Exclusive Interview: “The Runes Of Engagement” Authors Tobias S. Buckell & Dave Klecha


We’ve all had “you got chocolate in my peanut butter” thoughts, where you wonder what would happen if two seemingly disparate things came together. Like if Prince jammed with Black Sabbath. Or if someone made tacos with falafel.

Or, in the case of The Runes Of Engagement (paperback, Kindle), the new military sci-fi / fantasy novel by Tobias S. Buckell and Dave Klecha, what if marines went to Middle-earth.

In the following email interview, Buckell and Klecha discuss how this mash-up came together, and why they took is so seriously…and not seriously.
