Ken is still on vacation, but the rest of the team: Josh & Kas (co-founders of Grail Quest Books), Tony and Andrew ares here and ready to go after a two week break!
The big topic for tonight’s episode is a two-parter:
1) Who owns a story: the Author? or the Audience?
2) Is a story crafted by an Author the definitive way to tell a story, or should others be free (presuming rights have been acquired legally) to tell that same story via a different form (e.g. book, film, stage, comic book)?
The show will also be updating on the release of Nathan P. Butler’s Greater Good, WARS: The Battle of Phobos, Mavericks #2, and we announce The Child cover artist, Paul Allan Ballard (Star Wars: The Jedi Path, Star Wars: The Book of Sith), an incredible illustrator whom we are very excited to have the opportunity to work with!
Questcast is a weekly podcast, every Wednesday at 8 pm EST on the Middle-earth Network Radio. Josh and Kas are the Founders of Grail Quest Books, and work as the publishing arm of the Network in conjunction with Oloris Publishing. We welcome all sorts of questions about the publishing industry from people who are able to join us in the Questcast Chatroom during the show. Looking forward to seeing you there![audio:http://ia701203.us.archive.org/27/items/QuestcastEpisode5-MajorGqbUodatesWhoOwnsAStoryPt.I/Questcast_4252012_web.mp3%5D
