Interview with Pete Tzinski

Pete Tzinski, an editor at BBT Magazine, has begun a new project – God in the Machine. In order to promote his new online serial, we decided to do an informal interview to give readers more information…

Angela: So what is God in the Machine?

Pete: God in the Machine is a science fiction series. I’d trot out the old “in the tradition of…” line, except that if I tell you what the direct parents are of the series…it’ll give away plot details from later on. It’s the story of a robot named Loeb – and his apparent companion, a bigger robot named Max – who are caught in an electromagnetic storm which, instead of destroying them, brings them “awake.” They suddenly think and, more importantly, they feel. The problem is, to the rest of the galaxy of robots (and there are only robots left), this is nothing but damage to be repaired. To start with, it’s the story of them surviving.

The series is about quite a lot more than that, ultimately, but that’s its humble origin. That’s where we begin.

Susan Grant Interview

Science fiction romance is a small subgenre. Thankfully, I was introduced to Susan Grant’s work last year, and soon began buying up all of her books that I could find. Frequent visitors to this site know that this author has fast become a favorite of mine.

Susan was kind enough to consent to an interview in honor of her new release How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 Days, third in her Otherworldly Men series. I was able to read it early and posted the review here.

On with the interview…

Angela/SciFiChick: Tell us a little about How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 Days.

Susan Grant: It’s the third and final book in the rather light-hearted Otherworldly Men series concerning a California political family (think: Kennedys) and the alien invasion they must thwart. “ET,” however, takes a more serious turn due to some of the subject matter. Reef, the newly dismantled bio-engineered assassin from book 1 and 2 must finish his rehabilitation as a normal human in the home of a suburban single mom and her two children. I feel it stands alone well if you don’t mind a few pages to get caught up with a series book.

M.D. Benoit Interview

Besides having the privilege to preview M.D. Benoit’s new book Synergy and interview her today, it happens to be a very special day… Happy Birthday, M.D.! Hope you have a great one!

SciFiChick: Describe your upcoming book, Synergy.
Benoit: Here is what the book blurb says:
“Cloning. Accelerated growth of replacement organs. DNA repair. In 2096, all are possible. And forbidden by law. Three people will defy these laws to save the life of eleven-year-old Zelimir, who will die a slow, painful death from a horrifying genetic disease. Zelimir’s father hires Torver Lockwood and Demetria Greyson to find a cure for his son. Both have a personal stake in this illegal research. A cure may help explain why Torver is able to see into people’s pasts and why Demetria has visions about a violent future. But, once developed, the solution could be used as a powerful weapon that can target specific genes. With the chance that the cure may fall into the wrong hands and start a new reign of terror, will Torver keep the secret to himself, at the cost of one small life?”

BBT Interview

The editors at BBT Magazine were kind enough to offer a review copy of their magazine, as well as an interview with yours truly.

SciFiChick: Tell us a little about BBT.

BBT: BBT Magazine (or Blood, Blade, and Thruster Magazine to the neophyte) is a print magazine that blends speculative fiction & satire.
Think Realms of Fantasy meets The Onion.
Think Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine meets Mad Magazine.
Think Thomas Paine meets The Wolfman.

I’m not sure about that last one, I just like the way it sounded.

SciFiChick: Why speculative fiction and satire?
