A fan of asking big questions, Christopher Ruocchio must’ve been right at home studying English Rhetoric and Classics in college. So, what could be better than than getting a job as a published author or editor of science fiction and fantasy after graduation? How about getting both jobs at the same time? By the time he’d graduated from college, Christopher had his first traditional book deal—and he’d managed to land a job as an editor at Baen Books.Learn why today’s guest believes there’s no such thing as a useless degree in writing, as well as how his parent’s neutrality around his interests growing up was actually a good thing.

And they've been successful: a cult-like fervour building around Hadrian following a particularly impressive victory. But popularity comes at a price: an assassination attempt, triggered by those within the Imperial government who are scared of his rise to prominence.Now the Empire has turned dangerous, Hadrian and his crew leave to pursue his true interest: a search for a long-rumoured connection between the first Emperor and the Quiet: the ancient, seemingly long-dead race. And he will find the next key to unlocking their secrets in a massive library on a distant world.The coordinates for their origin planet.A planet that no longer holds life, but may still contain answers.'Empire of Silence is epic science fiction at its most genuinely epic. Ruocchio has made something fascinating here, and I can't wait to see what he does next' James S.A. Corey, New York Times-bestselling author of The Expanse novels'Empire of Silence is a rich tapestry of future history and worldbuilding, a galactic-sized story of a hero, a tyrant, but portrayed as a man' Kevin J.

BFRH 2020 04 10: Thomas Kidd, Susan R. Matthews, and Christopher Ruocchio on Overruled; and David Weber's Uncompromising Honor, Part 8.
The Baen Free Radio Hour
Thomas Kidd, Susan R. Matthews, and Christopher Ruocchio discuss Overruled, a science fiction anthology with a law and order theme. It's lawyers in space, as artist and author Tom Kidd talks about his story of a star-traveling artist in the dock for murder represented by an annoying, but humorous, robot barrister, Susan R. Matthews discusses an arbitration proceeding in the far reaches of the Gonebeyond Space of her Under Jurisdiction series that's on the verge of turning a riot, and Christopher Ruocchio, who is coeditor of the volume, talks about a tale set in a far-future Roman-Empire-like setting featuring a witch trial for a cyborg; and David Weber's Uncompromising Honor, Part 8.
Rick and Michal talk with the author of Empire of Silence, Christopher Ruocchio. They hit a ton of different topics of conversation; philosophy, Star Wars, publishing, Dune, and all kinds of things in between.
