Author Spotlight: George Nikolopoulos


Which author is your biggest inspiration?

Over the years I’ve been inspired by many authors. In my early high school days my biggest inspiration was Anatole France, and, after I started reading SF, Ursula K. Le Guin. Later it was Douglas Adams, J.R.R. Tolkien, Roger Zelazny, among many others. Currently I’m hooked on George R.R. Martin.

What’s your favorite science fiction short story, book, movie?

That’s another very hard one. I’ll just try to pick one of each, otherwise I’ll have to write an essay. So, here goes: Sentry (by Fredric Brown), The Left Hand of Darkness (by Ursula K. LeGuin), Inception (by Christopher Nolan).

Story Bundle

It seems that I’m in a story bundle, too. No, really.

It’s the 2018 Military SF Storybundle, and I’m in because I’m in The Year’s Best Military & Adventure SF which is a part of the bundle.

As I’m really terrible in promoting anything, I’ll just direct you to Kevin J. Anderson’s blog post (KJA is actually the bundle’s curator) and the StoryBundle post. I’ll just note that a portion of the proceeds goes directly to help the Challenger Learning Center, and the bundle is just for three weeks — so hurry!
