Well this is episode 429 of Beam Me Up and being that it is the last program of this October, I am going for our annual Halloween show.
The first item presented is a great piece of music from none other than the vocal group Manhattan Transfer doing Twilight Zone. Nope, not that one by Golden Earring but one more closely attuned to the TV show of the same name.
Next a very unusual and wonderful short tale from Deborah Walker that combines a rural church in the English country side and quantum mechanics!
Colin Davies has graciously let me play Happy Halloween again. This is a crystalWizard production and between the two of them, they turn out a great story.

here we go guvna….
My opening comments for episode 428 are pretty much all over the place but I did manage to discuss some of the anime I have been following plus I jump down the x-37b rabbit hole.
My first piece of music is the opening to the Anime Series Wakfu, this series is without a doubt one of the oddest but most fun fantasy quests out there, and yes I am including One Piece. The characters are thoroughly endearing and the quest is something of a secondary goal that I would thing it would be only the hardened few who would pass on this fun series.
After the music, I spend a few moments (because so much of my “tv” entertainment is now coming from alternative sources of which cable is not even a strong minority.) wondering what might be coming once cable loses its’ strangle hold on tv entertainment.
Next up is CrystalWizard’s Wizard Bane Chapter 4 pt3
From the blog Boeing’s X-37b who’s whole fleet of 2, One of which just returned from a 22 month mission.
A new animated movie called Ambition looks to be a wildly entertaining film.
Cassini has treated us to a wonderful high rez photo of Hyperion.
Alexandra Grenberg’s “Echo” finishes off the afternoon. This enigmatic short story will give you a chill and in the end well, it WAS one simple act….

hoooooooooo! Yep it’s that time of the week again. This week – episode 426. This week in my opening comments I discuss the time paradox in A Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. Plus the stunning success of the Indian Mars mission.
My first story of the afternoon is by Jason Kahn and his Darke Inspectre series. Because I dropped the ball in September, and for continuity, I rerun episode 28 and continue straight on to episode 29.
Our next stop is the Beam Me Up blog, The first thing this week, what do you get the nero-scientist that has everything? How about a hard to believe demo of the state of CGI in the industry. SNC is calling foul with NASA’s choice of Space X and Boeing when one of the selected companies was higher in its bid than SNC!
Finally Crystal Wizard’s Wizard’s Bane Book 1 ch4,pt1
