Literary Treks 142: Star Trek vs. Godzilla

The Original Series: The Latter Fire
Interview with author James Swallow!




Star Trek has always featured outlandish ideas such as huge space creatures and other pretty out-there science fiction concepts. However, at its core, Star Trek is really about the struggles that we all face in overcoming negative forces such as violence and fear to come together to build a better world. No one understands that basic idea more than renowned Trek author James Swallow!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by James Swallow to talk about his latest book, The Latter Fire. We discuss the genesis of the story, world-building, fear, prejudice and preconceptions, a romantic foil, stretching the Prime Directive, a cosmozoan, everyone has something to do, what's next for James and where to find him.
