Jason Anspach and Nick Cole on Military Scifi Series Galaxy’s Edge

This week, Jason Anspach and Nick Cole discuss writing their hot Military Scifi series, Galaxy’s Edge with Justin and Kevin.

JASON ANSPACH writes pulse-pounding science fiction and then, for a change of pace, quirky, communist-punching, detective throwbacks set in the 1950s.

Together with his wife, their seven children, and a border collie named Charlotte, Jason resides in a hundred year old Craftsman home in a blue collar city nestled in the Pacific Northwest. The house is very drafty, but a family that large has a way of keeping you warm.

Writing Mystery and Going from Comics to Novels with Fred Van Lente

Fred Van LenteComic Artist Fred Van Lente Released the Novel Ten Dead Comedians and is here to tell us about tit and about going from comic writer to novelist, and what that takes.

TEN DEAD COMEDIANS:

Fred Van Lente’s brilliant debut is both an homage to the Golden Age of Mystery and a thoroughly contemporary show-business satire.

As the story opens, nine comedians of various acclaim are summoned to the island retreat of legendary Hollywood funnyman Dustin Walker. The group includes a former late-night TV host, a washed-up improv instructor, a ridiculously wealthy “blue collar” comic, and a past-her-prime Vegas icon. All nine arrive via boat to find that every building on the island is completely deserted. Marooned without cell phone service or wifi signals, they soon find themselves being murdered one by one. But who is doing the killing, and why?

A darkly clever take on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None and other classics of the genre, Ten Dead Comedians is a marvel of literary ventriloquism, with hilarious comic monologues in the voice of every suspect. It’s also an ingeniously plotted puzzler with a twist you’ll never see coming! Continue reading
