Stoked that I got to have Steve Statham on to talk about gods in science fiction. Steve's a great guy and he writes a hell of a space opera.
Our conversation today was sparked because I read his book, Gods and the City. The topics we covered range from mythology to history to our obsession with gods in storytelling.
We also talk about the characters in Steve's book—every day people who are called upon to defend humanity—and how they rose to the challenge.
What a fun conversation. A few great book recommendations for you in there, too. Hope you enjoy it.
