Happy New Year/Reboot
A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to my readers. It's been many moons since my last post. 2013 was a very difficult year all-around that played havoc with my life. I don't think I got any writing done and even getting the radio show in was a struggle as evidenced by the erratic broadcast "schedule". 2014 will begin with me heavily engaged in a lengthy murder trial but I hope that some normalcy will return after that.
Either way, by hook or by crook I'm going to get some writing done and at the very least get back to at least a few posts here per month. So I'm "re-booting" Swords and Space.
The big event I'm looking forward to this year is Astronomi-con Toronto 2014. I plan on attending the two day event with my oldest son (who will be 8 by that time). I've made some progress getting my army ready for that and some pictures will follow.
I wrestled a lot with whether Swords and Space would return for a second season, and finally the solution presented itself in my father who I've brought on as co-host/producer. We had a pile of fun doing the Twilight Imperium and Blade Runner shows together, and having help to produce and host the show will really take a load off my shoulders allowing us to continue.
So, on 7 January we'll be starting the new "Wansbutter and Wansbutter" Swords and Space Radio. Aside from having two regular hosts, we'll be running a regular schedule, appearing on AMDG the first Tuesday of every month. We'll also cover a film and a novel each episode. This new format begins this week:
