So you can get started with your wonderful, genre-travel-filled New Year, Episode 15 is a little shorter than usual. This week, The Genre Traveler chats with biology teacher and science fiction author Lawrence Vincent about his book DNA3, the first in a series. During our 15-20 minutes together, we talk about genetic manipulation, invisible robots, alien races, making science fiction more plausible, alien-human mating and the works that inspired the series.
