New Interview with Steve Mollmann & Michael Schuster

My interview with Steve Mollmann and Michael Schuster is now online over at Unreality SF.

Among other things we talk about their short novel Tear of Eridanus, recently released in Myriad Universes: Shattered Light, their debut novella The Future Begins and their upcoming Original Series novel A Choice of Catastrophes.

A Choice of Catastrophes is “set in early 2268, so smack-dab in the middle of the original series,” as Michael discloses. “The main character is Doctor McCoy, and he has one entire thread almost to himself, whereas Kirk, Spock, and the rest of the landing party have to share theirs,” in which “they get enough danger and action to make up for it.”

Getting a bit more into the specifics of the book’s narrative, he adds that “while McCoy has to find a way to save the lives of a handful of people that have inexplicably fallen into a coma as well as the lives of everybody aboard the Enterprise when the ship is threatened by a destructive space phenomenon, Kirk et al. are exploring a mysterious planet that seems abandoned by the civilisation it was once inhabited by. What they discover is a terrible crime in progress, and they will need all their skills to put a stop to it and capture the perpetrators before they escape.
You can read the full interview here.

Very interesting thanks for posting. Oh, and I'm still working my way through Tears of Eridanus, and I'm really enjoying it so far. I absolutely love Vulcans, Andorians, and the Sulus so it's right up my alley.

So, wait...Jaime Costas is now gone too?? That's what, three editors in three years?

As to the books mentioned here, I can't wait for A Choice of Catastrophes. I've always been a sucker for a McCoy story!

Absolutely loved the Tears of Eridanus guys! It was a wonderful read, and a nice twist to the universe we know.
