Travis Heermann posted an interesting interview with author James Kahn. For Star Wars fans, James Kahn is the author of the Return of the Jedi novelization. Yet in his 30 year career, he has covered a lot of ground, most of which the interview touches upon. From his brush with life as a mountain man, to his work with films, there’s a wide array of questions and answers that shed light on things I knew nothing about. My favorite reply was regarding E.T.

TH: What is the most memorable moment (good, bad, or other) you have had in your life as an artist?

JK: Probably when Kathleen Kennedy called the ER where I was working and asked if anybody there could help her figure out how to resuscitate an alien. Several of us went down to the set of E.T.[: the Extraterrestrial], wrote the med tech dialogue and donned hazmat suits in the E.T. death scene, which led to me getting the assignment to novelize Poltergeist. I’d call that first phone call a memorable moment.
