Exclusive Interview: “Nomad” Author James Swallow

 

Among writer James Swallow’s many credits are books based on Star TrekDiscovery [Fear Itself] and Warhammer 40,000 [Sisters Of Battle: The Omnibus], audio dramas for Doctor Who and Stargate SG-1, and the scripts for such games as Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the Fallen Ghosts add-on for Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and next year’s The Division 2. But his newest war of words is actually not that new. Nomad (hardcover, Kindle) is an action thriller that was originally released in his native England two years ago, but is only now coming to the colonies.

In the following email interview, Swallow discusses this new old novel, as well as Mr. Dane’s other adventures, and whether we’ll be seeing him turn up in a certain upcoming game.

Exclusive Interview: The Spy’s Gamble Author Howard Kaplan

Four years ago, when I interviewed political espionage writer Howard Kaplan for the first time, it was because his first novel, The Damascus Cover, was being rereleased after forty years to coincide with the news that a movie version was in the works. A year later, when we spoke again, it was because his third novel, Bullets Of Palestine, was also being reissued. But in the following email interview about his new book, The Spy’s Gamble (paperback, Kindle), Kaplan explains that it’s not a new version of an old novel, but is instead a brand-new story he wrote in this current decade.

Exclusive Interview: Bullets Of Palestine Author Howard Kaplan

Just as most science fiction authors have never been to outer space, most writers of espionage novels have never done any spying. Well, except maybe on their older siblings. But that’s not the case with Howard Kaplan, who’s not only the author of the recently rereleased ’80s spy novel Bullets Of Palestine (paperback, digital), but he also, as he puts it, “smuggled manuscripts out of the Soviet Union.” With Bullets Of Palestine newly back in print, I spoke to Agent Kaplan about its plot, the upcoming movie of his previously rereleased spy novel The Damascus Cover, and what else he has planned for his “Jerusalem Spy” series.

Exclusive Interview: The Damascus Cover Author Howard Kaplan

Nearly forty years after it was first published, Howard Kaplan’s spy novel The Damascus Cover is making a comeback. Not only is a new edition coming to both bookshelves and eReaders, but a movie adaptation that stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Abigail Spenser, and Jurgen Prochnow is slated for next year. But in talking to Kaplan about both, it becomes clear that his tale of espionage hasn’t aged a day.
