Personal Quotes

One day on my way to class I ran into my brother Dan walking through the hall. I asked him what he was doing there, noticing he had some text books under his arm. He told me he was on his way to class and wanted to know what I was doing there. Somehow we were both enrolled in the same school, without the other knowing. Okay, we didn’t hang out together all the time, he was four years older (still is), but we lived together! It was weird! Right? That is weird, isn’t it?

Mike Dupod

Mike Dopud is a man with presence. As an actor, his screen presence has a far different kind of impact than the kind he used to deliver as a professional athlete — Both are hard-hitting and memorable.

Dopud was born in Montreal, Canada, the second son of a Yugoslavian family. Mike speaks three languages fluently (English, French, and Serbian). Graduating with a degree in Physiology and International Business Administration from Southern Illinois University where he was a four-year letterman, Dopud went on to a pro-football career in the Canadian Football League that was cut short by a knee injury. After rehabilitating his knee, he found himself back on skates playing pro hockey in the Minor Leagues. Plagued by injury, his sports career ended abruptly.

It wasn’t long after Dopud had his first taste of the film industry on the hit television series The X-Files (1993). “I was hooked.” Dopud’s talent, rugged good looks, and screen presence has also caught the attention of casting directors. His forty acting credits over the last few years has made this working actor someone to watch for and someone who is hard to miss. In the soon-to-be released In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale(2007), Dopud plays General Backler. Some of Dopud’s other recent film credits include 300 (2006), White Noise (2005), BloodRayne (2005), Rollerball (2002), I Spy (2002), X-Men 2 (2003), I, Robot (2004), and Canada Russia ’72 (2006). Dopud has had recurring roles on such shows as Smallville (2001), Battlestar Galactica (2004), Jeff Ltd. (2005), Stargate SG-1 (1997), and Millennium (1996). This fall, Mike can be seen on MTV playing the role of Don Harris on the new series Kaya (2007).

His size and professional sports background landed Dopud regular stunt work while he steadily began building his acting resume. His “day at the office” in stunt work has included being set on fire, hit by a car, falling off buildings thrown through windows and down stairs, flying through walls, and more fight scenes than Mike Tyson has fought professional bouts. He’s duked it out with Dwayne Johnson (Walking Tall (2004)), Jason Statham (Chaos (2005)), Vin Diesel (The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)), Jessica Alba(Dark Angel), Lucy Liu (Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever (2002)), Jean-Claude Van Damme(Replicant (2001)), and the Charlestown Chiefs in the sequel to the cult classic One More Minute (1979): Slap Shot 2: Breaking the Ice (2002). Most recently Dopud has been nominated for a 2005 Taurus World Stunt Awards for Best High Work in the movie Walking Tall (2004).

Dopud is also excited that he has returned to the stage most recently in the original plays: Rockets Red Glare and Of Diners and Buses. And Two Small Bodies. Gingham Dog.

Michael Jan Friedman

Michael Jan Friedman  is a New York City born American author of nearly sixty books of fiction and nonfiction, more than half of which are in licensed tie-in products of the Star Trek franchise. Ten of his titles have appeared on the New York Times Best Seller list. Friedman has also written for network and cable television, radio, more than 150 comic books, most of them for DC Comics.

From Michael’s about his new Kickstarter:

Short is Good

“Cabal and Other Irresponsible Invocations of The Muse” is my first book of short fiction. It’s got all the kinds of stories I’ve become known for in books, in comics, and on TV–fantasy, science fiction, and super hero tales.

It’s funny…until recently, I never felt compelled to write short stories. My natural inclination has always been to write full-length novels. If somebody was editing an anthology and they invited me to contribute, sure, I did that, and I invariably enjoyed it. But left to my own devices, I instinctively turned everything into an epic.

Then, about a year ago, I was kicking around a story called Cabal. We’ve all seen comic book heroes fighting teams of villains bent on taking them down for nefarious purposes, right? Well, in Cabal, I wanted to turn that notion on its ear. I wanted the team trying to take down the super-powered character to have only the best intentions. Then, as the story unfolded, we would find out if they were right or wrong to have those intentions.

And it would be a novel, of course. Because that’s what I’d always written. But Cabal didn’t want to be a novel. It wanted to be something shorter than that. I was flummoxed–flummoxed, I tell ya. But like any experienced writer, I knew better than to argue with my story. And that was how Cabal became a novella.

So great, I had a novella on my hands. Unfortunately, the market for novellas is a tricky one. I could have just made an e-book out of Cabal but, you know, I like the idea of holding a book in my hands. And it just so happened that I had other story ideas that I’d been kicking around, and the more I thought about them the more I realized they didn’t want to be novels either.

Eventually, I gave in. Short stories they yearned to be and short stories they would become. Which, in the end, turned out just fine…because I really like the work I’m doing in these stories. I’m proud of it. From top to bottom, these tales are as good as any novel I’ve ever written. (Better, maybe.)

But don’t take it from me. You be the judge. After all, you’re the one I’m writing for.

So, besides Cabal…what’s in this book?

* In The Speaker of Verse, a prequel to my Aztlan series of 21st-century Aztec Empire murder mysteries, a young Maxtla Colhua investigates the murder of a highly regarded educator.

* In The Scales of Justice, an untested advocate tries to right an old wrong in The City of A Thousand Gods.

* In Headless, a crewman aboard a starship does his best to persevere without a critical portion of his anatomy.

* In Behind Every Great Enhanced Being, the mothers of teenaged interplanetary heroes clash as only mothers can.

* In Connections, a woman with remarkable intellectual powers finally appears to have met her match.

* In The Wall…yeah, that Wall…we scale a possible future in a reality you just might recognize.
