126. Myke Cole (a.k.a. Sergeant Tibbs) — Fortress Frontier (An Interview)

29 Jan

Magic, the military, ethics, and more, oh my!  Myke Cole joins us to talk about his new book, Shadow Ops:  Fortress Frontier, the sequel to his excellent Shadow Ops:  Control Point (we interviewed him about that book here).  We discuss everything from book trailers to superhero ethics to worldbuilding and narrative development.  Plus, Myke and Shaun give us something really disturbing to think about involving a giant salad bowl…

We hope you enjoy the episode!
