Here is a message from David Drage posted over at The Black Coast Press Group:

I have been thinking about creating a podcast aimed at discussing REH, sword and sorcery and possibly pulp era fiction. I am fairly well read when it comes to REH (and David Gemmell, whom I consider S&S of the highest quality) but otherwise my interests lean toward SF. I have been reading quite a bit of pulp fiction recently (I am in the middle of Hardboiled Cthulhu at the moment).

I see the podcast as a relaxed mix of reviews, “in depth” articles, and possibly fiction readings (if anyone submits any). Anyway, what I want to know is, would there be enough interest in a podcast about pulp era fiction, or sword and sorcery in particular?

Secondly, as the subject is quite broad, is there anyone out there who would be interested in contributing to the show. I am looking for at least one co-host, as well as, possibly, a couple of other contributors who would be happy to read reviews, do interviews etc. As I am in the UK, an American co-host would be ideal, to broaden the appeal of the show. Also there would be a need for written contributions of both reviews and longer articles.

I am happy enough to edit and do the technical work with the sound recordings, but I would like to find someone to create and run the
website for the podcast. My web-design skills are basic at best, and I would like the website to look fairly professional.

So, what do you folks think, is there enough interest? Is there anyone interested in contributing? Is anyone already doing something similar (in which case please let me know so I can listen in on it)? If you think I should just forget it please let me know why.

Anyway, please email me if you want to get involved: [email protected]
