For the fifth episode of season two we have something really special! The founder of Vintage SciFi Month joins for a conversation on one of the greatest months of reading ever! The end is a bit abrupt as my headset died on me so apologies for that, but this episode was so much fun to produce so we want to give it to you in its entirety! Also here are several resources for finding material to read for Vintage SciFi Month (which takes place every January). Here are the links to the resources talked about in the podcast: Project Gutenberg http://gutenberg.org/ Luminist Archives (everything) http://www.luminist.org/archives/periodicals_index.htm Luminist archives SF Magazines http://www.luminist.org/archives/SF/ Librivox Audiobooks - free public domain https://librivox.org/ Ann and Jeff Vandermeer "big books", these are avail in print and e-book.

Y’all, my platform might not be large, but it will be used to speak out against oppression and to speak up for the oppressed. We live in a time when we need to no longer be silent and need to speak up. This episode is me starting to speak out. Please listen with an open mind. Please realize I won’t always get everything right, but I will strive to be teachable and to listen. Let me say this clearly: Black Lives Matter.
A nostalgic and rambling dive into one of my comic book boxes! I grabbed the one that is filled with random comic books that I’ve not seen in ages and emptied it out while discussing aspects of 90’s comic books and the industry.

For some reason when I published episode sixteen it published complete on Anchor but incomplete on Apple Podcasts and Spotify! To correct this I’ve added the missing (almost) ten minutes here to episode 16&1/2 so that you can hopefully continue to enjoy this fun walk through my shelves!
Join me as I get a little silly and travel through my shelves reading book descriptions in a very serious and cheesy voice! This one was fun to make, hope you enjoy it!
