Very intriguing conversation with author Gavin G Smith, author of several books, including most recently, Spec Ops Z, about zombies, Russian special forces, and an attack in New York. In addition to talking about his worldbuilding and writing process for Spec Ops Z, we also discussed properly respecting the military and owning that as a writer. Finally, the issue of Mutually Assured Destruction is discussed, in that it leads to everyone losing.
Gavin's handling of my military service, as well as the service of his characters, meant a lot to me and I highly recommend his book.
