Welcome to the fifth episode of the Reading and Writing Podcast featuring an interview with Taylor Anderson, author of Into the Storm: Destroyermen, Book I, Crusade: Destroyermen, Book II, and Maelstrom: Destroyermen, Book III. You can download the podcast here or subscribe via iTunes.
“With its blending of historical fact, thrilling battle scenes, and science fiction, Maelstrom is a novel that anyone who loves reading both military and alternative history SF books will want to add to their libraries. The characters are complex, three-dimensional, and show growth over the course of the series, and Anderson, who is a gunmaker and forensic ballistic archaeologist and a member of the National Historical Honor Society and the United States Field Artillery Association, has done his research, and it shows.”
