Cover to Cover #323A: Franchises, Tie-Ins, and Zombies, oh my!

Cover to Cover #81: Scott Nicholson / Justin Gustainis

Scott Nicholson
Scott is always a welcome edition to our show, and returns to speak about The Harvest, his latest "Appalachian Gothic" novel. Referred to as Deliverance meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers, it deals with the encroachment of modern technology and civilization into the pristine and native environment. Oh, and aliens. Green ones. Or just one big one. Read the book to figure it out.

Sometime science doesn't go quite the way you want it to. In The Hades Project, innocent diddling with the space/time continuum opens up a gate to hell. And that pretty much ruins your whole day. The story takes on some crime-thriller aspects and Vietnam flashbacks. I love the smell of brimstone in the morning.

  • Christian Bale straps on the utility belt
  • Underworld under lawsuit?
  • Keeping tabs on pervs
  • War is too costly. Send in the robots! (Can you say Terminator?)
  • NASA suffers another crash. Not quite as tragic.

Feed the Dragon

Review: "Star Trek FAQ" by Mark Clark

As a solid Trek fan I am always on the lookout for good books on the franchise, and Star Trek FAQ comes through in spades.   [Read more...]

Review: "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline

It's a little intimidating to review a book that has been so widely (and positively) reviewed. For authors, I think it would be useful to study this campaign and see what has made it so successful.   [Read more...]

Review: "Discount Armageddon" by Seanan McGuire

The world is a fairly orderly place, talking mice, gorgons, Chupacabra... these are things of fairy tales, mythology and supermarket tabloids. Not so in Seanan McGuire's new novel Discount Armageddon, the first book in her new InCryptid series.   [Read more...]
