Shardcast: Janci Patterson on Bastille and Cytoverse

Today we have a special episode, talking with author Janci Patterson on Bastille vs. the Evil Librarians, along with some stuff about the Cytoverse. We also randomly talk about dog bones and weresharks. It's lots of fun! 

In addition to Janci, we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), and Kadie (Aon Ene).

Great interview! For stuff I'd like to see in future Cytoverse books, the top thing would probably be more human civilizations. These were teased in Skyward (not intentionally, but as a logical conclusion when it came to worldbuilding) and explicitly mentioned in Starsight, but we haven't seen any yet. I'd love to see these in a future book!

Definitely, yeah. Starlight makes it clear there are some humans other than the Defiants, but we know hardly anything about them.
