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.
NICK COLE is a former soldier and working actor living in Southern California. When he is not auditioning for commercials, going out for sitcoms or being shot, kicked, stabbed or beaten by the students of various film schools for their projects, he can be found writing books. Nick’s Book The Old Man and the Wasteland was an Amazon Bestseller and #1 in Science Fiction. In 2016 Nick’s book CTRL ALT Revolt won the Dragon Award for Best Apocalyptic novel.
Author C.C. Ekeke shares his experience writing science fiction with Justin, which includes discussing what sort of subcategories work best in scifi, how to approach worldbuilding in these stories, and how to build a newsletter.
Lisa Janice (LJ) Cohen shares her advice on writing speculative fiction, how to approach craft, and what joining memberships like SFWA means.
LJ Cohen is a poet, novelist, blogger, local food enthusiast, Doctor Who fan, and relentless optimist. Lisa lives just outside of Boston with her family, two dogs (only one of which actually ever listens to her) and the occasional international student.
