The writer gives us the lowdown on how she got into writing and her personal journey to becoming a published Science Fiction writer.

Ada talks us through some of the characters and storylines of the book to give those that haven't checked the books out yet a small taste of what they can expect. She also talks about how her decision to make her main character an Autistic scientist surprised her in a few ways and chats a little bit about her creative process as a writer saying that she usually has the beginning, middle, and end of her books figured out in advance of writing the story. Being that a few of us here at SciFiPulse Radio is on the Autism Spectrum we also asked Ada her thoughts on representation in the publishing industry as well as representation in film and television.

SFP-NOW: Ben and Ian Chat with David Hartley
For this episode, we do something a little different and host a discussion with up-and-coming UK-based writer Dave Hartley. Based in Manchester, England. Dave Hartley is a writer of science fiction and fantasy stories and fairly recently published his latest story called 'Pigskin', which is somewhat of a modern take on George Orwell's 'Animal Farm'.Dave's Works and Interests As well as discussing his Phd, Dave Hartley also discussed some of his works of fiction. Some of the focus was on one of his most recent releases, "Pigskin", a dark, twisted fable about the horrors of industrial farming. It's available from the wonderful Fly on the Wall Press, which has published many other science fiction works, and other speculative fiction. Dave's very much a writer who draws on what he believes in. For example, he's an enthusiastic and dedicated animal rights activist. But we chose to stick with what we know most about, and further explore depictions of autism within the world of science fiction, within books and also in film and TV, too. Autism Within Science FictionDave's favourite film is the fantastic Blade Runner (1982), from the wonderful Ridley Scott. His theses focuses on how it may well be a narrative concerning autism. Consequently, we considered other characters that might also be codified representations of autism. The obvious ones included Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Data (Brent Spiner), from the Star Trek franchise. But there were other interesting characters too, that emerged during the conversation. But we don't want to tell you everything we discussed, you can listen for yourself. If you've some of your own favourite representations, then by all means leave us a comment and let us know what you think. You can keep up with up and coming releases by Dave Hartley on his website and blog. His latest collection, "Incorcisms" is out now. If you're interested in autistic representation, Dave runs Autism Through Cinema, his ongoing podcast series freely accessible on his site. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

An acclaimed filmmaker and writer as well as a Trustee of the Ray Harryhausen Foundation, which preserves and displays the work of the legendary special effects artist and filmmaker. In the episode. John takes us through his early career and how he found friendship with the late filmmaker who created memorable monsters such as Medusa and the Kraken from the original 'Clash of The Titans' and many more. He also talks in-depth about many of the things that can be found in his book 'Harryhausen: The Lost Movies', which I highly recommend to fans of genre film and television. As it gives insight into the many things that Ray Harryhausen would have liked to do. But never got to due to budgetary reasons. John also discusses the incredible journey that he went on. When putting together his Flash Gordon book 'Flash Gordon: The Official Story of the Film'. Which is an incredible story to listen to and well worth the time in the telling. In short. When John wrote the book and it came time to look for images from the film. He learned at the last minute that the studio didn't save anything. So he had to source images and production stills from the fan community and some of the people that worked behind the scenes on the film. Added to all of this great stuff. John also previews his new book, which is due out in September, which is called 'Escape From New York: The Official Story of the Film'. So if you enjoy retro movies and appreciate classic genre entertainment. Tune into this episode because we cover a hell of a lot of stuff.You learn more about John Walsh and his work at johnwalshfilmmaker.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Both Ian and Raissa were impressed with Ruby Rose's interpretation of Bat Woman, but felt that not enough was seen of her given that she was only in the second episode, but look forward to seeing her get developed in the future. We also take some time to look back at Jody Whitaker's first season as Doctor Who and discuss the strong and weak points of the season. We both pretty much come to the conclusion that this first season for Jody Whitaker's Doctor hasn't been a strong one. So why not set your time machines on pause.

SFP-NOW examines the PC of Supergirl
Welcome to another episode of SFP-NOWFor this episode Raissa and Ian discuss recent episodes of Doctor Who, Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. One topic that gets discussed is how we feel that the political stance in Supergirl could be ruining the series given that it is so obvious in regards to where the story will wind up. As far as the other DC shows go. We both come to the conclusion that 'Arrow' is knocking it out of the park this year and we speculate as to whether or not we'll eventually see the other Al Ghul sister. When it comes to Doctor Who. We discuss the recent historical episodes and how they are written a little differently to how they were on the classic series. So tune in and feel free to comment on anything we say.
