In an interview with io9, Young Wizards series author Diane Duane talks about her latest book, learning to build video games, and explains her love of science.
An entire generation of speculative fiction fans know for her Young Wizards books, a long-running fantasy series firmly grounded in scientific reality. She's also one of the more highly regarded Star Trek novelists of all time. But her latest is a bit different, a near-future SF thriller about the cutthroat video-game business. Her hero is Dev Logan, the Jobs-like CEO of multi-billion-dollar gaming goliath Omnitopia. His life is pretty sweet: His employees adore him, his MMORPG is the Facebook of the 2010s, and his baby daughter is adorable.
