AudioTim 42: Chicon 7 Panel “Write What You Don’t Know”

chiconMy first panel recorded from World Science Fiction Convention #70, Chicon 7, is, “Write What You Don’t Know.” Stay connected for future podcasts on the AudioTim page, or subscribe via iTunes, RSS, or Stitcher Radio. In two weeks, Tom King, author of A ONCE CROWDED SKY, will be my guest, and in four weeks, I’ll post another panel from Chicon 7.
