It's a great alt-history book with threat of alien invasion, space battles, and social upheaval. I think you'll enjoy our talk about the characters and the journey in this story.You can learn more about RWW Greene's work at his website HERE.  He is also active on Twitter, where you can connect with him or ask questions about his stories.

Anne and I have been friends for a few years now and I'm so grateful to have met her. Through her Wifi-Scifi events, the Wifi-Scifi writers group she hosts, and one on one mentorship, my writing went from a mess of conflicting POVs, flat characters and uninteresting dialog, to a request for a writing sample from a literary agent. Anne's mentorship took me from ground zero and built my confidence to where I'm certain that I'll be a traditionally published author soon.Which is why I'm so high on her Author's Toolbox (Link HERE). You're not going to find a better introductory price on such a great course. I could say more, but the simple fact is, Anne's mentorship works. I'm living, breathing proof of it. And so are many of my friends who have leant me their testimonials in this episode. So check out The Author's Toolbox and then contact Anne through her website or on Twitter. And when you've finished listening to this episode, I hope you'll subscribe so you can listen to other great authors talk about their books and writing process.

I had the most wonderful talk with Daniel Schwabauer about his latest book, Maxine Justice, Galactic Attorney. The book is a not-so-serious take on first contact with an alien race that wants to take over the world, in a way that you might not expect. Daniel and I talk about his other works too, including Operation Grendel, in addition to his latest novel. As a fellow Kansas native, I had a lot of fun talking with Daniel about writing science fiction with a Christian world view.  You can learn more about Daniel Schwabauer's work at his website HERE.

We take a short break this week to focus on reading science fiction in a more general way. Seth Heasley, host of the show, "Hugos There," joins me to talk about reading over 60 Hugo award winners (and counting). We discuss a lot of issues in this episode, but I think you'll appreciate Seth's thoughts on reading books from an era different than our own, with ethics that go along with that. “I like to think of the modern books as in conversation with the more classic ones.” Seth also talks with me about other podcasts that fans of the science fiction genre will enjoy, notably: Hugo GirlHugo and Nebula Readership PodcastScifi Sidebar (vintage woke statement)You can learn more about Seth Heasley's work at his show's website HERE.

Debut author Khan Wong (Angry Robot Books) joins me for this episode to talk about his own circus career, the importance of a pension in writing, and of course, his debut novel, The Circus Infinite.

I've wanted to get Gareth Powell, author of 16 books and several shorter works, on my show for over a year and a half.

SI Clarke is the indie author of several books, including her current series, Starship Teapot, with novels The Left hand of Dog and Judgment Dave.

Mike Chen is the author of four books (more on the way) and several short stories and articles. He's also covered the NHL for ESPN. He joined me to talk about his newest novel, Light Years  from Home, which is the story of a family's struggle after two members of the family are abducted by aliens. I found the story to be very compelling. The dynamics were well laid out and convincing. I felt the angst, the worry, the pain felt by those left behind. And of course the sci-fi element was good as well.You can learn more about Mike Chen's work at his website HERE. His Twitter feed is HERE.
