Literary blogger Anna Palij has published a new interview with me on her blog, The Writer’s Pane. It’s not a book-pimping exercise disguised as an interview. This is an honest-to-goodness “getting to know you” kind of interview. Herewith, a small sample of our online correspondence: Where do you find inspiration? Wherever I can, to be […]

"Review posted at Fantasy Literature."
The Midnight Front by David Mack
"Amazing worldbuilding and a fascinating premise. A brutal, unsparing war drama mixed with rich fantasy. Like Supernatural on Steroids plus Inglorious Basterds.

Pike’s solemnity turned to melancholy. “How can it be, after all that the human race went through on Earth in the last few centuries, that some people still haven’t learned there are more important things in life than financial gain?”

“Looking back on my lifetime of travels,” she said to him, “I am forced to conclude the universe has only two true constants: entropy and selfishness.” As she had hoped, her observation drew a half smile from Pike. “Don’t give up hope,” he said. “Selfishness will go away once the universe runs out of sentient beings.”

David Mack, The Persistence of Memory

“Starship command is like comedy, Number One. Timing is everything.”
David Mack, Destiny: The Complete Saga: Gods of Night, Mere Mortals, and Lost Souls

“Drinkin’ two-fisted are ya?” “It’s all right, love—I’m a writer.”

“I read a report from Starfleet Command last year that said you’d met the Greek deity Apollo. I was just wondering . . . did that really happen?” Kirk glanced at someone off-screen, then his mouth curled upward with playful mischief. “I prefer to think that Apollo met me. . . . Enterprise out.”
