Welcome to the Metamor City Podcast!

Posted by on 28 Sep 2013 | Tagged as: Announcements

The Metamor City Podcast was a sci-fi/fantasy audio fiction series that ran from 2007 to 2010, with some additional content in early 2011. It is distributed for free through this website. It features a mixture of short stories and full-length novels, all taking place in one large world with an overarching story arc. Combining the narration of audiobooks with the music and sound effects of a serial radio drama, The Metamor City Podcast provided an immersive audio experience of a world like no other.

In May 2015 author Chris Lester returned with a new podcast, The Raven & the Writing Desk, which features additional stories both inside and outside the Metamor City universe. These stories are presented in single-narrator format, with high-quality audio but minimal music and sound effects. New episodes of The Raven & the Writing Desk are released each week on Saturday or Sunday, both here and at www.chrislester.org.

TRATWD 055 – Business 101 for Writers, with J. Daniel Sawyer

Posted by on 04 Jun 2016 | Tagged as: Interview

dan_headshot3bIt’s time for another interview! This time I sat down with J. Daniel Sawyer to discuss his new book, The Every Day Novelist: Business 101. We discussed how being a writer is different from being in other kinds of business, how the publishing industry has changed in recent years, and the fundamental question of copyright and its place in our culture. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
