Last weekend I went to a small sci-fi convention in Columbia, MO called DoDeca Con. While there I had the opportunity to chat with author John Jackson Miller. I talked with John about his new trilogy Star Trek: Prey, his Halo short story in Halo: Fractures, his comic in Halo: Tales From Slipspace, and his short story in Planet of the Apes: Tales From the Forbidden Zone. Below you can either listen to the interview on YouTube, or download it via Podbean.
