Mark Van Name, the 2008 Compton-Crook award winner, reads from his 2012 novel, “No Going Back”. One of my favorite parts of a reading can be the audience interaction and the side stories and comments by the author. This session has both. I have not followed the Jon and Lobo series but again, it has been added to my Goodreads list. Not surprisingly, the web site, http://www.markvanname.com/ , provides key author information.
James Knapp won the Compton-Crook award in 2011 and is back to offer a reading of his first novel, STATE OF DECAY. After hearing Mr. Knapp’s reading during editing, I’ve added his “revivor“ series to my Goodreads list. I hope you enjoy it also. You can find James Knapp on the web at http://www.james-knapp.com/. Please leave us feedback at the Balticon Podcast website and you can reach me at brucelerner.com.
The Drunken Comic Book Monkeys’ authors, Brian and Chris, are a unique pair of friends who somehow decided that capturing their snarky banter disguised as fiction would be a satisfying and entertaining endeavor. I believe that you will find they were correct. When Jeff, their editor and Christine collaborate on the reading they are quite the merry band. Additional information can be found at: http://www.fortresspublishinginc.com/. The reading may be a bit bawdy. They do call themselves the Drunken Comic Book Monkeys. Enjoy.
A mega huge thank you to Bruce Lerner for doing all the heavy lifting on this episode.

Sorry folks. Holiday pressures and Balticon 46 planning are too much. I need to step back and put the show on hiatus until mid to late January 2012. See you all back here then.

I’m scurrying to get an episode out, but we’ve had community wide car trouble and the Balticon national holiday of Halloween to attend to. I hope to have the episode uploaded for you tonight. It will be part 2 of the Andrew Love panel on teaching science with Larry Niven stories.
