Thank goodness Serinda Swan loves to play dress-up! She's a talented actress -- to say the least -- and she looks great in costume. You can see her work in TRON: LEGACY, as well as her brief stint as Zatanna in the WB's SMALLVILLE. Join me in wishing her a Happy… Continue

It may seem a bit tame or even passe by today's standards, but when ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK premiered on this day in 1981 it made a believer out of many sci-fi fans. John Carpenter's somewhat disturbing look at the future of mankind -- specifically at the future of… Continue

She's not just a pretty face ... but, well, at least she is that, too! Say Happy Birthday to STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE's communications officer -- Ms. Linda Park -- as she turns another year older, wiser, and lovelier today! Park was born on this day in… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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,… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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… Continue

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.…

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!

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!
