An Interview with Campbell & Moon

This is a short (17 min) interview with Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon. I have listened to Campbell Lost Fleet series and am now listening to JAG in Space and have enjoyed them. So I was interested in hearing more about him and his writing. I had never heard of Elizabeth Moon is was intrigued by her. Apparently she was in the U.S. Marines and writes fantasy as well as military Sci Fi. She discuss the various series she writes I was interested in Vatta's War a military Sci Fi and will see if Audible has it. I did not learn a great deal about them as the interview was too short but they did discuss about how they go about writing and how the characters changed from their original ideas. This is worth the listen and it is free.

Not Very Informative

What did you like best about Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon: A Conversation? What did you like least?

It felt like an ad for the new books, not like a true discussion of their art.


Was Jack Campbell and Elizabeth Moon: A Conversation worth the listening time?

It's free and it's 15 minutes or so. Why not?


Any additional comments?

This is rather dated now - having been recorded around the Dreadnought release and the return to the Pax universe for Moon. Felt like two strangers thrown in a room trying desperately to say something interesting to get your to buy their newest book and yet be courteous to the other.
