"Dan damon knight used to do this. There was a book that i think john campbell had retitled the ricky and terror that originally had a title like you know A happy story about space or something and and every time someone would britain damon a copy of the book he would he would open it to the saddle page and cross out campbell's title and right in his own would you talked about the In this particular case having an editor as you were before it went to the editor you had an editor once. It gets to the publication level with the publisher's editor. What kind of feedback do you typically get. So might my patrick. Who i've known since i was seventeen. He is He tends to be pretty macro. He usually will have one or two things where he's like. This thing really needs fix but mostly he. You know the way that he approaches that i think is that science fiction is a story in which you have a kind of micro and macrocosm microcosm is the character in the macrocosm is the world. They need to be parallel to one another. They need to have. They need to be sort of as above so below powers of ten kind of relationship to one another and if the character the characters like a little cog wheel that spins around and around interfacing with very big wheel that is the world and the character spins and spins and spins and tell. The world makes a full revolution. And you see it in the round and a lot of the times when the books falter. It's because they at the teeth aren't meshing because there's some way in which the world and the character are not matched for each other so a lot of the times. His suggestions will be sort of thematic. You'll be like if you do this with the character or and or this the world you'll get much better mesh. Does he work with like an editorial letter that you get or is it a conversation. Oftentimes this conversation but We we notionally well. I mean what actually usually happens. S he says. I will get you in a letter and time will go by. And he'll go like actually. Let's just talk on the phone. That's what i'm used to sheila. Gobert ause my editor and it's always phone conversations so when people talk about getting these massive editorial letters. I've never actually had one of those. So i was wondering what they're like well. Juliet juliet gave me a proper editorial letter. But that was a that was a separate process. Now i also wanted to mention. You're doing something interesting with a kickstarter for the audiobook version of this. So that has funded. It'll be over so you. Can't you know people hearing this can't contribute. But tell me about that and how that came about and why you did it..

"Attack. The OWL ship dog-legs around a darkened office building. A missile blows a hole in its facade. Aerial shot on our ship firing two missiles afterward at the pursuing craft interior owl ship that moment. Driebergen exhilerated. Laurie worried checking the rate. Read out Mr Dan Damon High. I don't want to take him out. Just WanNa keep them interested. They're practically honest. That Detroit Shit. I'm so worried. He punches a button on the Dash. It's labeled turbo likes it now? Kicking in turn bow drive for it on house. Third Fan aerial shot on airship the turbo-jets kick in the AL ship. Accelerates tough four hundred miles per hour after the dust? The chimp is is an actually Zeppelin. The integrates into pieces but they were just at a dog fight. Where's he going? He's leaving. He's being interested. Now there's twenty five feet away from the people they were murdering. We can safely assume that they'll just follow us for however long like there pep. Bela pugh just they. They're not in a hurry. They're just GONNA cruise behind us as six miles an hour as we zoom off into the horizon like I need to drag them away from the site and keep interested in their closing in on his day. And he's like well ain't no pussy several. They catching me got there. It's like you're forgetting the reason that you were coming out here. Running away is my middle name. They'll never catch us. The point was to catch exterior Holland. Tunnel night a line of traffic. Enters the tunnel the owl ship swoops suddenly and just clearing the arch enters above them. A moment later the lead ship tries to follow bad move. How how these are basically blimps trying to the obvious? He couldn't go. Four hundred miles per hour is. How is it anywhere near them? It can't be but less maneuverable craft rams into the lip of the arch and explodes. Oh you're the second ship hurdles toward a similar fate but at the last moment retro jets blasting at full force it manages the stop itself it backs up slightly edges up over the tunnel and settles for the Airborne Route Interior Holland. Tunnel a moment later. The OWL ship zooms through the tunnel mere feet above the tops of the cars horns. Honk brakes screech. There's an oversized truck directly in. Its path the OWL ship nudges up slightly and clears the truck by inches throwing off sparks against the roof of the tunnel. Interior Owl ship that moment. The end of the tunnel is coming up fast. Fog Blowers on activate radar shields exterior. He's he's threading fucking tunnel at four hundred miles per hour. That'll get his dick hard. Your margin of error is so low also also I think part of him is like God damn it. I'm going to ram some fucking tunnel. Oh I need to go in reverse not feel like whoever wrote. This just wrote a number. He's at four hundred is pretty bucket bass just GonNa put that day not really know it. Bad for two miles per hour is yeah seems right faster than my car. That actually reminds me I Worked at a film festival years back and we had Patrick Stewart as a guest and he did he did a little talking with the audience and someone asked him some Star Trek question. Of course because fucking nerds and he goes. I've never had much interest in sci-fi and I couldn't even tell you what I was saying most of the time I don't even know what warp speed is. I know you can't do it on the highway. Gene Roddenberry wrote that line for him