SF Signal Welcomes Carl Slaughter!

We’re super-excited to welcome Carl Slaughter to the SF Signal team!

The keen eye will have noticed that a slew of new, in-depth interviews have been appearing in this space for the last few weeks. That’s because of the efforts of Carl Slaughter, who, we are happy to say, is our newest contributor.

Here’s a bit about Carl:

Carl Slaughter wrote many reviews for Tangent before moving to Diabolical Plots as a reviewer and later an interviewer. He conducted 50 plus interviews for Diabolical Plots. For the past 14 years, he has traveled the globe teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) in 6 countries on 3 continents. Carl has traveled to 18 countries and counting. (He’s tired.) In college, Carl studied journalism, broadcasting, advertising, English, speech, and history. For several years, he was a stringer for the Associated Press. His essay on Chinese culture was published in Beijing Review. His essay on Korean culture was published in The Korea Times, as was his expose on the Korean ESL industry. His travel/education reports about Thailand occasionally appear on the Ajarn website. Carl subscribes to the Mike Resnick philosophy of fiction: It’s all about the characters. Check out Carl’s Diabolical Plots interviews, his Facebook photos with his students of all ages from around the world, and a short Youtube video of Carl with some VERY excited Thai kindergarteners.

Carl will continue doing interviews and offering other contributions like his book and author profiles. Check out his latest post, in which he chats with Laura Resnick about her Esther Diamond series!

But first, please join me in welcoming Carl to the SF Signal team!

    Hi and welcome Carl! An expose on Korean culture? I don’t know if I have time to read it, but I’m sure interested. I taught ESL in Daejon for six months and loved that culture.

    Hello Tim. Here’s a link to my essay on Korean Culture.
