I am not the comic book artist, but the science fiction writer. One day maybe I'll meet the guy; I hear he's awesome. I do get that question a lot.
Hmm, like my friend Greg Cox, the description of my TOS book Devil's Bargain is based on an older outline. The colonial world is not a mining colony, but a producer of a beer famous in the local sector. The Horta are are recruited to help avoid an asteroid strike that's going to destroy the colony. Having fun writing it at the moment... Tony D.
Sorry, but I can't resist this, Mr. Daniel... are you in any way related to Tony S. Daniel, the artist from DC Comics? Because if you're not, you both have the same first name.
Also, we have the blurbs for these but not the one for In Tempest's Wake? What is wrong?
