It's been a little while but we're back to finish off Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers with Part Three: Earth - a part that is as almost as short as its title.

Christie Stratos (For those of you who are Mothers of Inventions fans, the title makes perfect sense) Podcasting, in many ways, is a lot like cooking stew. You throw a bunch of stuff in a pot and see what happens. When a friend of the show brought us to the attention of another podcast, we were invited to be a part of The Writers Showcase and met C…

Sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere, but it didn’t stand in the way of Dune becoming a classic. We fold space and take a trip through Frank Herbert’s epic SF novel in the company of Arthur C Clarke Award director Tom Hunter.

When you discuss literature, inevitably one wonders what things are missing and in doing so , was it in error or purposeful. Welcome to the incomplete world of Heather M.

Marc Watson If there is one thing on this show that we have come to learn, and sometimes we question learning anything, it is that authors can come from anywhere and no single path leads to becoming an author. Marc Watson is a good example of coming at it from an oblique angle. He refers to himself as an Anti-author due to his unique path of reachi…

Jackiem Joyner Well it was bound to happen. After 448 episodes we have become a music podcast. Okay, not really.

Gisella Bustillos From time to time here on Sci Fi Saturday Night, we take a jump to the left. We put aside science fiction for the world of science fact. Every time we do we realize that the lines between the two blurs, which is as it should be. Good science fiction should be predicated in, and predictive of the future. Much like Star Trek communi…

Kathrin Hutson In 2020 we thought the world was strangely similar to the first book in the Blue Helix saga, Sleepwater Beat, like we had seen this before?

Autumn Grey In 2014 the comic world was introduced to The Twisted World of Jay Mooers’ Autumn Grey.
