Plus, news about the latest lawsuit filed by Big Publishing Luddites, the Authors Guild, this time against Google Books, and the launch of the super-awesome Tim Ferriss Book Club! It’s a laughfest, a crybonanza, and chock full (as always) of literary fiction techniques and philosophy gleaned from the meetup.com-organized “Real Writers Critique Group” in sunny Austin, Texas. (New members always welcome — if you can handle honest criticism!)
Listen to the show on iTunes.com. There’s also a Stitcher player on the top sidebar widget on this page.
