The Grim Tidings Podcast Your podcast for all things Grimdark and more!

July 22, 2016  

We’re honored to be joined by R. Scott Bakker, author of the Prince of Nothing trilogy, and the Aspect-Emperor series, which includes his latest release THE GREAT ORDEAL. During our conversation we chat about how new readers can get acclimated to his rich and dense novels, his thoughts on the ever-controversial Grimdark sub-genre, the role playing roots of the Second Apocalypse story universe, obsessing about your writing, advice that’s got him kicked out of writing seminars, and much more. THE GREAT ORDEAL is available now in the US from The Overlook Press, and drops in the UK September 29th from Orbit. Find R. Scott Bakker online at, or on Twitter @TheDevilsChirp.
