TalkCast 466 – Prose and Cons (with apologies to Eddie Murphy)

Why do bad things always happen to good people? Why  does the perfect point on your pencil always snap off? What do you trip on your own shoe laces? Why have all the conventions been cancelled? Damned if we know but we  talked about them anyway with one of our best convention buddies Keith Gleason, […]

TalkCast 463 – If Safety Deposit Boxes Could Talk

Here at Sci Fi Saturday Night, we read a lot of books.  In fact, that may be an understatement this year more than most due to the understandable peculiarities that pandemics do to us.  In reading as many books as we have over this “pandenterious” time we have discovered many many things. One thing we […]

TalkCast 252 – Things That It Isn’t, Not Things That It Is

When you discuss literature, inevitably one wonders what things are missing and in doing so , was it in error or purposeful. Welcome to the incomplete world of Heather M. Gooden, an author who dangles more threads than a blind seamstress and does so knowinging and with gleeful malice. If every picture tells a story, […]
