We continue our series of interviews that we conducted from this year's New York Comic Con. This time around, Keith speaks with author Christopher L. Bennett. Bennett may be a familiar name to Star Trek fans, but he spoke with Keith about the release of his first non-Trek fiction, Almost Superhuman.

At the age of five and a half, I saw my first episode of Star Trek, believing it to be a show about a strange airplane that only flew at night. As I continued watching, I discovered what those points of light in the sky really were. This awakened a lifelong fascinationwith space, science and speculative fiction. I devoured Asimov, Clarke, and books on astronomy and physics. I often made up Trek-universe stories set a century ahead of Kirk's adventures (an idea years ahead of its time), but soon shifted to creating my own original universe. I eventually realized I did this pretty well, and deluded myself into thinking I could make a career out of it. So far, that delusion has been working out for me.
