At long last, the promised Star Trek Vanguard Authors’ Roundtable Podcast is live and available for download and streaming playback thanks to John S. Drew and Keith R.A. DeCandido at The Chronic Rift.

This roughly hour-long discussion brings together the Vanguard series’ original editor, Marco Palmieri, myself, and fellow authors and creative partners Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. We answer questions submitted by fans, covering everything from the saga’s inception to its finale.

We also announce the winners of the Star Trek Vanguard autographed book sets — congratulations to Johnny Blues and Nick Fisher — as well as the special-prize recipient, Rick Mackey, who receives a limited-edition lenticular poster of the cover art from the series’ first novel, Harbinger.

Another special treat is my April 17, 2012, 90-minute audio interview with Timewarp and Nydra at TrekRadio.net, and which is now available via the Trek Radio On Demand page. We discussed not only Star Trek Vanguard but also my recent Mirror Universe novel Rise Like Lions, my upcoming trilogy Cold Equations, and the writing life in general.

PLUS! COMING UP ON MONDAY, APRIL 23 from 3PM–5PM, I will be back on Trek Radio with a very special presentation: The Music of Star Trek Vanguard. I will be sharing not only commentary but also complete musical tracks that were either mentioned in the text of the novels or that inspired specific events, characters, and the master arc of the series itself. This promises to be a unique glimpse into both my creative process and the backstory of the saga.

Newsflash, Sports Fans!

On Tuesday, April 17, 2012, from 4PM-5PM ET (1PM-2PM PT), I will be chatting live via Skype with hosts Timewarp-DJ & Nydra at TrekRadio.net about my recent Star Trek novels Storming Heaven and Rise Like Lions, my drinking habits, random things that piss me off, and what new projects I have coming up.

Tune in to listen, and tweet your questions to the hosts at @TrekRadio before tomorrow’s interview. The interview will probably also be available for download or streaming playback after we’re done, so check back for that link if you miss tomorrow’s show.

In other podcast news, stay tuned for an update on when the Vanguard Authors’ Roundtable Podcast will go live courtesy of the folks at The Chronic Rift, and I’ll have news soon about a special music-related Vanguard streaming podcast that’s currently in the works.

I’m thrilled to be able to announce that my Star Trek Mirror Universe novel Rise Like Lions has been named Story of the Year in this years “Top of the Pulps” fan-nominated and fan-voted poll on Unreality-SF.net. This is my second time winning the Unreality-SF.net poll. (My first was in 2008, for my novel Star Trek Destiny, Book I: Gods of Night.)

This year’s contest was no cakewalk; my book was up against some tough competition. As I wrote in my acceptance statement:

I felt honored to see my work nominated by readers, especially among titles by other such enormously talented authors. To be completely honest, I didn’t expect it to win; I anticipated the award would go to Christopher L. Bennett’s brilliant Watching the Clock, Kirsten Beyer’s superlative Children of the Storm, or James Luceno’s runaway bestseller Darth Plagueis. I am deeply flattered to see my work recognized in this manner, and I’m grateful to everyone at Unreality-SF.net who helped organize and administrate the voting.

At any rate, to all who nominated and voted for Rise Like Lions, I thank you, and I hope my work continues to entertain you and excite your imaginations for years to come.
