Welcome to Episode 171 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we chat with author Michael J. Martinez about works past, present, and future. During our discussion we talk about Mike’s Daedalus Trilogy and Majestic-12 series, his love of history in both real and alternate forms, and the ways in which his long career in journalism has influenced his writing…and how he’ll happily buy everyone a beer if he’s allowed to write in the Star Wars universe.
