Jon Frater joins me this week to talk about his love of science fiction, writing games, writing in someone else’s universe vs. creating his own, the importance of librarians and physical books, and much more.
A gaming industry stalwart dating back to the 1980s, Jonathan Frater is the co-author of roleplaying game books Robotech: Return of the Masters, and Robotech Adventures: Lancer’s Rockers, both for Palladium Books. Jonathan also wrote a column on writing and game design called The Tome in Gateways magazine. He’s currently a librarian at Metropolitan College of New York. Article 9, the first in his ambitious Blockade Trilogy, is Jonathan’s first full-length novel.
*** We had a little bit of a numbering snafu last week so while this episode is technically 158, we skipped 157 last week so this one takes that place in the numbering scheme. ***
