Hello there! Broad Pod is a group of like-mind lady SF/F authors who read snippets for our – and hopefully your! – pleasure every month.
July’s theme is military speculative fiction. I chose one of my favorite scenes from CAPTIVE DESIRES – the militia’s defense of the Gates of Belukha in the Biysk Mountains, against Azherbhai’s monsters. I admit this was inspired by the Spartans at Thermopylae – but other writers have drunk from that well, too.
In utter defiance of the alphabet, I’m the first author in the podcast. Joining me are Gail Z. Martin‘s Dark Lady’s Chosen, Phoebe Wray‘s Jemma7729, Danielle Ackley-McPhail‘s “First Line: An Alliance Archive Adventure” from So It Begins, Book Two of the Defending the Future series, and Sue Burke‘s English translation of Amadis of Gaul.
Enjoy the fight!
