Baltimore Comic-Con has always had a healthy prose showing in artists alley. There was the year I was introduced to Coral Hare. And, as I mentioned in my interview with Tom King (and he mentioned the same story at Saturday’s Ringo Awards), I first met him when he debuted A Once Crowded Sky at Baltimore Comic-Con. So I always like to check out what kinds of books are represented at Baltimore Comic-Con. Rod Van Blake was at the show with a book called Ancient Illumination that was a military science fiction and space opera. During our interview we discuss his qualifications for writing military fiction and some of the metaphors encoded in the races represented.

Eric was an avid comic reader in the late 1990s. He then took a hiatus from comic reading until 2011 when he dove head-first back into comics. Back in the 90s Eric only read Marvel comics although he loved Batman: The Animated Series. After a 2 year dalliance (2011-2013) with Marvel and DC, Eric now almost exclusively reads Image Comics.
