More for your listening pleasure

Additional exceptional listens this week: Protecting Project Pulp had a great sci fi story from 1958, "Bread Overhead." Then on Pseudopod, the host of PPP narrated the creepy crawly "Coming to a Theater Near You."

Then slip back to July 27's Roundtable Podcast for "20 Minutes With Seanan McGuire," musician, artist, graphic novelist, and fiction/non-fiction writer. If she's not your fancy, drop back a few episodes for a workshop with guest host Seth Harwood, a heavy-duty noir…

A better experience, a better writer? No, a more considered experienced...

After reading a bit about Jennifer Chase, which I enjoyed I found that... I actually take Police work, or rather Police life for granted and, if nothing else being on Crime Space has tempted me to look at what I do, not as a writer but what I ignore as a Polic Officer. This is all in the hope that it will make me a better writer and, you know what, I think it will! I also hope that other bloggers, cops, writers, readers might be able to pull something from the trip.....

I'm not a…

Roundtable Podcast of Literature

The Internet's best-kept secret can be found at www.roundtablepodcast.com where Dave Robison and co-host Brian Humphrey kick around ideas with established authors. They don't limit themselves to any particular genre. They get into the sleeves-rolled-up nuts and bolts of the craft of writing.

The format of conversation as opposed to interview just really works. As a reader I come away seeing that author as a person and wanting to read…

It is May 1960 in Fort Worth, Texas as this fifth book in the series begins.

Review: Paul D. Brazill's "Drunk on the Moon"

I'm not a fan of the crop of paranormal fiction from the past few years. Glistening vampires fighting ripped werewolves over some ancient what-not has zero appeal. Not that it's suppose to grab me. I'm a married guy from the Midwest living the middle class dream. Frustrated metaphors for puberty have passed me by.

G4S

Okay, it's not cutting edge or mystery thriller territory but as a Police Officer I'd have to thank G4S for their ineptitude, even I've had crumbs off the table -Seal duties, no not American Seals but sealing or sanetising buildings (Hotels) after Search Officers have made them safe... this actually involves standing on my left foot for one hour then standing on my right foot for an hour and so on and so forth for until my ten hour shift is over! Is this the same Officer who wrote The…
