Welcome to Show #11! This week, we discuss Dune, the 1965 Frank Herbert novel that continues to have an impact on the way people think about science fiction.

Welcome to Show #10! This week, we discuss the 1985 fantasy Ladyhawke. Is it a cult classic, or is it something else entirely? The Ninjas spark up a lively talk about the story, the attention to detail in the locations, and perhaps that not enough attention was given to the soundtrack. Movies and mu

Welcome to Show #9! This week, we discuss Sundiver, the first novel in David Brin’s award-winning Uplift series. The first book of the first trilogy, the one that started it all. Dave, Summer and Joe have varying opinions of the story, which always makes for a lively chat. We didn’t go i

Welcome to Show #8! This week, we discuss Glen A. Larson’s Knight Rider. Summer ’s all better now (thanks so much for the well-wishes), so she, Joe, and Dave jump right back into the early 1980s and one of many “futuristic tech” scifi shows featuring toys for the big kids. Di

Welcome to Show #7! This week, we discuss Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash. Summer has the flu (or something like it), so Joe, Dave and special guest Jack Mangan (Duel of the Fates) talk about the novel that breathed new life into the cyberpunk genre, or perhaps set the bar too high for others but

Welcome to Show #6! This week, we discuss Battlestar Galactica, both the old and the new. Summer, Joe, Dave and special guest Tee Morris (Survival Guide to Writing Fantasy) talk about the original Battlestar Galactica, the new Galactica, and a few things in between. This week’s Old School Anim

Welcome to Show #5! This week, we head back to the classic bookshelves to discuss Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Lathe of Heaven. Summer, Joe and Dave talk about this cautionary dystopian fable about the power of dreams and the possible repercussions of wanting to play God for everyone else. We also

Welcome to Show #4! Today, we spread the love for the gizmos, the gadgets, the weapons, and the stylings of two of our favorite souped-up monster machines. Re-live the explosions and the cheese the way only the 1980’s could bring them to us! Joining Joe and myself again for this discussion is

We’re back! We can be delayed, but never kept away too long! Today, we talk about Roger Zelazny’s Hugo Award-winning novel, Lord of Light, first published in 1967. There are many levels to this book, and we try to hit most of them. Again joining Joe and myself for this discussion is Davi
