The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 165): WorldCon Interview with Douglas Hulick

In episode 165 of the SF Signal Podcast, Patrick Hester chats at WorldCon with Douglas Hulick, author of Among Thieves.

About Douglas Hulick: Douglas Hulick was born in Fargo, ND, but spent much of his life moving about the Midwest. Somehow, he kept ending up in the vicinity of Chicago, IL, which helps explain his abiding love of deep-dish pizza, Ferris Bueller, and Goose Island beer. Somewhere along the way, a copy of A Dictionary of the Underworld by Eric Partridge fell into Douglas’s hands. Having sold a few fantasy short stories, Douglas thought a book that defined historical thieves cant (criminal jargon) and described some of the practices of that world might come in handy at some point. Little did he know. Among Thieves, his first novel, grew out of this unlikely seed over the course of a decade. It was acquired by Roc/Penguin U.S.A. on Douglas’s 44th birthday in 2009. Douglas lives with his wife and two sons in Minnesota. When not writing or chasing after his kids, he likes to practice and teach 17th century Italian rapier combat (in the tradition of Ridolfo Capoferro), cook, read, and hang out in coffee shops.

  1. My Itunes hiccuped and I only got this episode today. Volume seemed low but otherwise it was a good episode.

    I’m glad Doug gave a shout out to underrated writer Lyda Morehouse. I was one of those few people who bought her books years ago…

  2. Thanks for the tip for a great-looking reference book, “A Dictionary of the Underworld.” Just did some online searching and found a used copy for a great price. I can’t wait to get it and absorb it!
