexia, dyspraxia, and Aspurger’s Syndrome, and what advice she has for creatives who struggle with disabilities; we’ll find out how she landed Mark Lawrence’s literary agent, get a preview of new projects Anna’s working on including the occult Grimdark serial anthology LANDFALL, a round of our new game Knife Party, and more!  Find Anna Smith Spark online at, or on Twitter @QueenofGrimdark!
