TalkCast 530 – They Call it Plastic City, Bubba




It’s Keith

In this ‘Cast, we speak with Keith Gleason, the guy with many hats. We talk about his podcast Indie Comics Relay with Johnny C (LOVE YOUR COFFEE, man) and we spend some time talking about his own personal comic Mighty Mascots on Alterna Comics. We also talk about sci fi on tv which we all just LOVe and dish about The Man Who Fell to Earth, Westworld, Harley Quinn and The Time Traveler’s Wife

That would normally be enough for a show BUT, this ‘Cast is really all about the triumphant return of Plastic City Comic Con. Join Keith, The Capt. and I as we discuss what a grand time it will be.

TalkCast 529 – Anthropodermic Bibliopegy for Beginers




In this “Cast we get to talk with old friend Mark Leslie and new friend Julie Strauss. Why are they on together? Well, they have collaborated on the newest book in the Canadian Werewolf series, “Lover’s Moon. This book is a skillful telling of how The two protagonists, Gail and Michael, meet and fall in love. It is a romance, paranormal urban horror tale woven between two very different people who probably shouldn’t be together and yet they are. Wonderfully told in a point/counterpoint style, the two writers complement each other ass the two characters interact in New York’s paranormal community finding commonality with each other as werewolf and occultist. The pairing of these characters is as interesting as the pairing of Mark and Julie, so it’s a lot of fun to talk with them about how and why this book came together and where this joint venture is heading in the future. Join us now as we learn why Buddy always still talks in riddles.

TalkCast 528 – Do You Even Know What A Red Shirt Means or More Quantum Nonsense?




C.T. Phipps

Welcome to 6 Degrees of Kelvin Bacon Grease by way of Vance Turbo and his ragtag crew of intergalactic misfits brought to you by the keenly twisted mind of our good friend and wonderful guest C. T. Phipps who we once again have the good fortune to speak with as he launches his newest sci fi epic series “Space Academy Dropouts”(cue echo, please). It’s a fun romp through a twisted universe and with C.T. as our guide and narrator tonight, we get a sneak peek into how and why this happened and where former Cadet Vannevar Tagash or as he wants to be known Vance Turbo and the human race is headed in the coming episodes. Where else might you hear a character say, “you’ve got that sci fi pheromone that makes someone want to bork you”.

TalkCast 526 – What Can Be Said About Dr. Jekyll Alien Hunter?




Official Five Timer’s Club Member

As it turns out, quite a bit.  We got to learn about this project about 8 months ago from Dr. Bruce when he dropped the title talking about another project in Talkcast 503. So now we get to finally meet gifted new artist Julia Kazasnowska (in a live feed from Poland) and discuss the project from inception to fruition and how the collaboration will continue with future projects including animation and a second graphic novel. We also got a chance to talk about the editor George Verongas, Gary and Laura Dumm and Harvey Pekar. It’s an eclectic mix of influences that brings Hanna Jekyll’s story to like. Enjoy the chaos!

TalkCast 525 – I Get It, The Earth Is A F**ked Up Place




It’s a funny thing about wars in space. Just when you think you know who you’re fighting, you learn you just might be mistaken. This is kind of where we pick up the narrative with David E. Kelly, author of Kwelengsen Dawn: Logan’s World, Book Two, because, to abuse the olde joke, there really were just so damn many unanswered questions in Book One. And that, dear listeners, is where tonight’s conversation begins.The guarantee is not that all the queries will be answered, for surely (and don’t call him Shirley) they will not, however, once again David provides interesting insight into the characters and plot development as well as where book three may well lead. Capt Cam once again provides amusing counterpoint as well as a smashing new recipe for Cambodian Stuffed Groat Clusters. 

TalkCast 524 – It’s Sherbet Night and Richard’s Here




Official Five Timer’s Club Member

On the ‘Cast tonight is a great friend and wonderful writer, Richard Paolinelli, here to talk about book two in the Starquest 4th. Age Adventure Series: Galen’s Blade. This book has everything a reader wanted in a sequel; terse precise writing that advances a gripping story quickly and efficiently with wonderful engaging characters and a plot that keeps the reader engaged and guessing throughout the story. Time and time again, Richard brings his writing abilities to the forefront and delivers a compelling continuation of book one with the sly smirk of a carnival barker, always having something up his sleeve, so, of course, when the book ends we readers are left wanting  and waiting for the promised books 3 and 4 to wrap this saga up within the “Starquest” saga. As impatient as I am for the rest of this story, I am content with this next tale of The Galactic Knights. Enjoy the conversation.

TalkCast 523 – The Middling Affliction & Cthulhu and You




 

Our first guest is Alex Shvartsman here to talk about his first  book in “The Conradverse”, The Middling Affliction. This book is a kind of interweaving urban fantasy which is based in New  York City and emcompasses mythos, monsters, various religions, the druids and a dash of paranormal organized crime. It’s a great thriller and we get a chance to talk with Alex about a lot of the background behind the book and how it came to be as well as where the series is going.

 

 

 

Our second guest is Uncle Jason Ciaramella,one of the creators and  writer of the C is for Cthulhu project about their current kickstarter, the Cthulhu brouhaha (I have always wanted to say that), how he got into this and turned lovecraftian horror into a children’s cottage industry.

TalkCast 522 – We’re Going To Talk To This Guy….




In tonight’s ‘Cast, we get a surprise guest and get to spend the time with Mickey Mikkelson, Owner and Operator of Creative Edge Publicity, a company that Sci Fi Saturday Night has forged at strategic alliance with over the past four years. We met Mickey when one of our friends/favorite authors mentioned us to him, he listened to us and the rest is muddied in history. Mickey has brought us a myriad of interesting guests over the years so we though is appropriate to bring out the man behind the curtain and talk to him for a change. Enjoy The chaos.

What’s Capt. Cam Watching?

Captain Cam is always trying to improve himself.  Of late I have been working on improving my cooking skills and the first place I went to was the Mecca of cooking information, YouTube.  I entered into the search engine ‘cooking videos appropriate for Captain Cam’ and I got the following Dining with Danhausen cooking Hot Pockets’.  It was right about my speed.

Danhausen does a variety of videos but the cooking ones caught my eye.  How to describe Danhausen?  In a blender add every late night horror movie host, a dash of PeeWee Herman, and Simpsons humor and you have Danhausen.  And what better person to learn cooking from then someone whose day job is professional wrestler?  Next is a lesson on making popcorn.

TalkCast 521 – Kwelengsen Storm by David M. Kelly




 

 

In this ‘Cast we get to talk with David M. Kelly about a spin off from a series of his Joe Ballen books. The first book in the Logan’s World series (see above) continues on worldbuilding in a near future. The beauty of this is Kelly’s meticulous attention to detail without going into technological detail allowing the story to flow and characters to develop. We had the opportunity to explore his process in depth and talk about his building development. Science in science fiction, when unobtrusively layered, is absolutely wonderful. Enjoy.
