First episode of 2021 only halfway through 2021! This one is a wide ranging episode in which we cover my RedStarReviews Favorite Book Of The Year Award for 2020, Vintage SciFi Month, Warhammer40K, painting, Indie SciFi gets a new awards competition, and an offering of personal encouragement to not be discouraged in difficult times. Hope you enjoy and hope you are well!
For the fifth episode of season two we have something really special! The founder of Vintage SciFi Month joins for a conversation on one of the greatest months of reading ever! The end is a bit abrupt as my headset died on me so apologies for that, but this episode was so much fun to produce so we want to give it to you in its entirety! Also here are several resources for finding material to read for Vintage SciFi Month (which takes place every January). Here are the links to the resources talked about in the podcast:

This is the story LittleRedReviewer was talking about by the Bengali lady. It is Sultana's Dream by Rokheya Sakhawat Hossain, from The Big Book of Science Fiction. the story was published in 1908, and it was also recently reprinted at Strange Horizons
Open Road Media - lots of classic scifi avail in print and e-book
and we also hope people check out e-book options and curbside pick up their local library. even if you don't live near a library, or can't get to one, or it isn't open, there's a good chance no matter where someone lives, their county's library system has an ebook loan program.
This episode is a special one as it is the first time we have a cohost on the show! TheReadingRunner joins for a conversation about books, art, SciFi, and even running! Hope you enjoy listening in, and please note the artwork for this episode is provided by TheReadingRunner. He also has a podcast that you should check out, and expect him back here for more conversations in the future!
So happy to have you join for season two! If you missed season one have no fear you can listen anyways! The podcast is back with exciting new features! Mainly Pre Unity Valiant Comic Books! What are these comic books you ask? Listen in to find out!
Y’all, my platform might not be large, but it will be used to speak out against oppression and to speak up for the oppressed. We live in a time when we need to no longer be silent and need to speak up. This episode is me starting to speak out. Please listen with an open mind. Please realize I won’t always get everything right, but I will strive to be teachable and to listen. Let me say this clearly: Black Lives Matter.
A nostalgic and rambling dive into one of my comic book boxes! I grabbed the one that is filled with random comic books that I’ve not seen in ages and emptied it out while discussing aspects of 90’s comic books and the industry. Join me for a fun exploration of a box of comic books!
Be sure to listen to parts 1 and 1&1/2 first but here is part 2! We take a silly and hopefully fun walk through my bookshelves as I describe one book per shelf and give my thoughts on it. Thank you for listening!
For some reason when I published episode sixteen it published complete on Anchor but incomplete on Apple Podcasts and Spotify! To correct this I’ve added the missing (almost) ten minutes here to episode 16&1/2 so that you can hopefully continue to enjoy this fun walk through my shelves!
Join me as I get a little silly and travel through my shelves reading book descriptions in a very serious and cheesy voice! This one was fun to make, hope you enjoy it! One important note the episode cut out a ten minute segment at the end but no worries I’m adding it as episode 16 & 1/2!
In this episode of the podcast we go into detail about what a Group Read is, how to host one, tips for improving one, and then we talk about the Group Reads that have happened and will be happening soon!
Episode Ten: My Top 10 Fantasy Series ever! Ok maybe not for ever type of ever but definitely right now and probably for a long time! Plus honorable mentions to several amazing series that I considered for the list.
Episode 8: Finish February! I’m also subtitling this episode as The Books Of Winter! Each February I have a reading goal, and this episode explains what that goal is and ways that Finish February might also fit into your reading goals. Hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording!
