Charles’s Recent Updates

“Because in the Renaissance, broadly integrative thought was at a premium; empirical method was in its infancy. Now, with the tools of measurement so highly refined, we produce lots of narrow specialists but fewer expansive thinkers.” “Well,”
Charles E. Gannon, Fire with Fire

“Doctor, if something goes wrong, there is probably squat-all we can do about it, anyway. I’m sure you folks have been chatting about the ship that just came in so you’re probably guessing the same thing I am: that if these Dornaani wanted to put their foot up our ass and wriggle their toes out our nostrils, I doubt there’s a thing in creation we could do about it.”

Charles E. Hi Everyone:

I will be interviewed by the Sword and Laser podcast's dynamic duo--Veronica and Tom--on Tuesday, November 10. I will post links to the interview when it's available.

And you can be an integral participant: Sword and Laser is largely audience driven. Their questions are mostly taken from questions YOU submit, with a tendency to pick those that show up most frequently on their Goodreads Group page, where people post what they'd like the upcoming interviewee to talk about.

So: the posting area for my upcoming interview is open for business. Just sign up to join the group (see the bottom of the page: no commitment required other than that, and you can remain a member or not as you wish). Once you're signed in, you can ask any questions you'd like--even those which border on series spoilers!

I'm really looking forward to hearing/seeing what interests you and piques your curiosity the most about the series, my other writing, or my work as a writer (or consultant or professor). And in the balance, you'll come into contact with a great podcast and its really fun hosts!

Go here to post your questions and learn more:

Thanks everyone--and since I can see who asked which questions, if yours is asked, I'll hope to shout out to you as I do!
