02-01-08: interviews author CJ Henderson, contributor to the upcoming military science fiction anthology "Warfear".

MilSciFi: "Welcome. What was your inspiration for your story?

Henderson: "I actually have five stories in "Warfear." Now, my inspiration for "Glowworm" was easy. I wrote that one with Bruce Gehweiler, and his draft was the first one. As for "The Best Meal," that's a horrors of war story, one meant to show you don't need the supernatural to have horror in war. In "The Laughing Man," I have always wanted to do a hero-holds-the-bridge tale. And, I've also always wanted to do a Twilight Zone story, so "999 Down" was my answer to that. Lastly, "The Hardest Courage," also done with Bruce, was inspired by my desire to do a gurrillea war story."

MilSciFi: "Do you have any future plans for stories set in the same universe?

Henderson: "A sequel to "The Laughing Man" was written for Inhuman magazine; I can't want to see that story with an AllenK illustration. "The Best Meal" is one of my Jack Hagee stories, and I have about 30 of those. "The Hardest Courage" is part of Bruce's and my Byanntia series. In fact, anyone who'd like to see some other tales in that universe can find four of them at Free reads, gang!"

MilSciFi: "How would you describe your experience working on the book?"

Henderson: "Not much of an answer, sorry to say. I love turning out stories, and when an editor tells me he'll take more than one, I just keep writing!"

MilSciFi: "What are you working on next?"

Henderson: "Right now I'm working on the first book in a series for Tor. It's called Brooklyn Knights, and it stars Professor Piers Knight, a director of the Brooklyn Museum. He's pretty different from any of my other characters. For one, he's not a hero. I don't mean that he's Mr. Evil Guy, he's simply a working stiff who works in a place that's filled with magical artifacts and ... well ... you know ... stuff keeps happening."

MilSciFi: "Give us the details on your upcoming author appearances."
