New Interview with S.D. Perry and Britta Burdett Dennison
 
Just in time for Unreality SF's second birthday there's another new interview online, this time with S.D. Perry and Britta Burdett Dennison.

In the interview we talk about Star Trek: Inception, their 2009 Wonder Woman novelisation, Britta's solo debut Freedom Angst in the Star Trek: Seven Deadly Sins anthology and how their collaboration works.

Quote:

Given that information, it sounds as if Inception is the same S.D. Perry-written Carol Marcus novel which was rumoured quite a few years ago. Is that the case? “That’d be the same one,” Danelle confirms. “The book was written about the same time that the new movie script was being passed around. Knowing that the book and the new movie were both set prior to TOS, our editor decided that it would be best to wait and see if there were contradictions that needed to be addressed. Marco has since left Pocket, and the acting editor felt that the book and movie were different enough that it would be kosher to publish.”

Interesting interview. Britta Dennison's Seven Deadly Sins story seems promising, despite my lack of enthusiasm for DS9's Mirror Universe.

Quote:

I wanted to give this story a really dark feel, almost noir-ish, and I feel like that ultimately came through very well.” In Freedom Angst, the Mirror Universe is the representing the sin Lust, a combination decided by the book’s editor “because he wanted me specifically to do the Mirror Universe, and he felt that Lust was the best of the ‘sins’ for that particular theme.” But having been assigned to Lust actually played into Britta’s hands. “Given the choice, I am sure I would have chosen lust, since I prefer writing character-driven fiction over plot-driven, and I also like to get really sordid with the interpersonal themes in my stories!
I've always wondered how those too divided the work on their novels (note: I haven't read Interception). I think I have a good idea now which parts of Night of the Wolves and Dawn of the Eagles were Britta's work - there were a few complex, dark and somewhat "sordid" interpersonal dynamics, which is one of things I really enjoyed about the novels. Judging by S.D. Perry's solo DS9 novels, she seems to excel at the spiritual and mystical elements, which I've also thoroughly enjoyed. And the combination of the two is delightful. :bolian:
