Damian Kindler: Without publicly kissing ass and blowing smoke, I've always liked the way Rob Cooper writes. He's got a great eye for plot, and for character, and detail. And Brad Wright writes really good sci-fi. He writes sci-fi where you're left kind of wondering about the fate of our lives. He writes dark, and I really admire that in him. He can go to the dark places. I mean, he wrote 'Unnatural Selection'. Wonderful. His 'Outer Limits' are just awesome. For such a sunny happy guy, he's got a very dark way of writing sometimes! But I love that. I'm very admiring.