and he's just been holding onto since then he's like. I'm just going to say this for the next until I die. Engage I've been holding onto this line. Saving it savouring. It's just for the Sarasota film fest. Thespians understand right. That's cool though like I love Patrick Stewart man peace. Who's the greatest I would? I would love to. Just meet him and Milton Everything. But Star Trek and it was like why are you? Ask Them? Pretend you didn't know from Star Trek Star Trek Patrick Stewart from the Green Room. So I actually did that. To William H macy at that same film festival. I was talking to them and all these people kept coming up and like saying how much they loved his latest movie. Whatever and after like the Fifth Person Walked Away. You know saying how great that one movie was. I was like you'll man. You were great in enter the Dragon. Bomb in Phantoms. Yo you're the best cuck in boogie nights that I've ever did. You really kill yourself in that movie. Also how are your kids doing in school by the way That's real topical. Um I don't know where we are. We're in right at the top of the page. The owl ship emerges from the tunnel and not his upward an almost vertical angle spewing dense clouds of billowing fog and its wake a few seconds later the lone remaining seats ship arrives but seeing only fog and no trace of the OWL ship. It pushes forward on a horizontal course and disappears into the darkness beyond for Water Interior. I will ship a moment later night. There in the middle of a cloud bank dream burgers wearing a look of intense satisfaction as Laurie. Nervously checks the radar.

Everybody's GonNa pick in barring any trades trades and this one's from Ryan Wilson. I go from PRISCO to surpass. Oh to Wilson and sometimes my Cassisa but Joe Borough is going to be a Bengal. There's there's no there's no part of that that's not going to happen now. Things may have gone a little awkward during Super Bowl. Week Carson Palmer told. CBS radios. Dan Dan Damon Amend Lara. I always want to say Danny Amendola. When I see his name but Damon Amend Alario that he had to leave the bengals because he said I never felt they were committed to winning a super bowl? And by the way Carson's brother Jordan is training borough. But he'll be the number one overall selection outside of something just ridiculous. Chase young would've been banal sort of like Bosa last year. The Ohio State Defensive End Number one overall knowing collar Murray. Okay Chase young or both at now. It's going to be chased young unless they're blown away for trade offer. He's the guy. Hi Jeff Okuda third overall out of Ohio state the corner to the Lions. That's going to be tough for a corner to go third overall. But maybe maybe they'll fall in love with him in the underwear Olympics geriatric wills junior the tackle from Alabama fourth overall to block for Daniel Jones in New York. Five to tag of Aloha made the rounds during radio row insistent that he'd be ready in late. March turley April Justin. Herbert had a great senior ball even if he wasn't fantastic at Oregon this year and Philip rivers has basically played his last game for the chargers. Unofficially he's moved. Everybody says it and so maybe Justin Herbert at six Garrick Brown defensive. It's of tackle from Auburn to Carolina. Defensive Lineman y while McCoy is headed to free agency and Vernon butlers. LERS option didn't get picked up. They have to figure out what they're doing. A quarterback Mekki Beckon Mekki Becton the Lyman from Louisville eighth overall for all to block for Collar Murray six seven three hundred sixty pounds a mountain of a man kind of Trent Brown situation. Pick nine Andrew Thomas another tackle from Georgia to protect foles or MINHSIU. I don't see that one being the woman who knows Pay Ten the team with no logo. The browns tristen wharfs another tackle all out of Iowa so top ten picks how many offensive lineman one two three four. It can happen eleven. Isaiah Simmons Linebacker at Clemson at the jets. Jerry Judy then would fall to the raiders twelve. I would love that CD lamb to the colts and other great receiver. And then there's Jordan love to the bucks at fourteen. I think the raiders would be very tempted to take Jordan love. But there's rumors that they're trying to get Brady. That's an old rumor. Oh by the way. It's just that when Adam schefter says it gets new steam Cristian Roldan cornerback from LSU donkeys at fifteen k.. savion chase on the linebacker from Lsu to Atlanta Xavier mckinney Alabama safety to Dallas Terrell Lewis Edge rusher from Alabama to Miami. They have another picket eighteen. And then Patrick Queen the linebacker at LSU is a little undersize their size. I think but definitely a guy we know. And then rounding out the last ten picks. Justin Madame Week.. Defensive Pencil Linemen Jacksonville CD A CJ Henderson. Cornerback from Florida Philly viscous junior. Why does he wrote a Colorado Buffalo? Hello Henry rugs the third guy who might be the fastest guy. The combine New England gets him at twenty three. I know twenty three first round. Ah Number One. Overall for them at a Bama Jalen Rieger the wider sphere from TCU TO NEW ORLEANS. I don't think they draft receiver come on Jacob E send the quarterback from Washington first round pick to Minnesota very interesting Josh Jones Offensive Lineman From Houston listen to Miami. They have three first round picks richer. Gross Mattis from Penn State the defensive end to Seattle Kenneth Murray Oklahoma Linebacker acker to Baltimore. Trayvon Digs Alabama corner to Tennessee t higgins wide receiver fantastic player out of Clemson into the packers in the last two picks Hunter Bryant tight end from Washington to San Francisco. I don't think they go tight end to tell. Hey the truth. I don't know where that's coming from. And then the final pick. Aj Terrell the corner from Clemson to Kansas City. It's a mock we know where everybody's nobody's picking and now you can get on the horn and start making them. Trades armored tillable. Seen a second.

