Prelude to Linear

Logo for the Golden State Baseball League

When I got the idea for writing Linear, I also was kind of referencing another story that I had an idea for, but it has nothing to do with Star Trek or fanfics.  It was a straight-up contemporary story about a semi-professional baseball league in the state of California.  If none of this interests you, …

Author’s Commentary: Milk Run

I’m going to start with Milk Run, because to me, this is the real beginning of the series.  Milk Run represents the first episode after the novella-length ‘pilot,’ Damn the Torpedoes! Parts I, II, and III.   It’s also the first episode where we get to know the entire crew and not just the Leone-loyal team of …

Last Night I Dreamt I Went to Manderley, Again…

The Chains of Error cover

Kudos to anyone who recognizes the famous first line of this blog post.  But last night before I reported in for work, Sam Redfeather and I had a chance to polish off the last bit of The Chains of Error and I wanted to write on my feelings about this endeavor.  Sam hasn’t had a …
