"One of the things I like about writing in this universe is that in a sense, this is the new "western." I used to love the classic westerns because they were about good guys and bad guys. For me, this is a kind of update -- better guns, of course -- but also because it's SF, there are places you can go, stories you can tell, things you can do that you could never do in a western, but that same basic frontier sensibility is there."