"Welcome to newshour I'm Dan Damon welcome to the new year and later in our program we'll be looking at new year's resolutions and specifically the desire to reach out to someone from whom we've grown apart I did it a couple of days ago I reached out to a family member that we've become slightly estranged and just called and said look I love you when my family I love you you have to reconnect because you want to be able to look at yourself in the mirror and say I've I've reached out and I've said my peace and if you don't wish to communicate and find but I have tried we'll discuss reconciliation later here on news our first the number of deaths in what's shaping up to be Australia's worst fire season in living memory has risen to nearly twenty and bush fires continue to rage across wide areas of southeast Australia emergency workers are assessing the damage while still battling to rescue those cut off by the flames as they reach remote areas more bodies are found of people trapped in cars or outside the homes they were trying to defend more than a hundred fires are still burning in New South Wales alone the state's rural fire service commission ashamed Fitzsimmons said there is no end in sight for the very difficult conditions that we also have a very real challenge at the moment with a couple of isolated communities well we've got reports of of injuries and burn injuries to members of the public we haven't been out to get access via rides Ole Ole far aircraft it's been sucked in to diners and we simply con access nor can the people in these areas get out well I've been speaking to our correspondent Phil Mercer who's in Sydney Phil told me about the military operation that's now underway but in many ways this feels like a country on a war footing the military is being deployed there was a request from the state governments in Victoria for the Australian millet trade to be involved in a few hours ago we store and navy supply ship leave it space here in Sydney to sail down the coast to those affected areas in the southern parts of New South Wales and also off the coastline of Victoria as well these fires have been devastating and deadly more bodies have been discovered send the authorities really need that extra help that extra heft the the minute treat will bring not simply that navy ship but also army helicopters being deployed as well what can you tell us about those who was stranded actually on the beach in the town of Samarra kuta they were sheltering on the beach when the fires were and circling the danger for now has cost but the problem is the roads are still closed it's still too dangerous to re open those roads there aren't too many of them in an ounce of the small coastal places so there are several thousand holiday makers and residents trying the best they can to get by we know that three police boats today have delivered food water and medical supplies it could be a few days before those roads are open and also there a bushland communities that a man is by far as they do to a console and relying on dwindling supplies as well and these are horrifying and tragic stories of people being found dead in that because with the bin tramp tool trying to defend their homes we will never know who Walt fate befell them in terms of the moments leading up to how they died and so the circumstances in which they died but one would imagine that in the fullness of time when Australia a can catch its breath and reassess how which approach is the source of natural disasters will people being courage to will people be allowed to stay and defend their properties at the moment it's left up to them and said that will be part you have to say of a wholesale re examination of the way Australia deals with the SEC huge bush fires that have gone on for weeks and are likely to continue for weeks to come as well well how long could that go on Australia is a big place there is still plenty of fuel on the ground as the authorities say much of the the Australian bush is made up of eucalyptus trees and they have flammable oils and that's why these bush files they don't suddenly fast moving they are extremely noisy that is in large part because of these eucalyptus trees often simply just exploding so we are now into what I traditionally the warm months of the year in Australia so what you have a long standing drowned his continuing on Saturday for example we're expecting more hot dry and windy conditions and that will conspire to elevate the fire danger and these dangerous days could go on for weeks or even months and said the fire authorities say the only way to extinguish some of these major places is flooding rain and that sent me notes on the radar for some considerable time Phil Mercer in Sydney Innisfil said in the state of Victoria some communities in active fire zones have been out of contact for in some cases days supplies were reportedly dwindling in Malibu to residents of sorts refuge on the beach as the files closed in I spoke to Mars kasha a resident of Malibu to all the boats the ministry boats getting through I yes we have seen about it just off the shores of

