Re: Literary Treks

Outstanding job Matt As you said in the interview, James Swallow is "Fantastic!". James is a true Star Trek fan. It is evident from this interview and his writing, he has no qualms in acknowledging how much Trek has done for his career. And I for one am happy he has enjoyed writng trek as much as I've enjoyed reading his books.

Kudos to Marco Palmieri for pushing James to write Day of the Vipers. So many current trek authors have benefited from his friendship and editorial skills it is amazing.

I (like Matt and James) could not agree more on loving the Wrath of Khan uniforms/time period. Like Matt, The Undiscovered Country, is my favorite ST film and Jame's follow up book Cast No Shadow, is my all time favorite ST novel. It was AWESOME(!) to hear his thoughts and backstory on the book. I think he did an amazing job writing that book and I'd love to see him revisit that era

Thanks again Chris and Matt for an excellent show

Aw, thanks guys. I had a great time on the show. It's never a chore to talk about my love for Trek.

(Incidentally, Patrick O'Brien; if you have any specific questions about Cast No Shadow, feel free to post them here on TrekBBS and I'll answer if I can...)

It's really a honor to get to talk to the authors about their work and thoughts on Star Trek. Their passion for Trek and knowledge about is astounding. Hope you all keep listening.

Re: Literary Treks

Nice to hear so many British accents among the writers. Gives me hope.

Although James' accent foxed me slightly... mostly English, but there seemed to be a few Australian twangs coming in as well from time to time. And I say that as an English eprson who used to live in the US and got fed up of Americans not being able to tell the difference between English and Australian accents. Not that it matters.

Anyway - great interview. I didn't realise James had written The Slow Knife as well, but I loved that, and I loved Vipers, and I loved Synthesis. Haven't read Shadow yet, but the news that Vaughn is in it intrigues me...

He was wonderful to talk too and know so much! I cannot wait to have him back on the show and read his newest books.

Cast No Shadow is by far his best book(IMHO). I highly recommend it

Ha! Yeah, I get that a lot. I've also been asked if I'm Canadian or a New Zealander; but I'm 100% British, a London lad born and raised...
