Mirage: Speculating on Speculative Fiction #32 Sci-fi from the 70’s and 80’s w/ Brian Converse

Sci-fi from the 70’s and 80’s is the stuff I grew up on. Ice Pirates, Flash Jordan, Highlander, Star Wars. I love this stuff. So does Brian Converse. On this episode of Mirage, we talk about two decades of movies that inspired us both to tell our own sci-fi stories.

Brain is a former U.S. Army medic and current marketing professional living in Colorado with his wife, four kids, two cats and two dogs. He recently published his first novel “Stone Soldiers” a Rajani novel – first in a planned trilogy.
