This week, we are absolutely thrilled to have Star Wars: Rogue One screenwriter Gary Whitta on the show. Yes, we talk about the film. Yes, he answers with something other than “no comment.” Are spoilers dropped or hinted at? You’ll have to listen and find out!


In addition to Star Wars, we also chat about Gary’s new novel Abomination, which is a “historical fantasy horror” story set during the reign of King Alfred the Great.

While England struggles to defend itself from hordes of Viking invaders, the Archbishop of Canterbury stumbles upon an ancient secret–a dark and mysterious magic that could turn the tide of the war in England’s favor. But when exposure to the magic corrupts the Archbishop, Alfred commands his greatest knight, Sir Wulfric, to hunt the mad priest down, unleashing horror that spans generations.

We also touch on the brilliant Nerd Court and his upcoming graphic novel reinterpretation of Oliver Twist (as a post-apocalyptic superhero) from Image Comics.

Settle in for another great episode, folks!
