August 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Most folks know her as Katniss Everdeen, but, to the rest of us, she's regular ol' Jennifer Lawrence, actress headlining the popular Hunger Games trilogy.  Plus, she's done a terrific turn as Mystique in the X-Men: First…

August 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Part mockumentary & part story, Neill Blomkamp's District 9 captivated audiences when it premiered on this day back in 2009.  At its heart, the film told the story of a government official caught between doing his job and doing what's best for…

August 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day back in 2004, the Alien and the Predator franchises had their first and most ballyhooed crossover when AvP: Aliens vs Predator premiered theatrically.  Fans weren't exactly won over -- most found this PG-rated…

August 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

In the original Star Trek (the television series), the character of Christopher Pike was basically reduced to that of a legend without all of the accompanying gravitas: bound to a high-tech wheelchair and only legitimately appearing in TAS's only two-parter ("The Menagerie"), Pike was…

August 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

For a generation of filmgoers, the face of Ian McDiarmid is the face of ultimate evil.  And why shouldn't he be?  It was he, after all, who manipulated the Dark Lord of the Sith -- Darth Vader -- and seduced him to the Dark Side of the Force.  Under his machinations, Vader rose to power,…

August 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

If you haven't seen GRABBERS (2012), then get yourself to a video store right now or, better yet, just buy yourself the DVD.  Methinks you'll be pleasantly surprised by what you get in this sci-fi-lite comedy that's very much in…

August 9: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Full disclosure: I never much cared for James Cameron's The Abyss when it premiered in theatres on this day back in 1989.  Still don't.  It could be that I thought the ending was a bit rushed (and more than a bit convoluted), though I've been told that…

August 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Kids of the 1970's rejoice!  Actor Richard Anderson (show above, right, with Lee Majors) played "Oscar Goldman."  He was the boss to Steve Austin, better known as The Six Million Dollar Man.  This was one of the high points to…

August 7: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Li'l Jake Sisko (not so li'l anymore) had a pretty sweet gig (well, until the Dominion War came along as part of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's epic storyline).  He got to grow up on a space station on the edge of the galactic frontier.  His dad was…

August 6: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The problem I have with most people who want to endlessly gripe about Fox Television constantly cancelling science fiction programs is that they typically ignore the reality of the situation: most shows that get shut down suffer that fate because they simply didn't catch fire in the here and now.  Generally,…

August 5: On This Day In Science Fiction History

All things considered, 2011's Green Lantern movie was pretty awful for a lot of small reasons, but -- as can happen -- when enough of those small things get added up it ends up creating a pretty big stink.  From what I've read, it seems like a lot of young children seemed to like…

August 4: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The late Don S. Davis had a presence that practically screamed "authority figure."  I can remember first being attuned to what he could do in a role in the much revered cult TV series, Twin Peaks, in the 90's, but perhaps Davis was best known for coming into his own with…

August 3: On This Day In Science Fiction History

It isn't that 2012's version of Total Recall -- which premiered on this day back then -- was a bad film necessarily.  It had plenty going for it.  I think the only real reason it didn't find a bigger audience is that the original really wasn't all…

Gilligan's Trek By Casey Menace

Just sit right back

And you'll hear a tale,

A tale of a fateful Trek,

The story of the Enterprise,

A star ship on a trek.

The First Officer was a Vulcan man,

The captain, a ham to go.

The Enterprise set sail that day,

For a three season show,

A three season show.

The budget started getting rough,

The trekking show was tossed.

If not for the letters of the fearless fans

The show would have been lost.

The show would have…

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!

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!

September 2: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Love him or hate him, Keanu Reeves is the face of sci-fi for a generation of movie-goers.  He was Neo in The Matrix.  He kinda/sorta took over our planet in The Day The Earth Stood Still remake (the original is still better).  And he traveled through time, all for the purposes of doing a book report, in Bill &…See More
