Society is split apart into nodes, tucked into different corners of the world and connected by a common road. It is a land where chaos rules, but with the help of the ‘Champions,’ civilization is taking hold once again.
This world was conjured up by Pittsboro-based science fiction writer David Drake in his new book “The Spark” (Baen/ 2017).
Host Frank Stasio speaks with Drake about the futuristic Arthurian retelling.
Drake also talks about his time in the military; his experience working as an attorney in Chapel Hill; and how writing is his weapon in his continued fight against post-traumatic stress disorder.
