Melinda Snodgrass is the author of the Edge series, a contemporary fantasy that explores the tensions between science and rationality and religion and superstition. Also her new series The Imperials Saga is described as a Space Opera with a social conscience.
Melinda's television work includes script editor on Star Trek The Next Generation season 2 and 3
Her other TV credits include Profiler, LA Law, Beyond Reality, Reasonable Doubts, Seaquest 2032, Odyssey 5 and the 1990's version of The Outer Limits.
In the 1980s Melinda and collaborator George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) created the shared world anthology Wildcards which focuses on what the real impact of super heroes would be in our world.
We'll be asking her about the new Wildcards movie script for Universal pictures, how the Wildcards series began in the 1980s, her work on Star Trek and her current series of novels. Hopefully we will have time as well to ask her about her work in the oil and gas industry and how they frackked some test wells in the 1960s!
Always a fantastic convention guest and a wonderful speaker I'm looking forward to talking with
Melinda for the hour and I'm sure you will too! If you'd like to submit questions prior to the broadcast please do that on the facebook page for the interview here:

This Sunday's Jazz On The Air, hosted by Mr. Edison, will feature some of the remarkable women who have organized the Port Jefferson Documentary Series for the last 11 years. Films that you just can't find anywhere else, well before they're snatched up by distributors, and most of them with the film makers present for further insight. Remarkable stuff right in WUSB-FM's back yard. And yes, we will be giving tickets away.
