Exclusive Interview: Starship Alchemon Author Christopher Hinz


On occasion, a writer will go back and make small revisions to one of their older novels when they’re being reissued. But most of those times, the stories aren’t radically different. No so for Christopher Hinz’s 1988 out-of-print debut novel Anachronisms, which is getting a very different new life as the sci-fi space opera thriller Starship Alchemon (paperback, Kindle). In the following email interview, Hinz discusses how this top-to-bottom rewrite happened, and why, as well as some quick questions about his recently released novella Duchamp Versus Einstein, which he cowrote with Etan Ilfeld.
