WRITTEN BOOK REVIEWS:

Ryan: 3 Stars “…A mastery of setting and mood, but a little aimless in navigating the swamps of weird fiction…

Wilk: 2 Stars “…Nothing will blow your hair back too hard but reading this is better than staring at a wall contemplating out eventual inability to exist…

Rick: 3 Stars “…I did enjoy the short stories, however I don’t prefer to read short stories there’s too much discontinuity...

Mike O’Reilly (Guest): 2 Stars “…the short stories didn’t do a whole lot for me…

In this episode Ryan Sean O’Reilly announced his acceptance to the 2015 class of the Viable Paradise Writer’s Workshop:

“Viable Paradise is a unique one-week residential workshop in writing and selling commercial science fiction and fantasy. The workshop is intimate, intense, and features extensive time spent with best-selling and award-winning authors and professional editors currently working in the field. VP concentrates on the art of writing fiction people want to read, and this concentration is reflected in post-workshop professional sales by our alumni.”  (from Viable Paradise website)

FUN FACTOIDS:

On the Show Ryan mentioned an in depth interview with True Detective creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto. This interview was from the “2014 Banff World Media Festival” – check it out here on YouTube:

 

Spoiler Alert: No, the Necronomicon is not real. The infamous Book of the Dead is actually a fictional tome invented by H.P. Lovecraft: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necronomicon. However, it’s also a source of wonderfully campy horror in the “Evil Dead” trilogy of movies by director, Sam Raimi.

    New Podcast episode for “No Deodorant in Outer Space”!

  4. […] On the show Ryan mentioned that this movie contains “long shots,” which we discussed in previous film adaptions of other works. That said, Rick, pointed out that unlike the other films we watched, these “long shots” like the dramatic choreographed action sequences that made those other long shots particularly impressive. We discussed this in the episodes on  “Children of Men” by Alfonso Cuaron (Clive Owen) (movie) and “True Detective” by Cary Joji Fukunaga (Matthew McConaughey) (miniseries). […]
