July 21, 2013: A 17 (actually, 21) Question Science Fiction Book Meme!

September 18, 2009: Author Matthew Woodring Stover Answers Your Questions!

Before I turn today's blog over to author Matthew Woodring Stover, I need to thank two people.  First up, author and SGU creative consultant John Scalzi who recommended Heroes Die as a potential Book of the Month Club selection back in January.  I knew absolutely nothing about the novel going in, but trusted in John…

July 22, 2009: September’s Book of the Month Club Pick = Heroes Die, by Matthew Woodring Stover! A Sharon Taylor Update! And the SGU Practical Puddle!

Back in January when Stargate: Universe consultant and best-selling SF author John Scalzi was in town, I took him to - where else? - Fuel where, over the course of our dinner conversation, the subject of my humble little book club came up.  I asked John if he could recommend a possible future selection.
