TalkCast 390 – V.S. Holmes and Nel Bently

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.

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.

Sullivan, who’s here to tell us about his new book, Hollow World.  Here’s the blurb from GoodReads: Ellis Rogers is an ordinary man who is about to embark on an extraordinary journey. All his life he has played it safe and done the right thing, but when faced with a terminal illness, he’s willing to take an insane gamble. He’s built a time machine in his garage, and if it works, he’ll face a world that challenges his understanding of what it means to be human, what it takes to love, and the cost of paradise. He could find more than a cure for his illness; he might find what everyone has been searching for since time began…but only if he can survive Hollow World.

TalkCast 417 – Joseph Paradis Invents New Worlds

Joseph ParadisWhen you go to Author Expo’s or conventions you can meet tons of diverse people and if you’re foolish enough to “judge a book by its cover” or in this case “an author by his looks”, you may sometimes ‘have gravely misjudged the situation’.Meet Joseph Paradis. We spoke at a meeting a few months back and I’m not sure what it was that I expected when I received his book but what ever my expectations were it was most certainly NOT Saving The Dark Side – The Devotion. To explain, when you listen to our conversation on this ‘cast, Joe is a very likeable, dynamic, personable kind of guy with a genuine warmth and pleasant air about him. The conversation we had at the Expo was very nice and relaxed, albeit brief, as conversations in this type of setting usually are.So Joe created this universe and introduces us to its main character, Cole. When he was 3 years old he began to “disappear”. First for hours and then days at a time and never had any idea where he had gone. Joe slowly brings the reader jarringly through his childhood to the point at which Cole disappears from earth completely  into a series of events that continue to test and teach him about what he is truly capable of.Some books take your hand and gently guide you through a plot; others drop you in the middle of nowhere and force you to figure it out. This book punches you in the face again and again, and is compelling enough to make you want more and more. I warn you now; the reader will be coerced to root for Cole no matter what and you should. The book is that well written.Enjoy the bookEnjoy the conversationEnjoy the chaoshttp://www.scifisaturdaynight.com/podcast/talkcast417.mp3Download | Open Player in New Window Saving The Darkside Book One – the Devotion Click HERE for a free copy of his introductory short story to this universe Her Gift For You

TalkCast 402 – The Girl With The Blue Hair

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.

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

TalkCast 408 – A Series Of Fortunate Events or 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.
