"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear,
and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."
- H.P. Lovecraft, Supernatural Horror in Literature
Praise for The Not-So-Silent Planet
"It shouldn’t be a surprise to you that ultra-hip MPLS + STPL
has an open mic night dedicated to...sci-fi, fantasy, tales of the
supernatural and such. It also shouldn’t be a surprise that the
quality of the material is higher than an H.G. Wells zeppelin."
- Hitara, Secrets of the City
"...that was some delightfully trippy shit...mind-bendingly
strange and fun...they burrow into your mind and
keep you thinking about them long after they're done."
- Matthew Everett, Single White Fringe Geek
"...definitely in the grand tradition of short-story writing in the genre...if
you like story-telling events, don't miss this one. Seriously. Just...don't."
"I love audio books. I love science fiction and fantasy
stories. I love really good storytellers. I loved this show."
"...helps you to see that there are many
possibilities in this vast universe of ours."
