TalkCast 408 – A Series Of Fortunate Events or Alvin Baylor Lives!




Alvin Baylor Lives!

Alvin Baylor Lives!

This episode is actually two stories in one. One is the obvious part. Alvin Baylor Lives! is a fascinating well-constructed Sci Fi novel/audio book set in the far future with McGuffin after McGuffin to keep the reader/listener enthralled. One the one hand, charming while at the same time gritty, we learn about the world that Alvin inhabits, the society he survives in and the profound affect one man can have.

The other story is about two boyhood friends, Maximillian Gray and Josh Horowitz. After surviving the “rigors” of public education together in the Greater LA Area, they went their separate ways as often happens. Max and Josh both found themselves in the entertainment industry and a chance social media reconnection brought them back together for this project: Max as writer and Josh as audio book creator.

So, this episode is two fascinating stories. One is about a book/audio book and the other is the rekindling of a friendship to create it. It’s a really cool story with two really eloquent interesting men.

Enjoy the chaos. We did, for sure.

When we moved to podcasting we opened up our Area 51 Home to include Dru, Awake By Java, The Dead Red Head, Zombrarian, R Daneel Olivaw, Winter Is Coming, Samantha B, Sir Sara, Amandatron 3000 and Stacey L.

Thats to all our listeners for joining us on this merry trip.

TalkCast 407 – The The Philip K Dick Film Festival 2019




Dan Abella

Dan Abella

In this edition, we talk with friend of the show, Daniel Abella, the force behind The Philip K Dick Film Festival. This year is a hybrid affair with sessions on both coasts.

New York Showings:

 

 

Los Angeles Area Showings:

Any conversation with Dan is fun but when we get to talk about his festival, its always a treat,. We talked about the inclusion this year of web-series. The festival decided there were a number of web-series contributors that has a voice and PKDFF was going to give it to them. The discussion then turned to the many unique and distinctive voices this year in the festival all of which, in some way, somehow embraced some part of the thematic qualities of Philip K Dick and his work.

As more and more festivals pop up each year, this one and its creator remain one of my favorites. Sit back and enjoy a little time with Dan Abella and the Philip K Dick Film Festival 2019

TalkCast 406 – Scot Noel & Dreamforge




Scot Noel

Scot Noel

On this edition of Sci Fi Saturday Night we go old school and talk about a new print magazine. To be fair, Dreamforge is much much more than just a print magazine. It is in fact a print,/digital hybrid quarterly event of Science Fiction with its own voice, its own look and its own outlook. That outlook is one of positivity for the human condition surrounded by a unique digital interface for the participant.

Scot Noel, the driving force behind Dreamforge,spent some time with us just as his KickStarter was about to end (by the time of this airing, it has been fully funded). We got the chance to talk about how beautiful the print version is and why it was so important to him to have a quality hard version of Dreamforce. On their website there is also  a unique portal for readers to interact as well. We spoke about the positive outlook of this project in “less than positive times” and had a wonderful. relaxed and fun conversation.

It’s important to remember that science fiction can also bring out the best in who we are and what may become. Dreamforge  works to bring that forward in a unique and yet also very old school way. It is a quite  wonderful effort.

Enjoy the chaos

TalkCast 405 – Who Knew It Was Shakespeare Season Again?




The Sirens Song

The Sirens Song

In this episode we speak again with multi-talented Nick Shakespeare about what’s he’s currently working on, what his new projects are, the state of his current projects.

Nick gets to talk about the current state of his personal project The Sirens Song Parts One and Two, as well as his day job as storyboard artist and how his current success has delayed his “other stuff”.

We get sidetracked talking about the inevitable Marvel vs. DC movies and why oh why DC just doesn’t seem to get it…yet. Controversial? Perhaps, but interesting viewpoints. Good conversation is what we do.

Enjoy the chaos.

TalkCast 404 – Scott Wauchope and The Doctor




Doctor-The-Who

Doctor-The-Who

Welcome to a new season of Sci Fi Saturday Night, whatever that means. As part of our renewed pledge to only talk about stuff we like, in this episode we are pleased to introduce our vast listening audience, the marvelous mind and talents of Scott Wauchope.

Scott brings a lot to the “Artists Alley” table, so to speak. He is a talented artist, a gifted writer and a man with a passion project. In this episode we discuss this passion project, ‘Doctor-The-Who and The Lost Imagination’. It’s an hour all about Scott, how he got to where he is in the artist community, why this is his project of the heart and his plans for it for the future. This is the first of a planned 8 book series, so the horizon bodes well for many more original stories and art in this stunning world he has created.

Enjoy the chaos.

TalkCast 203 – A Brief Introduction to the World of Eric Radvon




Erik Radvon

Erik Radvon

When I go to a convention there is no real idea of who I might meet. It might be someone from my other work in such outrageously inventive cosplay you don’t even recognize them, it might be a long-lost friend from school days past who is now an artisan and produces the most amazing monster jars or it just might be someone so different and interesting you want them on your podcast. Such is the case with Eric Radvon. At Plastic City Comic Con last year, I was wandering the floor aimlessly, looking, and finding cool things to buy and interesting people to talk with when I stumbled across a gentleman sitting at his booth. We talked and an interesting story began to unfold about a journalist turned fiction writer turned comic creator and the oddly twisted path the led him to that convention.

Welcome to the world of Eric Radvon, a world that began, for the purposes of this story, as a writer for Worcester Magazine and brought him through many incarnations, through Famous Monsters of Filmland, text video games, television and back to one of his first loves, comics.

Sit back and experience an absorbing conversation with an interesting man in creative times; the trifecta of fascinating.

Enjoy the chaos.

TalkCast 402 – The Girl With The Blue Hair




Ceara Comeau

Ceara Comeau

As has been mentioned over and over, one of the best things about setting up at conventions is not only the chance to talk to our fans and listeners but also to meet old friend as well as new talented people. Terry Thomas, from Keene Comic Con came by our booth at Granite Con to talk to us about some of the guests that were going to be there. He spoke specifically about a young lady with blue hair whose name had slipped his mind but was an “up and coming Sci Fi author” and wanted us to meet her there. A little bit later that afternoon, whom should come by the SFSN booth but that selfsame blue haired young lady, Ceara Comeau, wanting to talk with us about conventions and writing and how she had been listening to the podcast and her book “Memories of Chronosalis” for the better part of as hour.

At Keene, two weeks later, we met up with Ceara again and she seemed to be having a wonderful time interacting with the convention attendees and other guests. Her natural ease and relaxed demeanor with others was the perfect way for her to enjoy the convention and that attitude carried over to this interview. Interestingly, her writing maintains that same storytelling ease while giving the reader the opportunity to see the wonderful “word paintings” she creates to lead the reader into this new world of Chronosalis.

Join us for an relaxed fun and interesting time talking to “The Girl With Blue Hair”.
