Natalie Zina Walschots connects the dots between video games, poetry, and her new novel "Hench" with host Nancy Pearl. The book follows the plight of Anna, a supervillain's henchperson who's just trying to pay the rent. Walschots says she waited and waited for someone to tell the evil sidekick's story, but "slowly came to the terrible realization" that the responsibility fell to her. She shares how sci-fi and fantasy in all forms provided the perfect escapism for the self-proclaimed nerd, and how poetry served the opposite, but equally necessary function.
