KSFR RADIO 101.1 FM SANTA FE NM

Producer and Host: Abigail Adler

Guest: Fred Van Lente

Fred Van Lente just published his second novel- The Con Artist. The scene of the action is ComiCon San Diego, one of the massive conventions that attracts comic book aficionados, addicts and authors.

Van Lente is best known as a New York Times best-selling comics writer.  He creates the text for the hard-hitting, irreverent superhero series, Archer and Armstrong. He is also the author of non-fiction comics with weightier subjects like the series, Action Philosophers.

Fred Van Lente co-wrote the graphic novel, Cowboys and Aliens, which was made into a film staring Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig.

Van Lente's first book, Ten Dead Comedians, was a thinly veiled show business satire.

He joins us by phone from Brooklyn, new York.

Guest: Bob Puglisi

BOB PUGLISI has just published his fourth book- Unassisted Living with the tagline-   Never cross a mob of angry seniors.

Before becoming an author, Puglisi's career took some dramatic turns from computer programmer and technical writer for major IT corporations to actor, screenwriter and author. He also worked as part time librarian at the Old Rock Library in Crested Butte, Colorado for 15 years. 

In 2000, he received a fellowship from the Colorado Council on the Arts for his screenplay BIG WHITE BONNEVILLE. He then produced it as a short film that made the rounds of the film festival circuit. He adapted that screenplay into a novel -MIDNIGHT AUTO SUPPLY in 2016.

His next book ALMOST A WISEGUY was written with and about a friend’s life in the Mafia. That project evolved into a podcast  and  an audio book.

He now lives in Santa Fe NM
