Marc Alan Edelheit - Intrigued by Military Sci-Fi and Fantasy

When Marc Alan Edelheit isn't plotting out a new military fantasy or sci-fi, he enjoys traveling the world or studying history. It is this passion for history that got him interested in military fantasy in the first place, as is very evident in his book, Stiger's Tigers. When he writes fantasy, Edelheit likes to keep things very realistic - even if it means sacrificing the likeability of some of his characters. In today's interview, Edelheit talks about the Romans, magic and why his heroes are not always the "good guys."
