July 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Of course, I get that "Captain Jack" might be what drew most viewers to the BBC's DOCTOR WHO spin-off, TORCHWOOD, but, for my tastes, Gwen Cooper -- as played by the lovely Eve Myles -- was always more interesting.  She was the 'humanizing' element of the program, and, as such, I could simply identify with…

RAINVILLE Is Here!

Hey, folks, just wanted to pop in to give a little promo for my debut novel -- Rainville -- for anyone who'd love to make a purchase over at Amazon.

For those who want to know more, I'll include the link at the bottom.  I've described it to friends and family as a kinda/sorta…

July 7: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Jon Pertwee wasn't my first "Doctor."  Oh, I was familiar with him, but I honestly didn't begin watching the BBC's massive sci-fi franchise DOCTOR WHO until after Tom Baker was aboard as the time-traveling do-gooder.  I've since had the good fortune of going back and watching some of Pertwee's run, and,…

July 6: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Happy birthday wishes go out today -- July 6th -- to everyone's favorite DEMOLITION MAN, Sylvester Stallone!  He was also the actor who played the first go-round as JUDGE DREDD, but his version didn't quite have the franchise power Sly believed it…

July 5: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Now, I'd rather not mince words, but so far as Sci-Fi goes I tend to think the works of Ronald Moore are a bit overrated.  This isn't to say that I don't appreciate what he's done; rather I think the man gets far too much credit considered quite a bit of what he's done has been simply piled on the…

July 4: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Birthdays are great, but Trek birthdays are even better ... even for the folks who manage to land some of the smaller but no less important roles in our beloved franchise.  Take for example actress Marnie McPhail.  Not anyone could've become one of the first to learn just exactly how 'resistance is futile.'  No…

July 3: On This Day In Science Fiction History

INDEPENDENCE DAY (aka ID4) was one of the better popcorn summer tent-pole releases on the 1990's.  Released on this day back in 1996, the film did big box office and really helped cement Will Smith as the 'go to guy' for summer cinema.  Word on the web is that the…

July 2: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Veteran character actor Brock Peters came to the universe of STAR TREK initially as a rather nebulous Starfleet officer, but it wasn't until STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE that he was given a recurring role his gravitas commanded -- that of father to Captain Benjamin…

July 1: On This Day in Science Fiction History

You know, color me naive but I would've liked to have seen what actor Alan Ruck could've done with the Star Trek franchise.  Granted, his character only had a brief appearance -- his Capt. Harriman only had the conn briefly in the vignette that set-up the events for Star Trek: Generations -- but it…

June 30: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Actor Vincent D'onofrio was barely recognizable for his part in the original Men In Black (1997).  He played Edgar, the homicidal alien who sent all action in motion in the film, but the latter half has his shtick pretty much covered by a CGI creation.  D'onofrio was born on this day in…

June 29: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Veteran producer/director/visual effects wizard Ray Harryhausen was responsible for so much of the monster magic in so many tremendous films of the 20th century.  Though he's no longer with us, Harryhausen was born on this day in 1920.…

June 28: On This Day In Science Fiction History

If you don't love Felicia Day, then that's only evidence that you don't know Felicia Day.  This self-professed genre nerd is a pure delight, cleverly managing her addition to all things nerdy by attaching herself to some wonderful insane projects themselves.  Check out ROCK JOCKS if you haven't seen it,…

Still counting!

It was 41 years ago today that I was given an emergency tracheotomy. One of the so-called "doctors" actually had the balls to say to my parents, "I give him a week, tops." The last I heard, he died several years ago of a cocaine overdose, and I'm still here, just like Admiral Kirk on Regula. Like a poor marksman, he missed the target!

June 27: On This Day In Science Fiction History

For my tastes, I think it pretty rare for a full-blown children's movie to legitimately resonant as strongly as WALL-E does with adults ... especially adult fans of science fiction.  Disney and Pixar premiered this wonderful little tale of a cosmic janitor on this day back in…

"As the Goa'uld attack fleet approach Earth, all four members of the SG-1 team are taken…

The Start of Something Big (I hope)

My new science fiction novel, "Gone A-Viking," went on sale on Thursday on Kindle, and has already sold 4 copies. Not exactly Stephen King, but it's still the most books I've ever sold in such a short amount of time. If anyone here was one of the buyers, you have my eternal gratitude!

July 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Think what you may about Friends' regular Matt LeBlanc, but he was about the only thing that somehow felt right in the 1998 attempted reboot of Lost in Space (1998).  The film performed poorly (mostly when you figure in its unwarranted $80M budget), and, alas, that was the last we saw of it.  Leblanc was born on this…See More
