The Novel Analyst Podcast


Welcome to the Novel Analyst podcast! I’m Jed Herne and each episode I analyse a story to help you become a better writer. My goal is to use the books I love to improve my own writing - and hopefully improve yours in the process! My own stories have been published or are forthcoming in The Arcanist, The Scarlet Leaf Review, Flintlock, and more. Tweet me @JedHerne. New episodes published every 2nd Tuesday at 8am Perth time.

23 - The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams pt. 1 - Why Characters Don't Matter.

This absurdly funny sci-fi comedy is a fantastic example of how you don't always need amazing characters to create an amazing story. Buckle up as we use Orson Scott Card's MICE quotient to analyse what makes this novel work. And remember: don't panic!
