Kaffeeklatsch with Howard Tayler, Schlock Mercenary web comic creator, WorldCon 2013

NOTE: This is a mostly unedited room recording. There may be some slightly strong language. Also, Howard keeps mentioning “the video”. I don’t do video podcasts. I don’t have the face for them. Howard, however, is on video a lot! So, no, you’re not missing anything.

Right click and “save as” to download this interview!

Howard Tayler is the creator, writer, penciler, inker, etc. of the wonderful web comic Schlock Mercenary. Every day since June 12, 2000, Howard has put up a new strip in this comedic space opera.

He is also part of the team of creative minds behind the Hugo Award winning podcast “Writing Excuses”.

I never miss an episode of either one.

Present at the Kaffeeklatsch were:

One other gentleman arrived about half way through, but I was unable to get his name.

I tend to talk. Don't know if I make any sense, but I talk. A lot.
