Max McCoy speaks with Joyce about his recent personal adventure, exploring the depths of his own genome.  It's an ongoing adventure worthy of some of his fictional heroes -- unexpected twists and turns, sometimes more information than you know what to do with, and often more questions than answers are unearthed.

Max McCoy is an award-winning author and journalist. He's the author of four original Indiana Jones adventures for Lucasfilm, the critically acclaimed thriller The Moon Pool, and the Hellfire western noir trilogy. Damnation Road, the last book in the trilogy, won the 2011 Spur Award from the Western Writers of America for Best Novel. Hellfire Canyon, the first book, also won the Spur and was named a Kansas Notable Book for 2008. Max wrote the novelization for Steven Spielberg’s epic miniseries, Into the West. His books have been published by Random House, Simon and Schuster, and Kensington. He teaches journalism at Emporia State University