"Dan Damon in London the Chinese man who use gene editing techniques and what he said was an attempt to replicate in twin girls a gene that immunize as people against HIV has been sentenced to three years in jail hoon Chun who was seeking fame and wealth according to the judgment against him and he didn't have the right qualifications to carry out the research it appears that his efforts failed to reproduce the correct gene even if he had of course the implications on the side effects are unknown and therefore the procedure was unethical as well as being illegal I spoke to doctor Katie Snape consultant cancer genesis is that some of George's university hospital here in London I also was that clearly a lack of ethics in what he did I think that's absolutely right so I think that the whole international community when this research was faster nonstop cheese came out and said that that this was an ethical and the technology is not yet and fit for the purpose for which it was east and is a very big difference between doing some scientific experiments in the fall retreat compacts to doing this type of experiment in NBA is which I'm going to create human beings and potentially at that children to calm said I think that the consensus was that this was not an ethical thing today the principle is that there are certain genes which are present in disease at and they can be in effect edited out whole blocks is that right yeah absolutely say that Chris Paul technique is a phenomenally impressive technique that is probably going to revolutionize many strands of science and medicine and what it does is it basically guides when it's been described as some of the molecular ceases down to specific places in the genetic can say that you could cut how overactive jeans will replace defective genes to potentially that that would be hope that this could correct genetic illnesses but we already have a number of other ways of preventing since they're devastating genetic conditions were being passed on through generations such as forms of ID ask where we can screen embryos contain genetic problems and this type of technology is not yet ready save once you wanted to target a very specific section of genetic codes the genetic code is three billion letters long and that isn't actually a way that we can confirm that they wouldn't be extra attitude to places outside of the specific price you want to time target city off target effects on a nine and could potentially lead to home from consequences do we know what's happened to noon and nana these twenty they are normally slicing that's complete rightly said that the potential for a home to come to them and it's not their fault that this happened I'm I'm part of the problem is that there is not a way that we could supports and and help scrutinize this type of experiment because it has been done outside regulate tree boundaries say if gene editing in number there is where ever come into our tuner and mainstream medical use and I think that would need to be a large amount of the express the code debate that it would need to be very highly regulated I'm don say that we did for children in the same way that we we would follow up children he was seen by as in the genetics clinic so I think that is with the problematic we should avoid the impression should me that this was a Chinese scientist working in some secret Lombard street he had been supervised by an American University I mean what's been learned about the way this kind kind of research should be monitored I think that's absolutely right and I think in a way a case like this raises very large issues that we have scientific tools which could be taken and leans outside of normal regulation I mean that Chris logs being used in hundreds to thousands of the board she's across the world's to great effect and for the benefit of science and I'm cemex and so what we don't want to do is is preventable experimentation using what is potentially very powerful and helpful tool but I think it raises significant questions about particularly when when you're going to do something and embrace which could be passed down three generations and lead to the creation of living and children about how we regulate that scientific endeavor doctor Katie Snape from Georges St George's university hospital here in London.

"Service it comes to life from our studios in central London we begin today once again with the political reverberations of the decision taken on Wednesday by the British prime minister to also the queen to suspend parliament to request that was granted it's a decision that sick knighted a furious constitutional debates in Westminster and is dominating news coverage here in the U. K. and beyond I keys Asians that the government is trying to muzzled debate on brexit and thwart attempts to stop the country leaving the E. U. all dismissed by the government but they have today been two resignations both figures inside the conservative policy one in direct response to the suspension of parliament the other flag this personal but being interpreted otherwise more on that later in the program there are now two legal challenges to the suspension of parliament opponents of the government as well as some inside the conservative policy a questioning the motives of the prime minister and all eyes will be on efforts made by those against leaving the E. U. without a deal coming together next week when parliament sits on September the third to initiate legislation to stop that from happening let's begin with the leader of the house of Commons Jacob Jacob Rees Mogg who is an outspoken breaks a tear and comfortable with the U. K. leaving the E. U. without to deal he's been speaking to my colleague Dan Damon and told him white retaining no deal as part of the U. K. negotiating strategy is so important central part of the strategy Vic calls you paint yes a good deal if you say that you will accept any deal that is a basic principle of an indication ation is why the current withdrawal agreement is say unsatisfactory the century makes the U. K. of also of the opinion union or his son mist of a horse that said a colony of the European Union so you have to get back to the deal and say if we don't have a proper withdrawal agreement we are happy to leave regardless because that's what people to that very fitful what I as you know the question of whether people voted for no dealer not is contentious your rights and other so right for that those who was saying what's been done now is a constitutional out rage would have difficulty point into any particular paragraph will close in Britain's constitution which says that because it's not written down but that constitution does rely on trust to doesn't it and bearing in mind that the majority it seems of your colleagues in parliament don't want no deal than that trust has been lost