Episode 401 – When Chadwick Ginther Comes Looking for You

It has been 10 years since the Thunder Road novel came out and Chadwick is back with a new book set in the Thunder Road world, gathering 10 short stories set in the Thunder Road world. We discuss how this came about, writing stories not from Ted Callan’s perspective, the music of the book and its influence, reading it separate from the trilogy, and additional characters from the trilogy. We also tap into Graveyard Mind, the first book in another series by Chadwick, how it would work in a gaming setting and the future of the series. We discuss the Savage Worlds Gaming System, Microscope Game, and Clare C Marshall’s YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/c/ClareMarshall

The book launched at McNally Robinson in Winnipeg. You can listen to the whole thing here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdlvyvFUWLU

We also discuss comic books: scripting for comics, artists, different writing styles, and Marvel Comics.

Check up on all things Chadwick over at his website: https://chadwickginther.com/

McNally Robinson is the premiere bookseller in Canada and where you should support your favourite authors. You can visit them here: https://www.mcnallyrobinson.com/

And finally, Chadwick’s publisher is Ravenstone Press (an imprint of Turnstone Press): https://www.turnstonepress.com/books/ravenstone.html

We play several music clips throughout the episode. Music is a key component of Chadwick’s writing. Because I want you to go find the music that inspires his series, here are some of the key songs of Thunder Road.

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
