Cover to Cover #74: Kevin J. Anderson / Nick Pollotta

Kevin J. Anderson.
Kevin is without a doubt one of the hardest working authors in science fiction and fantasy. This guy just won't quit! His latest effort is A Forest of Stars, part of the Saga of Seven Suns.

Dovetailing nicely from the previous week's show, Kevin also writes in the Dune universe with Brian Herbert. Think that's enough? Not for Kevin. He also writes many books in the Star Wars and X-Files arena. He's also penned a few comic books and even did the novelization of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Whew!

Nick Pollotta
Want a bit of humor tossed in with your fantasy/sci-fi? Nick is the man for you. We were excited to have him on the air, as humor is so often overlooked in this genre. He has two new works out right now, and the first is Tequilla Mockingbird, a collection of short stories. Next out is That Darn Squid God, a story of exploration and global catastrophe set in the late 1800's.

If you're looking for Nick's work, you might want to look under a few names, like Don Pendelton and James Axler. With the three names, he's written over 30 books in all. His two latest books are due out in stores soon, so keep an eye out for them!
