The B&N Podcast

Mar 23, 2018

What happens when you turn your childhood obsessions with science fiction, fantasy and video games into a novel that contains them — and then that story itself becomes a touchstone for a new generation of fans?  That's what happened with Ernest Cline and Ready Player One, the bestselling story of a lone gamer in a dystopian future who has to use his knowledge of 80s pop culture to defeat an evil corporation — in both the virtual and real worlds. In this episode, recorded live at the 2017 San Diego Comic Con, Cline talks with B&N’s Joel Cunningham about his novel and his excitement to see it turned into a film by Steven Speilberg.
