TalkCast 506 – Nel Bently’s Earth

Sci-Fi Saturday Night

V.S. HolmesIn this first ‘Cast of 2022 we get to talk with one of our favorite author friends, V.S. Holmes. It is always wonderful to welcome Them home and catching up with one of our oldest author friends and oner of our fondest protagonists is always fun, so we spent the time reminiscing about V and Nel, where they had been, where they are now and where they are going because in a very real sense they are inextricably bound together. The essential bond between a recurring main character and their author grows over time and it is so wonderful to see Nel’s evolution and depth in book four of the series Heretics (Stars Edge).This is a special series of books about a special character in a special universe. Welcome back, Nel. Welcome back, V.http://www.scifisaturdaynight.com/podcast/talkcast506.mp3Download | Open Player in New Window Heretics (Stars Edge: Nel Bently Book 4)

Nel Bently beats Indiana Jones hand down with V.S. Holmes #67

Dark Signals

V.S. Holmes proves that Archaeology and Science Fiction go together like peanut butter and jelly. The Nel Bently books are on based on a sassy archaeologist that travels from planet to planet solving mysteries and saving worlds. Our conversation quickly turns from her amazing books to her real-life experiences and knowledge as a contract archaeologist. I love the conversation we had and I believe you find her to be as interesting and lovely as I did. S. Holmes is an international bestselling author. They created the REFORGED series and the NEL BENTLY BOOKS. Smoke and Rain, the first book in their fantasy quartet, won New Apple Literary's Excellence in Independent Publishing Award in 2015 and a Literary Titan Gold in 2020. In addition, they have published short fiction in several anthologies.As a disabled and queer human, they work as an advocate and educator for representation in SFF worlds. When not writing, they work as a contract archaeologist throughout the northeastern U.S. They live in a Tiny House with their spouse, a fellow archaeologist, their not-so-tiny dog, and own too many books for such a small abode. https://vsholmes.com/index.html https://www.amazon.com/V-S-Holmes/e/B014B55FJ0

TalkCast 390 – V.S. Holmes and Nel Bently

Sci-Fi Saturday Night

V.S. Holmes Our guest in this episode is returning author V.S. Holmes here to talk about some new interconnected projects of hers at Amphibian Press. First is her inclusion in a Science fiction short story anthology ‘Beamed Up.’ Joining with fellow “Amphibian” writers Cameron J. Quinn, Ariele Sieling and Cullen McHael, V.S.’ contribution is a story called “Disciples”, written in the Nel Bently universe. Her other project is the soon to be released Book 3 in the Nel Bently series “Strangers”. For those unfamiliar with the series, you can read the first book for free here. V.S. talked about Nel, where she came from how she developed and the parallels between Nel and herself. After that, we talked about the unique perspective that “Disciples” brings to the Nel Bently universe, allowing the reader the rare ability to see this from the opposite perspective, from the eyes of the “alien”, Lin Nalawangsa (but is Lin actually an alien?). This is an extremely enjoyable well-written series and we had a lot of fun talking about it with V.S., aside from not  having to do so in a truck stop with negligible internet access.
