On The Event Horizon: SF Writer / Producer Raoul Mongilardi

Screenwriter / producer / SF author Raoul Peter Mongilardi

Have we got a great show for you this weekend!  On The Event Horizon this week is science fiction novelist Raoul Mongilardi, author of the Next to the Gods series.  This series is of what we call the “world building” or “empire” class of science fiction, and it’s rich and dense.  If you love empire SF, you’ll find a lot to chew on here.

What makes Raoul so interesting to talk to, apart from the books themselves, is his rich and varied background in sci-fi film and television production.  He’s worked with Disney Imagineering, Paramount Television, and was even Stage Manager for the Geffen Playhouse.  He’s written a number of screenplays as well, and he’s a producer.  He grew up in a filmmaking family and his first big sci-fi project was on Star Trek: New Voyages on the Hugo Award-nominated episode World and Time Enough, where he served as 2nd Assistant Director.  He’s also done some fascinating documentaries, including one on the fabulous pipe organ at the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

  1. The Next To The Gods series would make incredible films. The sphere worlds and their inhabitants would be well served in an IMAX format and the story for a franchise of movies. Look forward to hearing what the author has to share.
