Bookbabble Episode 46: Swordplay with Swordskill – Chit-chat with Crystal Koo

Bookbabble Episode 46: Swordplay with Swordskill – Chit-chat with Crystal Koo
Recorded 21 Sept 2009

Babblers: Renee, Lone, Marcel, Donny with guests Gabriele Breder and Crystal Koo

Synopsis:
This week the group welcomes short story author Crystal Koo, joining us from Hongkong, while surprise guest Gabriele calls in from Frankfurt in this very interesting episode.  Crystal, Gabriele and the gang talk short fiction, and have Crystal field most of them, considering that she’s a published short fiction author.  Crystal reveals the subject of her undergrad thesis, and we get to talk a little about it too.  True to Bookbabble fashion, there are plenty of other things that gets into the mix as well, including, but not limited to, hellish office moves, Dan Brown’s Lost Symbol, Oktoberfest (which begins in September) and cute puppies.

Note: I was kidding about the cute puppies, but who knows, really?

Show Length: 1:38:28 mins
