In this episode we’re very excited to be talking with the poet, Ed Steck about his investigations into the intricacies of “worldbuilding” which Steck describes as “the process of constructing a fictional world, including the political and social atmosphere, history, environmental landscapes, government, and any other expandable concept relevant to the construction of a believable (or unbelievable) world.”

Ed Steck is the author of An Interface for a Fractal Landscape (Ugly Duckling Presse), The Garden: Synthetic Environment for Analysis and Simulation (Ugly Duckling Presse), The Rose (with Adam Marnie, Hassla), Far Rainbow (Make Now Books), and others. He lives in Pittsburgh, PA.
