Read a script, read a script! - post author Don

Thirty! Count ’em Thirty-ish original scripts are up on the Unproduced Scripts page. Read ’em then talk about ’em.

It is no secret that a lot of folks who showcase their work on this site are great fans of the horror genre. Also, no great secret that, next to reading scripts, I like listening to podcasts of speculative fiction the likes of which are found on Escape Pod and Variant Frequencies. Well, Steve Eley and Mur Lafferty and Ben Phillips (the same fine folks that brought you Escape Pod) have banded together to bring you PseudoPod The Horror Podcast. The inaugural podcast is a work by Scott Sigler, author of the podio works Earth Core, Infection (not for the faint of heart) and Ancestor. So, horror fans out there (and there are a lot of them), check out PseudoPod. Note Scott Sigler’s work and the stories that appear on PseudoPod are not kid friendly. This is scary, gory stuff here. – Don

Skyscraper and The American Museum of Radio and Electricity - post author Don

It is no secret that I’m a big fan of Old Time Radio (OTR). My new friend Stan, who works for The American Museum of Radio and Electricity,
sent over his drama company’s rendition of Skyscraper. You can listen and read along over on the Radio Scripts page.

When you have a moment, do check out The American Museum of Radio and Electricity. Located in Bellingham, Washington, USA the museum has the definitive collection of radios, related gear and all sorts of instruments from the historic development of electrical transmission: Tesla coils, etc. As one might expect, they also run their own radio station – KMRE 102.3 FM broadcasting in Bellingham, Washington. Enjoy the best music and classic broadcasts from the Golden Age of Radio. – Don

Silent Universe Sci Fi Radio Drama - post author Don

Update on the Radio Scripts page – All three scripts to the first three episodes of Silent Universe are now available.

I grew up listening to rebroadcasts of Superman, The Shadow and Green Hornet from the Golden Age of Radio. Later, radio adaptations of Star Wars and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy came out and were much enjoyed. The folks over at Silent Universe have brought back the good old days of Radio with a modern twist.

Silent Universe follows the adventures of Emmeline Kaley, a professional mercenary who finds herself involved with a covert organization after a paying job goes horribly wrong. Teamed with a motley cast of characters including a weapons specialists, a computer hacker, an ex-mercenary and even a casino tycoon, Emmeline Kaley is forced to go to extreme lengths to prevent tragedy from striking the solar system. With a style of drama that mixes elements of 24 and the new Battlestar Galactica, each episode of the Silent Universe reveals layers of suspense and intrigue that leaves audiences guessing at what twists its plot will take next.

Fans of OTR should give Silent Universe a try. Head on over to the Radio page and take a look at the production scripts for the first three episodes of Silent Universe and give episodes one and two a listen. I’m sure you will not be dissappointed. – Don
