Fiction Friday – “Private Beach” by Stacey Longo

Stacey Longo writes horror fiction of a particularly diabolical nature. Her themes prey upon the most primal of fears and her craft is clean and precise, stark, sharp edged terror. She grew up on a dairy farm in Glastonbury, CT  and lived on Block Island, RI for ten years, which is where she began her […]

Fiction Friday – Ben Bova

One might guess that someone who can write fascinating stories would automatically make a great guest. In to many instances this has proven not to be the case, but NOT with Ben Bova. Mr. Bova has been a frequent guest on our show, dating back to our old radio broadcast days. From the moment he […]

Fiction Friday – Kristi Peterson Schoonover

I became acquainted with Kristi through the New England Horror Writers Association. We met at a conference, and quite frankly, there may not be a more interesting group to speak with.

Fiction Friday – Robert Sheckley, Tell me something funny.

Robert Sheckley was one of the few science fiction writers to have a true sense of humor that translated into his work. A multiple Hugo and Nebula nominee, he was best known for his absurdist outlook and his stories were uniformly wry with a futuristic bent. His fan peers included Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, and […]

Fiction Friday: Edgar Allan Poe

This week for Fiction Friday I’d like to highlight the author Edgar Allan Poe. I know that this series is generally reserved for lesser known authors (and if you have a story you’d like to submit please send it on), but good old EAP deserves a bit of a mention this close to Halloween. October […]

Fiction Friday – The Space Opera

Well over 100 novels and short stories were penned between 1940 and 1981 and his writing remained in print late […]
