We chat with Nicholas Sansbury Smith, the grandfather of the post-apocalyptic genre! (I call him that, at least.) We discuss his experiences as a hybrid author and how that works with his numerous and successful series. He talks about how hard it can be to end a series. With so many series in his catalog, he should know! He also talks about his collaboration with Tony Melchiorri for the Orbs 4 book and his ideas for futures collaborations. And the Rorschach Round goes straight soothsayer as he predicts both how the world will end and what will happen when we have first contact with aliens. Yeah, we figure it all out, basically. All that and more!
