To celebrate the release, here is a mini-documentary on Zahn:
I like how he compares writing to playing both sides of a game of chess (especially because I enjoy playing chess). When you have clever protagonists and antagonists, first you figure out a good move for one side, then turn the board around and figure out how the other side will get out of that sticky situation! Great comparison, Zahn.
A bit more on Zahn's books:
- The Blackcollar Series is a military science fiction series about a group of superhuman combatants
- A Coming of Age is a thoughtful tribute to what it means to come of age, face your fears, and even save the world. Readers of Dune, A Wrinkle in Time, Ender's Game, and The Chronicles of Narnia will be delighted to discover another tale that records the difficult yet crucial passage into adulthood.
- Spinneret poses a scientific puzzle whose answer could threaten humanity's salvation, or destruction.
