New James Swallow interview

My interview with James Swallow is finally online over at Unreality SF.

In it we talk about his recent Star Trek novel Cast No Shadow, his work in the Warhammer 40K universe, his involvement with the game Deus Ex Human Revolution and more.

Regarding her lack of appearances elsewhere, James is “not sure why it is other writers didn’t tackle her – apart from a single comic book story, she doesn’t appear anywhere else – but I always found her compelling. The reason I chose to write a story that filled in Valeris’s past and carried her beyond her last on-screen moments was because I was intrigued by the central mystery of her – what would make a Vulcan take part in a conspiracy on the scale of the one in STVI?”
You can find the full interview here.

Re: New James Swallow interview

Great interview.

I was never into W40K, but that makes it sound interesting.

Very interesting. I'm really looking forward to reading Cast No Shadow, and playing Human Revolution, but sadly, I haven't gotten a chance to either yet.

Re: New James Swallow interview

Does James go deeply into his motivations for writing certain aspects of Cast No Shadows? If so, I think I'm going to wait with reading this interview untill AFTER I've read Cast No Shadows. I find it more interesting to read an authors views after I finish a novel.

Re: New James Swallow interview

Mmmh, we weren't going into too much depth concerning the plot, as I usually try to remain relatively spoiler free with books that are upcoming or fairly new, but I guess the ending is spoiled during the discussion about where James was coming from writing the main characters Valeris and Vaughn.

Not sure if I'm really helpful here, especially because I'm pretty pain-free when it comes to spoilers myself, so maybe someone who has read both the book and the interview can chime in.

Thanks, I'll just wait untill after I've read it. It's the next novel in my Trek-list after What Judgement Comes.
