Signal Boost #18: Michael J. Martinez (MJ-12: Shadows) and Patrick Hester (Samantha Kane: Into the Fire)

12 Sep

In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Michael J. Martinez, author of The Daedaelus Trilogy, joins Paul to talk about the second book of his Majestic-12 trilogy, MJ-12: Shadows. They discuss how truth is crazier than fiction and how that led to Mike writing a secret history instead of an alternate history.

Then Patrick Hester, a Hugo award winning podcaster and Skiffy and Fanty Arch-Nemesis, joins Jen to talk about his urban fantasy novel, Samantha Kane: Into the Fire. They talk about how Patrick found the voice of Samantha Kane and how Into the Fire sets itself apart from most urban fantasy with its focus on family relationships.
