We chat with Jesse Bullington / Alex Marshall, author of A CROWN FOR COLD SILVER and A BLADE OF BLACK STEEL! Rob and Phil find out just who the hell Alex Marshall really is, what inspired the fresh worldbuilding in his CRIMSON EMPIRE series, some of the dark inspiration for past novels written as Jesse Bullington (including Korean cinema), using humor to balance the darker elements of speculative fiction, a sneak peek at Jesse’s short story in the forthcoming EVIL IS A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE anthology, not to mention an exciting round of Roll One Up, and more! You can find Jesse / Alex online at!
