Suvudu posted an interview with Shadow Games co-author Michael Reaves. The interview covers a range of questions including the origin of geeks, Michael’s television career and work with Dungeon & Dragons, Batman, his favorite comics, Megadeth, Steve Perry, and of course Star Wars. It’s a good sized interview that covers a lot of ground.

Black Sun plays a significant role in Shadow Games. They’re bad, bad guys, and I always found the idea that you could have this very “human” kind of evil alongside the spiritual evil of the Dark Side of the Force an interesting contrast. As a writer, how do you handle portraying these two kinds of evil?

To me they’re not all that different. I don’t believe in evil as an abstraction. As far as I’m concerned (and until I am told differently in a tone I can’t ignore), the Force is sui generis. It’s beyond the labeling of good and evil, because I’ve always felt that “The Devil made me do it” is a cop-out. There’s room for discussion about differences in scale (the “Living Force” vs. the “Cosmic Force”), but ultimately the Force is just the Force. -Michael Reaves
