134 – Lessons From Long Series, Part 1

The Mythcreant Podcast
Speculative fiction readers gobble up books like they’re going out of style, so this week we set our sights on what we’ve learned from these extra long sagas. Joining us is guest host Ari, who’s read these books about a million times. Listen as we discuss what makes a world worth exploring over multiple books, when you should stop after the first book, and the importance of food descriptions.

    Wheel of time is not in the show notes, yet it pioneered the big fat fantasy series….
    Just kidding you don’t need to talk about it if you don’t want (and I can see why you wouldn’t)

    The Redwall book with gullwacker was “Mariel of Redwall.” That was one of my favorites of the series when I was a kid.

    It’s funny that two of you never finished the Wheel of Time series, because I picked up the books when there were only six out, and I stopped reading the ones that came out after that. I wonder what it is that doesn’t sustain interest for some folks?

      At book 6 the story goes absolutely nowhere actually.
