Re: Literary Treks

Listening to the James Swallow interview. Your Skype connection is terrible, his audio keeps cutting out. Can you tell me what the Jack Ryan quote in Cast No Shadow was?

It's a great interview.

Unfortunately you had to start off on the wrong foot by reminding me of Johnny Football's dismantling of my Sooners.

The Stuff of Dreams part was interesting too since I just finished reading that.

I will have to listen to it again. That was not the best connection the first tim we had him on. I am sorry about that.

Can't say I'm sorry about Johnny Football

Re: Literary Treks

No problem. I just couldn't quite make that part out. I thought the Vaughn / Ryan connection was cool, and that he did a little homage, but the audio cut out during the quote.

Dude you guys have a great QB. Glad to see a Big 12 team (and not even one of our stronger teams, though maybe with that QB you are) could go over to the SEC and be that competitive. I was glad to see y'all stick it to 'Bama. You guys have some great years ahead of you.

Blame me, that's my naff internet connection...

The Jack Ryan reference in Cast No Shadow is on page 74, a nod to a line from The Hunt For Red October - "Next time, Jack, write a goddamn memo."

Re: Literary Treks

"Cast No Shadow", is my favorite stand alone Trek book. The James Swallow interview was awesome. I think it is awesome when authors throw in a little homage to other authors or IP's

Those easter eggs are really fun and make being a geek a blast

Re: Literary Treks

Nice to hear you review and discuss the older Startrek books Especially Shadows on the Sun.That's one of my favorite novels about DR.McCoy. Also Achoice of Catastrophies and the Crucible novel about him.

Re: Literary Treks

Reunion might be a good choice considering how it ties into the Stargazer series.
