Harris Tobias

Welcome to Beam Me Up episode 482. This week I start by playing a song selection, after which I read Harris Tobias’ the Word Maker. From there I head over to the Beam Me Up blog to read some of the most recent articles.

 Finally, in my “flash from the past” segment, I play part 3 of Poul Anderson’s story Inside Earth.

I start this week with a story from David Scholes called Other Side the I mistakenly call Reincarnation, it’s good no matter what the case.

From the blog, it would seem that Germany’s fusion reactor works! David has a story collection available on Amazon. Pluto has structures similar to ice pressure ridges but on a truly vast scale.

Finally I play David’s Urban Pacifiers, which is a really great short tale.

I  start  with a short story from Dave called Urban Pacifiers which asks the question “What and who will future police be like in the distant future?”
For articles: Marvel has some plans for the end of 2017,  the most recent NASA/ISS crew is due to set some longevity records.
The last short story is a most unusual invasion tale by new contributor  Tristan Fernie called “The Future Happened While We Stared At Our Phones”

This week I open with STYX Come Sail Away.  You wouldn’t think it had a science fiction connection, but it does!  Listen close.

Next I head to the blog with articles like (all tongue in cheek mind you) strange ways to die in space.

There is some breaking news concerning CBS’Supergirl.

And the story for this week: Automatic Sky by Stephen S. Powers

Episode 452! Wow! I am constantly amazed that the episodes keep coming out to 1 hour.  I keep thinking….it’s going to be late…it’s going to be late and as luck would have it, they come out on time.

My initial offering deals with the SF horror genre taking a major hit this week. two new stories, plus additional material from the blog.

After the opening monologue  I give us a taste of Blue Oyster.

Then the first story for the program, In Plain Sight episode #35 and the weirdness is starting to build for our favorite psychic detective Jack Garrett.

Next is a trip through the newest listings on the Beam Me Up blog – Like a rather “twisted” end to a Long March engine, or the research that may shore up the argument that Black Holes may indeed “evaporate”.

finally it is the second story for the afternoon.  Child Soldier by J. Alden.

I start the program with a list I love (The Darwin Award) and Joe helped light the fire.  Here we are looking at a 20 year study of the award and results.

How about a cut by Patti Smith singing an ode to the passing of the  Aqua Aqua Team Hunger Force called Aqua Team Dream?

The first story for the afternoon “A Bright Future” by Jamie Lackey. A good robot story with one of the best realizations of city so sleazy and filthy that you will want to bathe afterwards!

From the blog:
bad news from SyFy
The Universe

The ending story, “The Oricle is Never Wrong” by Jacey Bedford

Is brainwashing torture? Well it certainly seems that way in Himanshu Goel’s futuristic tale Brainwashing 101

I revisit Bad Dreams again with a lot of local listeners missing the first broadcast, no loss,  stories by Dave Scholes are like fine wine “even better with age”

From the blog:  a couple of great video sound tracks, really strange Mars picks, Planes that boggle the imagination and conversation points from yours truly.

news from Ed McKeown, a new book “My Outcast State” Now on Amazon.com

Enjoy

This week I do a live gig! Mainly for the extra time to get the story “A Matter of Character” by Ed McKeown, ready.   It still had glitches, but not so bad.

Next, from the blog  Kallimus says goodby for now.

David Scholes tells us that his newest book is on  Amazon.

NASA is showing great interest in Shackleton’s crater.

The Star Trek merch store has a new item that I am sure all Trekies would love to add to their collections.

I review Jupiter acceding.

Lastly:  I found an article that speculated on China’s capabilities of landing a man on the moon.
