Love's Outer Limits co-host M. Christian (aka Chris) opens up about his long career as a writer of erotica, science fiction, horror, and so much more! He reads from two stories, "How Much?" and "Koi No Yokan," the tender story of two AI falling in love. Links to his most recent books, Horrorsexual, Hard Drive, and an anthology, Nine to Eternity, may be found on his website or via his twitter feed @MChristianzobop.
Listeners will want a reminder that our Episode 3 guests, Disasterina and Ave Rose, are presenting some of their new art at The Satanic Temple virtual event on Oct. 28th and 29th. Day tickets are only $6.66 each. Please support these amazing artists and performers!
Co-host M. Christian graciously interviews co-host Dr. Amy about her Guild of Ornamental Hermits novels, a fantasy series focused on the magical adventures of "the Hermits," aging denizens of funky Hermitville, a farm and arts collective located in the Puna district of Hawai'i Island. The books feature clown-obsessed Elves, wicked real estate speculators, supernatural bad guys, a determined documentary film crew, and a dimension-hopping giant salamander, among other things. A majority of the characters are LGBTQIA and not everyone is white. The books are called (1) The Dire Deeds of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits, (2) The Witching Work of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits, (3) The Queerest Quest of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits, and (4) The Perilous Past of the Guild of Ornamental Hermits. The third book is nearing completion and the fourth is in planning stages..
Dr. Amy read excerpts from Chapters Eight and Nine of The Dire Deeds during the show (ze got the chapter numbers wrong in the podcast). A recording of Dr. Amy reading the first chapter of Dire Deeds may be found here: https://guild-of-ornamental-hermits.com
The Dire Deeds is due to be published in the near future by FuturesPastEditions.com.
Correction: The Tolkien elf language is "Quenya," not "Quenta."
Disasterina--"LA's most Disasterous Dragkwene"--and Ave Rose--artist, writer, designer, singer, and performer extraordinaire--share a bit of their lives, love, activism, and art with us in this interview recorded Oct. 5, 2020. Disasterina is known to fans as a "final five" star of Dragula Season 2, with a cameo in Season 3. In addition to alternative drag, Disasterina is a musician, writer, visual artist, and probably "all kinds of other things" as we like to say here on Love's Outer Limits.
We enjoyed conversing with this multi-talented duo as their disembodied voices reached us from their bedroom in Culver City.
Disasterina and Ave's most spectacular co-creation to date is SadoPsychiatrist, a witty and wacky horror comedy show found on Amazon Prime. Disasterina plays Dr. Sado, a thrill-killing therapist with more than an axe to grind. Ave Rose plays a variety of roles, including her dueling drag king persona, Sleazy Mancini. SadoPsychiatrist also features several other Dragula stars, including Biqtch Puddin', Foxie Adjuia, Felony Dodger, Abhora, Xochi Mochi, and Meatball.
You can find Disasterina and Ave Rose on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. (Check out the Cybernetic Circus with Disasterina as a whip-smart Ringmistress!). And don't miss their Oct. 28th and 29th appearances, showing demon sculptures and reading demon stories, at The Satanic Estate virtual openhouse [Oct.9th-31st] on TSTVHQ.com (daily tickets, a monthly pass, and gala Halloween tickets available here).
Love's Outer Limits was deeply honored and pleased to have this time with Disasterina and Ave and we look forward to more!
