Omega Directive podcast interview, and they’re talking about us over at Literary Treks!

It’s been a busy week, so I’m a bit behind on feeding the Blog Beast. That included all but forgetting that a new interview with me has been posted. Then I felt my ears burning as people who’ve interviewed me in the past were talking about me again, and I guess they figured I wouldn’t find out?

Please. I’m a writer with a fragile ego. I cringe whenever my name is said aloud.

First up? Local Kansas City fan Steve Atwell has launched a podcast, The Omega Directive, which he describes as a place for “Casual discussions & in-depth interviews about Star Trek. We’ll chat with writers, artists, actors, directors, & fans who’ve contributed to the franchise – canon & non, over its 50 year run. We’ll also talk about its cultural impact, & examine the elements within that make it tick.”

For his third episode, Steve reached out to me, and among the various topics of discussion was my book from last year, Hidden Universe Travel Guides – Star Trek: The Klingon Empire. The conversation bounces around a bit, of course, from how I got into writing to being a Star Trek fan and even a trip down Memory Lane and my time in the military. Steve even finds a way to bring up a goofy story I wrote, about four guys sitting in a movie theater waiting for Star Trek V to start. Yeah…we bounced around a bit.

If you’re needing something to stick in your ears during a work commute or while you toil in the yard, feel free to have a listen:

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the digital space, Literary Treks hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther have devoted a recent episode of their podcast to mine and Kevin’s first novel-length collaboration, A Time To Sow, the third in the 9-book Star Trek: A Time To… series published by Pocket Books during 2004. Talk about your blasts from the past? It’s actually been a long time since I gave any serious thoughts to this series, let alone this book and its companion, A Time To Harvest, so it was nice to hear about it from someone who just recently read it. Have a listen to Bruce and Dan’s conversation about the book:

Many thanks to Steve to for having me on his show, and to Bruce and Dan for their continued coverage of the ever-expanding Star Trek literary universe.
