The site was having serious technical difficulties. The interview started late and Far Orbit author Eric Choi (“From a Stone”) was locked out completely. It was a pity, because I was looking forward to hearing what Eric had to say. Eric is the first winner of the Asimov Award (now the Dell Magazines Award) and he is an Aurora Award winner for his anthology “The Dragon and the Stars.” Eric is an aerospace engineer who worked on the Phoenix Mars Lander meteorology payload and he was among the final forty candidates (out of more than 5,000) vying to become the third cadre of Canadian astronauts. Eric is currently co-editing the forthcoming a hard SF anthology “Carbide Tipped Pens” with Ben Bova which will be published at end of the year by Tor books. You can find out more about Eric by visiting his website: http://www.aerospacewriter.ca/
You can listen to our abbreviated interview by following the link below. Please move ahead to the seven minute mark to skip over Jason’s exasperated and valiant efforts to vanquish the Google gremlins who were gleefully pulling wires and connection thingies from his control board. Note to self: Need to invent a better digital bug spray.
Thanks, Jason. I enjoyed talking with you and Wendy.
