An Interview With Tom Kratman, Part 2

Posted By Laughing_Wolf • [September 10, 2008]

This is the first in a series of interviews sponsored by Baen Books with some of today's top military science fiction writers.

Tom Kratman has had a very interesting life. He began reading at a very early age (listen to find out how young), enlisted in the Army, earned a college degree and went Mustang, became a lawyer, and was saved twice by Saddam Hussein. Along the way, he was not only Airborne, he also picked up some interesting things including a Combat Infantry Badge and a Ranger Tab.

Today, he writes such books as A Desert Called Peace, A State of Disobedience, Carnifex, Caliphate, Yellow Eyes, and Watch on the Rhine.

Today's interview discusses how he got started writing and gets into details (and some potential spoilers) about his universe(s) and the background for them.

Stay tuned for Part 3 of the interview. Part 1 can be found here, and the introduction to the series here.
