Alephi is going to celebrate the December month as the month of Sci.Fi. writers. We ask one small question to the Sci.Fi. writers worldwide…
Joshua Viola is an author, artist, and former video game developer (Pirates of the Caribbean, Smurfs, TARGET: Terror). In addition to creating a transmedia franchise around The Bane of Yoto, honored with more than a dozen awards, he is the author of Blackstar, a tie-in novel based on the discography of Celldweller. His debut horror anthology, Nightmares Unhinged, was a Denver Post number one bestseller. His next anthology, Cyber World, co-edited by Jason Heller, will be available on Election Day, 2016. His short fiction has appeared in Found (RMFW Press), DOA III (Blood Bound Books) and The Literary Hatchet (PearTree Press). He lives in Denver, Colorado, where he is chief editor and owner of Hex Publishers.
Alephi : Which sci.fi. book do you like?
Joshua Viola : It’s hard to nail down just one, but the first that comes to mind is Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. I cut my teeth on that book. Nowadays I consume a lot of science fiction via “comics” such as “Drifter” and video games like Mass Effect. The genre is just so elastic.
