Dayton Ward talks Paths of Disharmony, Vanguard and more

My interview with Dayton Ward is now online over at Unreality SF.

In it we talk about his latest novel, Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony, the state of the Star Trek Universe post-Destiny, the two upcoming Vanguard books and his original endeavours.

Quote:
How far ahead is the future of Vanguard planned out at the moment? “David Mack’s next book, which will follow ours sometime in 2012, has been plotted from a general, high-level standpoint,” Dayton tells us. “In the past, Kevin and I largely did our own thing, working with the editor to plot our own books, while Dave did the same for his books. We shared info back and forth, of course, just to make sure we weren’t stepping on any toes. With the sixth and seventh novels, there’s been a lot more communication and shared brainstorming as we helped each other to develop the overall plots for both books. Based on the conversations Dave and Kevin and I have been having over the past year or so, we know most of the major beats and how his book will end. What hasn’t yet been determined is how he’ll navigate all the wickets from beginning to end. Knowing Dave, I expect it will be quite the ride. As for what might happen after that? That’s another discussion to be had down the road.”
You can read the interview here. Please note that the first few paragraphs of the interview contain spoiler for Paths of Disharmony. If you want to avoid spoilers for Paths of Disharmony please click here to jump to the non-spoilerish parts of the interview.

Great interview.

I really need to get around to reading TLWW and Counterstrike, but I'm waiting for the money to do that.

No idea what you're talking about. *whistles innocently*

(Editing the copy-and-paste mistake at Facebook isn't as easy though. *sigh*)
