On the show this week it is all about the Stainless Steel Rat. The character was introduced in Harry Harrison’s short story The Misplaced Battleship, first published in 1960 in Astounding Magazine. You will hear parts one and two read by the talented Phil Chenevert. Parts three and four will play Thanksgiving day.
Last Friday we introduced the blog version of These Are Your Stories. It quickly became apparent to me that friday is not a good day to publish. Not many of you took advantage of this. Of course, the post is still there and it is titled These Are Your Stories #1.
What is this project? While it is starting as a blog for now, plans are in the works for a brand new podcast by the same name. This will be a live callin show. I am working on the logistics and will be doing some test runs which will be posted as blogs. What I am looking for right now are folks who like to be part of the testing process. If you want to be a guinea pig please let me know by heading to the main website and using the contact tab. All manner of stories are welcome, so please consider taking part. One last thing about These Are Your Stories. I like to learn from my mistakes. So, it will be moving to Tuesdays. That means there will not be a new post until November 24th.
The 2020 Halloween Contest has ended and Sylvia has picked two winners this year. Ee will announce these lucky folks in early December. Thank you to everyone that sent in a guess.
