A Joe Pitt Novel by Charlie Huston
This week, things change a bit. Michael, Evo & Summer start out talking about The Last Harbinger. A radio drama put out by Crazy Dog Audio Theater. Check them out if you are looking for something a little different to listen to.
Next, Michael and Summer call arcoss the pond and talk with Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. A couple of guys doing some amazing things in Young-Adult fantasy. Their books, The Edge Chronicles, are making quite a stir. Tune in and find out why.
We wrap things up with a round-the-table feed.
See you next year!
How better to express your love to your fellow human than by hacking into his website and pasting a bunch of fundie schlopp all over the place? It happened today to Scott Sigler's Ancestor:
We received a long email that said a lot of nasty things, but here is a quote from it to give you an idea of the content:
"You blasphemers are spreading the false scripiture (sic) of evolution, trying to make people think its okay to merge human DNA with animal DNA. Humans are not animals! It is impossible to combine Godly DNA of Man, who was created in God's image, with the DNA of beasts. God will punish (sic) you. We have destroyed your blog and hopefully your sinful story."
Scott's got the site up and running, but he's lost all the comments-- and he gets piles of comments for every episode.
Does anyone other than me find it ironic that people who are so bad at biology and anthropology have a good grasp of computer technology? For most of us, they go hand in hand. Maybe they should look up the definition of "fiction". Pretty sure it's out there...
A few weeks back, we received a package in the mail from The Dude from Mars. I didn't realize there were any dudes on Mars, nor that it was home to The Dude.
It turned out to be a promo pack from an independent singer/songwriter/producer/engineer, including a copy of his CD: Songs from Mars. I know that many of you are fans of the Dr. Demento show. If you are one of them, then this is right up your alley. Funny stuff.
I just did an interview with Alan Rothman on his Business of Success radio program. It's always interesting being interviewed by "old school" radio, and I'm always struck by the dichotomy of "that way", versus "our way".
If you're interested, you can listen or subscribe from this page. The interview was ostensibly in the vein of promoting Podcasting for Dummies (have you bought your copy yet), but we did get into science fiction, Serenity, and conventions toward the end.
Ghost Brigades is a pageturner with surprising emotional rewards, but I'm hoping that Scalzi plans to write more books in this universe, because as it is there are too many ideas here for his own good.
This week we talk to Joe Haldeman his book Old Tentieth. A book that tells us that living forever is a bit boring. Imortals casting themselves off into space for a 1000 year journey. Fun stuff.
Next up, We talk to Kit Reed about Dogs of Truth. A good collection of stories that you may enjoy.
This week's Library Segment is missing. Find out why.
The dragon goes hungry this week while Michael & Evo tell you about a convention you won't want to miss, and give away the MST3K DVD set to a lucky listener.
Don't miss it!
