Moriarty & Pity - A live reading from Balticon 50

One of the great things about Balticon is they ask me to do live readings, which, as you might imagine, since I record my voice for fun, I love doing.

This bit is the beginning of a work in progress starring Moriarty and Pity, characters my wife,J.R. Blackwell, and I created together. They are absolutely horrible people, and I think you'll like them quite a bit.

Queering the Feed - Panel Discussion at Balticon 50

I wasn’t planning on releasing this recording so soon. But in the wake of massacre in Orlando, it appears that queer people simply existing is a radical act. So, here is a panel about queer people existing. I was struck, listening to it again, by how much laughing is in it, how much joy, how much hope. There’s complaints, too, and disappointment and sorrow. But it begins with laughter and ends with an expression of solidarity, and if that’s not a radical reaction to all of this, I don’t know what is. 

I’ve made it a point to do these “queer visibility” panels for the past couple of years at Balticon, because, in the words of our forefathers, if you don’t start none, there won’t be none. A month ago, I thought it was important to stand up and be noticed. It’s more important now.

I’ll talk about Balticon properly in a few days, That episode will have a live reading I did. I’m not charging the Patreon supporters for this episode. We’ve all paid enough, already. 

In the light of the devastation, discussions like this feel so small. In the light of the devastation, discussions like this feel colossal.

Episode 17 - City of Sleep

Criterion, Michigan is a city of amnesia, where everyone looses their memories when once fall asleep. Tenebrae Candle is a detective in Criterion, and has to pull together the threads of her own missing memories before she can see the tapestry of the mystery in front of her.

A woman is trouble. A gun was fired. These are facts. But what about the missing spaces between them?

In the endless expanse of the midwest, a woman who calls herself Angel has severed her ties to the earth. Instead, she flies through the air, with the greatest of ease.

You can fly, too. All you have to do is give up everything you are.

The Impressive Cast of "Son of Planet X"

This was not an easy episode to do, and I couldn't have done it without these remarkably talented women: newcomer Sonia Williams, VFPX VIP Whitney Strix Beltrán, and Taleisha Bowen. Taleisha, in addition to being a long-time friend and a gifted improvisor, is also a therapist in real life.

Seriously, folks, the caliber of people I get to work with on this show never ceases to astound me.

Episode 15 - Son of Planet X

I don't have a recording of my son, from when he was alive. So I went to a specialist in pediatric phantasmic attachment disorder--ghost children--and a professor of alternate realities, to see if I could, just maybe, talk to him one more time.

The result was a visitation I never could have anticipated.
