Gweekly News Desk #8 with Daniel Haight – Flotilla Series
Today we interview our guest host Daniel Haight (like the opposite of love) the sci-fi author of many short stories and more notably the dystopian novel series Flotilla. Dan was an amazing guest host and with his background in radio he ends up stealing the show in the best way possible. We talk about his book writing career, the folly of modern popular sci-fi, the troubles creative individuals face when trying to get their work out there, the fact that Californians apparently don’t have basements (weird right?), and much more. Oh! We get to the news too.
We want to thank Dan again for taking time to be on our podcast and we will welcome him back anytime.

His books are available on Amazon: Flotilla and Iron Mountain
He also came up with a program where he’d give away a copy of his book every time someone on Reddit bought a copy of the book. For every copy of Iron Mountain you buy, he will commit to giving away a copy to abuse survivors on Reddit. If you buy a Kindle copy, if you buy a hard copy, he’ll donate a copy to an abuse survivor in your name.

Here is the trailer for his book series:
