Unlike previous interviewee Richard White, author Peter Prellwitz does not have to worry about playing in an existing universe as he has created his own.
Peter has an extensive collection of paperbacks as well as audiobooks in the Shards Universe that he has created. Find out more in this interview which is part of “The Balticon Special That Never Ends.”
As a part of “The Balticon Special That Never Ends”, Erk chats with Richard White. Richard is a media tie-in writer. As you will hear in the interview, Richard writes books that ties in with pre-existing franchises including Star Trek, Stargate SG-1 and more.
This presents a new set of challenges for an author that does not happen when you are writing your own work. Not only does Richard need to get approval from the franchise he is writing about, he also has the fans of the series as his harshest critics.

Here is the winner of the Captain Obvious Award for 7 October. There’s no prize but when I read this sign, I thought “thank you, Captain Obvious!”
This sign is located on a door that opens outwards. Until recently, the sign read “Caution. Stand Clear Door Opens Outwards” which makes sense. However, someone has put an “Employees only” sticker over the bottom line of text so the sign says that the door opens. Well of course it opens!
