    Dr. Scott Debb, Science behind the Science Fiction: Cyber Psychology

    Dr. Scott Debb, Science behind the Science Fiction: Cyber Psychology

    Every now and again, Coffee in Space takes a pause from author interviews to discuss the science behind our science fiction. For this episode, the show visits Norfolk State University in Virginia (USA) to talk cyber psychology with Dr. Scott Debb, associate professor for psychology.

    On the show, we discussed what the program is and who it's for, some examples of how psychology is playing out around us today, and what it means for science fiction.

    To learn more about the MS in cyber psychology, visit the Norfolk State University Website and write Dr. Debb directly with any questions.

    Taylor Anderson Purgatory's Shore

    Taylor Anderson Purgatory's Shore

    Taylor Anderson is, to put it bluntly, a friend of the Coffee in Space podcast. Not only have I enjoyed every single interaction I've had with him, but he's also lent me his audience and his pull. He's taught me so very much about alternate history and speculative fiction. More than that, he's taught me how to fall in love with a character.

    And so many people have fallen in love with Taylor's Characters. If you get nothing else from this interview, I hope you've understand a touch of what makes Taylor such a gifted writer. His worldbuilding, of course, is on point. It has to be because of the alternate world and history in which he writes. But it's more than just worldbuilding. It's characters we want to love. Taylor nails it.

    Enjoy this episode and then the next one, which is ten more minutes with Taylor. I think you'll be happy you did. Get it HERE.

    And when you're done listening, grab a copy of Purgatory's Shore!

    You can learn more about Taylor at his website HERE. A great resource for learning more, once you're a bonified fan of Taylor's writing, is to visit this FB fan group.

    Jadie Jang: Monkey Around

    Jadie Jang: Monkey Around

    Claire Light, writing as Jadie Jang, has written about one of my favorite characters in Chinese folklore, the Monkey King. I think you'll enjoy this interview as much as I enjoyed it. In our interview, Jadie and I discussed themes, the Monkey King in folklore, and recreating San Francisco as a character.

    Her book is called Monkey Around, and it starts with a really cool fight scene. Enjoy!

    We also discussed the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, which you can learn more about HERE.

    You can learn more about Jadie Jang at her website HERE and Twitter HERE.

    Ronie Kendig: Toz Files, Droseran Saga

    Ronie Kendig: Toz Files, Droseran Saga

    Disclaimer: This episode includes an interview with a Christian author, who writes science fiction and military/paramilitary thrillers. If you are concerned about discussions of faith, please consider skipping this episode and checking in again next week. Thank you!

    I had the honor of interviewing popular author Ronie Kendig, author of over 25 novels and novellas. Her Tox Files series is well known and two books (Conspiracy of Silence, Crown of Souls) of the series won RT Reviewer's Choice Awards . Her new series, the Droseran Saga, takes her writing into new places, but Ronie's style and substance, as well as her character-driven process, remains ever present.

    You can get her latest book here, Dawn of Vengeance.

    To learn more about Ronie's writing, go to her website HERE. You can also check her out on TWITTER, FACEBOOK, and INSTAGRAM.

Super Insightful!

Books have been a part of my daily routine since that first Aha! moment when I learned my first word. Getting to delve into the background of the author, inspiration, and individual creativity is what makes reading and rereading books so much more entertaining. 10/10 recommend!