by this suspension of parliament forgive me for being pedantic but the British constitution is on defined roles and on risk so you called pointed in one place all the president's all every single one is that this proposal have a new queen speech was in line with the spirit in the practice of the constitution of the tubes the normal operation of the constitution the only abnormality is that the session opponents as being so long the outrage is to my mind completely phony and it's from people they want to leave your opinion that may be true but it did the idea of leaving the European Union is contentious no question about that it's unprecedented and so to in effect shut down parliament so that account to bait that does break the position of trust the government needs trusted not cut it isn't being shot down about four five days of parliamentary business will be lost because problems can be in recess anyway so it's no it's this great loss of parliamentary time and that the average fan is important actually because the people who are so cross of the moment of the ones who lost of age and sexually democracy requires people who lose face to accept that they have lost the vote and get home with the new situation we are leaving your opinion and not because I want to because Boris Johnson wants to book a seventeen point four million people they should that we should and that was a comfortable majority and that was the leader of the house of Commons Jacob Rees Mogg speaking to done Damon well that speak to Jenny Chapman she is the shadow brexit minister for the main opposition labor policy and among those determined to prevent the U. K. leaving without today welcome to the program I'm all you among those people who all cross as Jacob Rees Mogg has just outlined because you lost that twenty sixteen referendum no I'm not cross because this fact and I was disappointed at that point the doctor today so to to check out our school fifty and start negotiation and I thought that that was my responsibility as a member of parliament who did respect the sites not everybody did that I did the difficulty now of course is six the rhetorically meant that was negotiated by to reason may be rejected amber is deeply unpopular across the country in any case it looks unlikely that I was to be another the grievance alleges active still OPC of possibility even at this late stage but it would seem from their rhetoric from Boris Johnson and the decisions that he may become prime minister that he is willing to countenance is not his plan a that that set me he's going to count since leaving without city on body some things that I'm deeply opposed to us so many of my colleagues what can you do to stop that from happening what specific things are you putting in place now that when parliament meets again on Tuesday that you will be able to initiate options that we have some friends to this one as a one option would be to take some sort of legislative process forward which means we could use at that in order to stop the government taking sides about to DO at least without consent and then we see we have as opposed to the no confidence option which would probably lead to a general election which you think you are going to go full because it's a very short amount of time from there when parliament re sits on September the second the third and September the tenth which is when parliament will be suspended well it's very important that whatever happens is done collaborative medium with as wide as the course as possible parliament's cross talkies you have not simple I think we do as I'm confident that we do I know that we take but exactly which mechanism is he said how about that I think it's something that needs to be thrust outside the coming days everything changed yesterday the position we thought we would be confronted in fundamentally old sick yesterday with the decision to provide parliament and discussions needs a ticket for thou in much of what was announced yesterday by the government so you're saying that you have enough support as the main opposition policy with people inside the conservative policy to take control of the time table inside parliament next week that might be what happens I think we haven't won say if we have enough support she said no deal how about Stan and exactly which mechanism we use needs to be decided upon collaborative late cross and status parties in parliament and that that's not been far as I'm aware that greed is yet exactly what will but look what will be used that says the desire is that the will is that the ability is that and to be able to prevent the sleeping with ausa tail end will use every tool in the box to make sure that that happens because this isn't we don't we yes it's very concerned about the constitution internal affairs she recalls yeah the bold and not be concerned about the impact of this would have on communities and on industry and the employment to talk constituent countries they TV is a precedent in terms of passing a law very quickly it happened back in April and it was done in three days why you're not going for the nuclear option and initiating a vote of no confidence in Boris Johnson well I haven't said that that was and it's just it up but the point I'm trying to make is that it's no good the labor party all the members of a policy and declaring war I think you ought to date without having the the opportunity in the space that we have between now and when parliament returns next week to do that Klay on some things everybody can support could it needs to have a door to face is supported by the old south we're aiming to achieve I mean if if that if if we do get to a point where there is an agreement on the exactly what is going to happen is that the technicalities about that that would be letting people night that everything changed yesterday evening you do need to bear with us just give give give Christianity the agreement thanks for talking to Jenny Chapman shadow brexit minister
