Facing the Future
Tonight we are talking with Mike Coumatos and Bill Scott, co-writers, big thinkers, and future planners. It is always better to be prepared, right? Their first book, Space Wars, described the possible type of combat we might see if all the powers that be decide to stew and feud.
Their second book, CounterSpace, continues the story.
Here are the backgrounds for Mike and Bill:
MICHAEL COUMATOS is a former U.S. Navy test pilot, ship's captain, and
commodore; U.S. Space Command director of wargaming; and a National
Security Council counterterrorism advisor.
WILLIAM B. SCOTT is a retired bureau chief of Aviation Week & Space Technology and a nine-year Air force veteran who served as aircrew on nuclear sampling missions.

The Show: Mike Coumatos and Bill Scott have brought their combined expertise to bear on a series of books about the future of warcraft in the world as we know it. Using actual war-game technology from real-world scenarios, they have created two thrilling novels, so far.
