New David A. McIntee interview

My interview with David A. McIntee is now online over at Unreality SF. In it we talk about his recent The Next Generation novel Indistinguishable from Magic, his previous Trek works, his upcoming non-Fiction book about Blake's 7 and more.

Indistinguishable from Magic is the first novel set after the Typhon Pact miniseries, and David explains that it’s “about Geordi joining Scotty on the U.S.S. Challenger, to investigate how a ship that couldn’t exist does exist. Guinan is also along, for reasons of her own, and a variety of familiar characters are also on the mission, including Nog, who is a member of the Challenger’s crew. As they go along, the things they’ll discover will revisit some loose ends and give Geordi some development.”


He also reveals that while Indistinguishable from Magic is “fairly standalone”, the Typhon Pact novels had an impact on the novel. “The presence of one guest character had to be tweaked at the copy edit stage to follow on from one of the Typhon Pact books, and obviously Geordi’s relationship from Paths of Disharmony had to be taken into account.”
You can read the full interview here.

Very cool. Is there any way for someone in the US to see Blake's 7 now? I've been hearing about it for years, but I've never been able to see it.

Not legally. It may have been released on VHS over here, but there aren't R1 DVDs.

I want Indistinguishable from Magic to be not ‘my Trek novel’ but instead ‘my first Trek novel’
Second this.

It was released on VHS in the US many many years ago. Man I wish it was available on Region 1 DVD since I don't have a VCR any more...

there's always the back-catalogue... All those Dr Whos, Space 1999, Final Destination, Light Of Heaven... (the latter two distributed by S&S in the US and Canada)
