Drinkin’ with David and… ROBERT V.S. REDICK (Master Assassins)
Hey everyone and welcome back to Drinkin’ with David!
This time around we get to hang out with Robert VS Redick: author of Fire Sacraments (Master Assassins, Sidewinders, Siege).
Any fans of desert high-fantasy should definitely give this series a shot. The prose is outstanding, the characters compelling, and the world sprawling. Check out the video below for our discussion on Redick’s drink choice, his approach to writing, and how he avoids Orientalizing his work.
Robert V.S. Redick is the author of Master Assassins and Sidewinders (July 2021), the first two novels in The Fire Sacraments epic fantasy series. Master Assassins (2018) was a finalist for the European Booknest Award for Best Novel, and was featured on numerous Best of the Year lists. Patrick Rothfuss said of it, “I like this book so much I wish I could have written it, but deep down I know I couldn’t have written it so well.”
Robert is also the author of the Chathrand Voyage Quartet (The Red Wolf Conspiracy and sequels), among the most beloved and critically acclaimed epic fantasy series of recent years. He is a former instructor in the Stonecoast and University of Nevada Reno MFA programs.
Redick is also an environmental justice consultant, and has lived and worked in Indonesia, Argentina, Colombia and many other countries. He and his partner, Dr. Kiran Asher, pick wild blueberries in Western Massachusetts.
