Rank #6: StorySmack Episode #18 - The Fifth Element
You may be shocked to know that THE FIFTH ELEMENT is 20 years old. That’s two decades of multipass, folks. We break down the storytelling elements (see what I did there) in the Luc Besson-directed classic.

Rank #7: StorySmack Episode #8 - Resident Evil
This week Scott and A discuss the Resident Evil franchise. We talk about all five movies currently available for at-home viewing, and our experience marathoning them this month. It’s been a wild ride, and we’re excited to go see Resident Evil: The Final Chapter this weekend!
Even if you’re not into these games or these movies, the success of these films can’t be ignored. And, honestly, they’re better than you might think at first.

In honor of the start of the NFL season, we not only have THE MVP landing on your doorsteps, but also we present a football-centric favorite among the Junkies, the short story “Number One With A Bullet.”
If you’ve never heard of the pitter Patterson of little feet before, we think you’re in for a treat.

Rank #9: StorySmack Episode #14 - European Tour
The European Tour of 2017 rolls along. We took a few minutes to talk about our feels and impressions from some of the amazing, life-changing things we’ve seen. We also discuss how seeing such things can affect a storyteller’s views, and impact (or create whole cloth) future stories.

Rank #12: FridayFix Episode # : Final news on THE CHAMPION eBook, hardcover, and audiobook
WE’VE GOT GIRTH! So you’re asking thing like, “when is THE CHAMPION audiobook out?” and “when can I get the eBook” and “will I get the eBook for free if I order the hardcover?”
The answers to all of these things are in this weeks FridayFix™. ARealGirl and the FDØ tell you what’s up with Book V of the GFL series. Also, an ancient guest shows up unexpectedly, and ARealGirl does not want to believe (Agent Mulder is less than pleased). The pallets of books await! Check out these pics, Junkies!

Rank #13: BLOOD IS RED Episode #2: Hunter Hunterson & Sons: Welcome to San Francisco, Part 1
Welcome to a rare FDØ foray into supernatural fiction. That’s right, ghosts and goblins and vamps and werewolves and what-not. We hope you dig it.
The full title of this story is “Hunter Hunterson & Sons: War Journal.” That, however, is a little long when you figure the headline is going to be “BLOOD IS RED Episode #2: Hunter Hunterson & Sons – War Journal (Part 1)”, so we trimmed it a little bit.
Why the long names? Because “Hunter Hunterson & Sons” is an ongoing series. You’ll hear much more about that in the “author’s notes” segment of the story, which will play at the end of Part II next week.

Rank #14: BLOOD IS RED Episode #7: The Great Snipe Hunt, Part 2
Nature abhors a vacuum. Still.
This is part two, wrapping up the story started last week.
Also doing some final wrap-up work today on Shipping Hell Week for THE MVP. Although, it’s not really a week anymore. And with two dozen or more Junkies coming to help … not really hellish either.

Rank #15: StorySmack Episode #21 - Mad Men
The first episode of this ground-breaking series aired on July 19, 2007. A decade later, the FDØ and the Director of Døøm sit down to discuss the cultural impact it had on television and on long-form storytelling.

Rank #16: BLOOD IS RED Episode #6: The Great Snipe Hunt, Part 1
Nature abhors a vacuum. I love this phrase (despite the fact that is is a personification of an abstract concept — there is no “Gaia,” I tell you). But where there are available resources, there is often life, and cities are teeming with available resources. They are also rife with shelter from the elements and places to hide, if an animal is smart enough to use them.
This is one of my favorite stories. I first podcast this back in 2007 for the Dawn & Drew show, one of the first podcasts to develop a big audience. Also, they both rock.
Like most of the stories in the BLOOD IS RED collection, I gave “Snipe Hunt” a solid edit. I wrote the story over ten years ago, so I want to brush up the polish brought on my by more-developed writing skillz.
This is a long-time Junkie favorite, and I hope you enjoy it.
Aug 19 2012
Rank #17: BONES ARE WHITE Episode #13: Bag Man
This is one of Scott’s favorite stories. “Bag Man” examines the concept of “judge not, lest ye yourself be judged” from the perspective of the media vultures that celebrate and profit from death and misery. When that camera turns the other way — and the “camera” is a supernatural killer — the news isn’t quite as much fun.

Rank #18: FridayFix Episode # : ANCESTOR Q&A
ANCESTOR is finished, and now it’s time for the assault of Junkie questions. We took questions from email, Twitter, Facebook and this very site, and we’re ready to give you the answers. The FDO™ and I jumped on Skype for a remote interview. As usual, it’s very difficult to keep him on-topic, but I did my best. If you still have questions, feel free to call 206-666-GORE (4673) or email email@example.com and we’ll answer them in a future FridayFix™.

Rank #19: FridayFix Episode # : SiglerFest Video Announcement
A few weeks back we posted the “Cribs” tour of the Office of Døøm. The response was so good, I thought we’d try letting you “sit in” on one of our weekly Tuesday morning video teleconferences. This week we were scheduled to talk SiglerFest. As it sometimes goes with the FDO™, things did not unfold as I’d imagined they would. I will leave it to you to decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
We’re just about sold out for SiglerFest, with fewer than 10 spaces remaining at the time of this posting. If you’re interested (and who wouldn’t be after Scott’s rousing Q & A above?) shake your booty over to the SiglerFest page and get in on this!
(P.S. I’m just now learning Final Cut Pro as a video editing tool, as you can probably tell once you watch. Still need practice, but it’s pretty sweet!)

Rank #20: BONES ARE WHITE Episode #11: Passenger, Part 3
And now the conclusion of our military-sf novella PASSENGER. Marcus Crowley was shot through the heart (and you’re to blame, amiright?) and thought he was a gonner, but awakens to find himself not only alive, but on the move — and he’s not the one controlling his own motions.
