Boing Boing has a new addition to its family of wonderful podcasts! The Sword and Laser (S&L) is a science fiction and fantasy-themed book club podcast, started by Veronica Belmont and Tom Merritt. The main goal of the club is to build a strong online community of sci-fi / fantasy buffs, and to discuss and enjoy books of both genres. Check out previous episodes here.
In this episode, Veronica and Tom speak with author Peter V. Brett about his Demon Cycle books, the grim world of dark fantasy, his old HP iPaq, and why he's so big in Germany.
