Great - Except for the Glitch...

This is a great well of advice and insight for writers. The only problem, and the reason I rated this collection 4 stars instead of 5, is that there seems to be some sort of glitch that I hope they can work out. If you'll notice, "Ian McMillan and Repetition," and "Poetry and Surrealism" are both 5 minutes 4 seconds. That is no coincidence - they are the same broadcast. "Poetry and Surrealism" is just "Ian McMillan and Repetition" again. Oh, the irony. As an aspiring novelist, I was looking forward to listening to "The Structure and Development of Novels" with Hilary Mantel, but playing that role is "Poetry and Surrealism." There is no "Structure and Development" broadcast. Hence the retracted star. Other than that, it's great stuff!
