My interview with David A. McIntee is now online over at Unreality SF. In it we talk about his recent The Next Generation novel Indistinguishable from Magic, his previous Trek works, his upcoming non-Fiction book about Blake's 7 and more.

Indistinguishable from Magic is the first novel set after the Typhon Pact miniseries, and David explains that it’s “about Geordi joining Scotty on the U.S.S. Challenger, to investigate how a ship that couldn’t exist does exist. Guinan is also along, for reasons of her own, and a variety of familiar characters are also on the mission, including Nog, who is a member of the Challenger’s crew. As they go along, the things they’ll discover will revisit some loose ends and give Geordi some development.”

He also reveals that while Indistinguishable from Magic is “fairly standalone”, the Typhon Pact novels had an impact on the novel. “The presence of one guest character had to be tweaked at the copy edit stage to follow on from one of the Typhon Pact books, and obviously Geordi’s relationship from Paths of Disharmony had to be taken into account.”

Forgot to post this Yesterday (but I have a good excuse since I was busy with finally kick-starting my next Unreality SF article) :

My review of Una McCormack's ([ profile] altariel ) 11th Doctor Doctor Who novel The King's Dragon is now online over at Unreality SF.

"As always, Una McCormack's star shines especially bright when it comes to characterisations. Despite the fact that she couldn't have seen more than a few episodes and most likely had to base a lot of it on the scripts, she captures all three regulars really well. Their interactions feel true to the TV show and are fun throughout the novel - I have no problems imagining Matt Smith, Karen Gillan or Arthur Davill saying their lines from this book.


All in all The King's Dragon is a fun, well-written Eleventh Doctor tale. Once I was over my shock over the low page count, I enjoyed the novel very much and would definitely check out any future Una McCormack-penned Doctor Who novels."
