1A-Knights of the Round Table: Yvainglory by XavierRoy

This week on the Myths and Legends podcast, Iโ€™ll introduce the show and discuss what itโ€™ll be about. Then, weโ€™ll start right in on the story of Yvain, a knight of King Arthur’s court who’ll show that by being a huge jerk to nearly everyone you’ll get everything you can ever want, throw it all away, and get it all again!

Then, for the mythological creature of the week, the hidden folk of Iceland, cheerful little elves who might give you great gifts or rain rocks down on you.

The day before the money finally ran out, I did come across a tantalising possibility which, one of these days, I really must get around to following up, since it might just be the missing ingredient that would make all the difference; but of course I was in no position to do anything about it at that time, so I sold the glassware for even less than I paid for it and wandered into the centre of town, trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life.

An interesting discussion by two of my favourite authors on writing and how to tell stories.

Science fiction and fantasy have gone from the sidelines to the mainstream. We bring you a live conversation between two of the fieldโ€™s living legends, George R.R. Martin (โ€œA Song of Ice and Fire,โ€ adapted for television as Game of Thrones, the Wild Card series) and Kim Stanley Robinson (New York 2140, the Mars trilogy), discussing their careers, the history of fantastic literature, and how it shapes our imagination. They came to the Clarke Center in support of the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Workshop (clarion.ucsd.edu), the premiere training and proving ground for emerging writers, which the Clarke Center organizes each summer with the Clarion Foundation.
