Today’s interview is a combination of sorts. First, S. Ron Mars (a.k.a. Saul Garnell) talks about his comedic scifi short story, “Eat Fish and Die,” which we have a five minute sample of (12 minute to 17 minute mark). After that, we have a thirty minute conversation with Timothy C. Ward interviewing Saul and David Bischoff about recent news from Hotspur Publishing (including their deal with Crossroad Press) and their novels, Star Hounds and The Changeling Detective.

Books discussed:

Eat Fish and DieEat Fish and Die by S. Ron Mars

Warning: This is not a paranormal urban fantasy romance.

Stuck on a small planetoid, we find Major Joachim Merlot. He’s the military equivalent of a street sweeper, defending Earth against an alien race of stinking fish-like creatures. Merlot isn’t interested in being any kind of hero — he just wants to return home and see who won the office betting pool. His odds of making it back alive are only one in sixteen, but that doesn’t matter. He’s been issued a handy dandy Battle Ready Android with the fire power of an entire platoon. The only problem? He can’t let the android think too much. Too much thinking, you see, can upset it. And there’s the rub. Since everyone thinks most of the time, how can you figure out when it’s too much?
