Did a phone interview with Tony Daniel from Baen today. It will appear on this Friday's Baen podcast. Tony discussed the practice of collaboration with me and with Joelle Presby, David Weber's co-author on the forthcoming "The Road to Hell". We both have collaborated with major authors, and our most recent works were both produced from series where the previous co-authors were unable to continue the series; hers being the aforementioned "The Road to Hell", and mine being the forthcoming "The Span of Empire" in Eric Flint's Jao Empire series.
We had such a good time with it, that we may take that on the road as a convention panel. I can see it now: Walking with Giants–What It's Like to Collaborate with David Weber and Eric Flint.
