JC Hutchins invents new audiovisual podcasting fanfic for Seventh Son

Mur sez, "JC Hutchins brought us the killer podcast trilogy 7th Son, but after the novels were done, he invited eight authors from podcasting to write in his world. The audio anthology, called 7th Son, OBSIDIAN, comes out in May and features stories that follow random Americans through the nationwide 2 week blackout that happens in the trilogy. Authors contributing to the Obsidian audio project include Michael A. Stackpole, Scott Sigler, and Mur Lafferty. Right now he's started a video project, showing content submitted by fans and allowing viewers to call in and submit their own 'stories from the blackout' - inviting a new kind of video and audio fanfic in his world. "
THE NATIONWIDE BLACKOUT IS NOW … the violence and chaos are HERE … and YOU are a victim. Call the number in the video below and submit your story of horror and survival! Email your friends this blog post link, encourage them to call and share their “blackout experience!” 7th Son: OBSIDAN is coming….

(Recordings will be played in May, in the OBSIDIAN audio anthology, which chronicles the blackout.)

  1. Disclaimer: long time JC Hutchins fan here. I may gush a bit.
    This is insanely cool. JC is an incredibly talented author and performer who’s work I’ve been following since he first started podcasting years ago. The guy’s not only a brilliant author, but he’s amazingly savvy when it comes to New Media and connecting to his fans. He’s always responding to their calls, immediately available to them on Twitter, and always seeking their involvement and participation in everything he does. This is just one more example of it. While other authors try and shut down or even sue people who create fanfics in the worlds their fans have come to love, here’s one who’s not only encouraging it.. he’s actively creating ways to showcase his fan’s work and make them an official part of the world he’s written! Brilliant. :) (P.S. – It doesn’t hurt that the 7th Son trilogy is absolutely mind-blowingly *awesome*, too.)
