OT: New Interview with Aaron Rosenberg

My interview with Corps of Engineers alumnus Aaron Rosenberg is now online over at Unreality SF.

In it we talk about his recent Eureka tie-in novels Substitution Method and Road Less Traveled, his contributions to the original Scattered Earth series and more.

As a result, Aaron has contributed two of the three novels published so far: the very first, Substitution Method,and the most recent, Roads Less Traveled. “Substitution Method takes place between Seasons Three and Four and involves a strange and spreading phenomenon – houses are vanishing from town and being replaced by other houses from other cities!” Aaron explains. “This creates a number of problems, starting with the question of how to prevent the whole town from disappearing. But Eureka’s entire existence is highly classified, so having Eureka residents appear elsewhere and non-Eurekans show up in town is a major security breach! Sheriff Jack Carter heads out of town with Henry to locate the missing dwellings, and both his visiting sister Lexi and Deputy Jo Lupo help with those as well. Meanwhile, Zoe and Fargo make an unlikely team as they try to corral the unexpected visitors, and Allison and Zane work to find out what’s causing the problem in the first place.”
You can read the full interview here.

P.S.: Thanks to Rosalind and LightningStorm for allowing me to post the information here despite the lack of Star Trek content in the interview.

Re: OT: New Interview with Aaron Rosenberg

He's a Star Trek writer (or has been), so it should count. Look at KRAD, Dave Mack, Dayton Ward and Chris Bennett (and others) having their OT threads about their original fiction.

I asked Rosalind and LightningStorm in advance and they gave their O.K., I just wanted to thank them for that.

Re: OT: New Interview with Aaron Rosenberg

Really enjoyed the interview, thanks for sharing. It did make me raise the Arron's Eureka novels quite a bit in my reading schedule, and it also reminded me to add Birth or the Dread Remora to my wishlist.

Re: OT: New Interview with Aaron Rosenberg

Thanks for the compliments.

While it's fun and refreshing to have these non-Star Trek interviews once in a while, I think the next few will be Star Trek-related again, it's just where I feel the most comfortable.

While I have some tentative plans for the next few months, those are not set in stone, so any requests? No guarantees that those will happen, but I would take your requests under consideration.

Well, it's not exactly Trek, but I do know about this Warehouse 13 book coming out any day now . . .

Re: OT: New Interview with Aaron Rosenberg

Did you have anything planned for the release of Rise Like Lions, or Cast No Shadow?

Re: OT: New Interview with Aaron Rosenberg

Those two definitely crossed my mind, yes.

Although with the huge number of David Mack releases announced and the intention to not interview anyone (individually) more than once a year, when I'll approach him for another interview depends a bit on when we learn more about his projects beyond Rise Like Lions.

Re: OT: New Interview with Aaron Rosenberg

I definitely plan to read A Touch of Fever after I've read Declassified. (Both have the same release date for the Kindle. )

BTW: I'm currently working on writing down a first draft of an interview with Greg.

And a very comprehensive interview it was!

Re: OT: New Interview with Aaron Rosenberg

Yes, somewhere down the line.

It's sad how far I'm behind on my reviewing due to barely having the time to do anything during the week due to work, and trying to relax over the weekends.

Just to give you an idea: There are seven Star Trek books I still have to review, 2 Doctor Who novels and 1 Eureka novel.

At least I've learned from the past and have wrote down bare bone reviews in bullet point form about the books, so that it's easier to write proper reviews even some time after I've read them, but I really have to step up my game in that regard.
