Elucidate No. 40 - Will Ludwigsen

Will Ludwigsen is a published writer of novels and short stories mainly in the Sci-fi and horror genres. He's also an adjunct professor of writing at University of North Florida. - In this episode I get to know Will a little better, and there's a lot to talk with him about that we didn't get to, even for a two hour episode. Hopefully he'll return to continue our conversations. - In this episode we talk about what it's like growing up in a staunch republican environment in “The South”, society, the internet, writing, and books.
