The Hobcast Book Show team have been on their travels over the past week, first to Wales and then to Devon for a family holiday. Inspired by their experiences, they were determined to feature an author connected with one of those areas, so this week's guest is the brilliant Malcolm Pryce, author Louie Knight Mystery series of novels set in the coastal town of Aberystwyth in Mid-Wales. As Malcolm explains to Adrian and Rebecca, his childhood experiences of growing up in the town provided ample inspiration for his satirical take on American hard-boiled detective fiction. We also discuss how a career as an advertising copywriter has influenced his work, and how he's using his experience to create a new writing course for authors.
Also this week we discuss the legal case which is dominating publishing in the United States, and we reflect on comments by Anthony Horowitz in a recent interview about the issues facing authors tackling sensitive subjects.
