What’s this? The Mythcreants Podcast is joined by a new guest host, and he just appeared out of nowhere! This week, Wes joins Oren and Chris to discuss works with strong foreshadowing — or at least that was the plan. Our hosts manage to get just a little past the halfway point before they also start talking about stories with bad foreshadowing, just to provide some contrast, of course. They examine the different facets of foreshadowing and how it is applied in both old words and new. They consider how POV affects foreshadowing and then lay down some foreshadowing of their own regarding next week’s episode. Of course you’ll have to listen to find out what it is.
- Three Parts Dead
- Araby by James Joyce
- Lord of the Rings
- Harry Potter
- Fahrenheit 451, which Bradbury wrote on a 20 cents/hour rental typewriter.
