Every now and then, writing gets “sidetracked by life.”

Just ask John Stith.

After a productive stretch of writing mystery-tinged science fiction novels in the 1980’s and 1980’s, life got in the way.

So writing took an understandable hiatus. But now, John Stith is back and looking forward to the publication, later this year, of his first full-fledged mystery, a novel called Pushback.

John E. Stith is the author of eight novels, including Redshift Rendezvous, a Nebula Award nominee, and Manhattan Transfer, a Hugo Award Honorable Mention. Several of his works with Ace Books and Tor Books have been bought by the Science Fiction Book Club, optioned for film, and translated into numerous languages. He has optioned several feature-film screenplays, and has sold to television (Star Trek).

As you’ll here on the interview, the hiatus wasn’t completely wasted. John kept thinking about writing and he read novels more critically – all with the purpose of getting better at his craft so he was ready once it was time to write again.
