Alpha Waves Radio

Just a heads-up for those interested:

I just got through recording an interview segment which will appear on the Alpha Waves internet radio show, this Friday the 17th at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific.

The subject of the show is “Pulp (Science) Fiction”, and will feature Planet Stories publisher Erik Mona, Doc Wilde author Tim Byrd, and your humble narrator.

Weekend Update

Fairly uneventful weekend — and the first that I didn’t work through in about a month and a half.

  • Watched Doctor Who – The Planet of the Dead, which aired in the UK on Saturday. Fun, but nothing particularly “special” about it. Felt like a mid-season episode (which, really, I suppose it is). Michelle Ryan was a nice short-term companion (and in a full season, would’ve made for a great long-term one). Some *very* interesting foreshadowing of what’s to come (in the form of a prophecy of sorts).
  • Major GeekScore at Half-Price Books on Sunday: Found still-in-shrinkwrap DVDs of Filmation’s Lone Ranger & Zorro cartoons, as well as one of the major loves of my childhood: Jason of Star Command!
  • Saw a bunch more Doc Savage and Shadow reprints at Half-Price, but didn’t have a list of the ones I already own handy, so I had to walk away.
  • Finished getting caught up on the past year’s worth of Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps and Immortal Iron Fist. Good stuff — I’m not as big a fan of the new creative team on Iron Fist as I was of the launch team, but it’s still enjoyable, with nice easter eggs here and there for martial arts film fans (Example: A flashback to the Old-West version of Iron Fist, whose name is Kwai Jun-Fan — combining the name of Carradine’s character from the “eastern Western” Kung Fu, Kwai Chang Caine, with the Cantonese name of Bruce Lee, Lee Jun-Fan).

Finishing up some work today and tomorrow (including developmental stuff on Far West), before heading to Las Vegas for the GAMA Trade Show.
