Welcome to the greatest show in the multiverse! Fasten your seat belts for a rocketship ride to Altair City Spaceport's Rusty Rocket Tavern, where I discuss science fiction, fantasy, and horror; books, comics, movies, TV, games, toys, and classic Doctor Who. Powered by alien technology, eldritch powers, and caffeinated beverages, since a summer night in 2012 fuelled by two double gin and tonics. Shownotes, blog, contact, support, etc.: Audio:

RRR 196 The Time of the Geek
The geek life of the bloody cold, the rusting, grinding, but still great (while it lasts) cogs of the UK's National Health Service, the effect of Dungeons and Dragons on the wizard's aris, the frustrating music of Blade Runner: 2049, The Survivalist, Doctor Who: Time Trips (again), The Walking Dead (spoilers), Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Finale (spoilers), and the continuing hell of buying rubbish things online.
Nov 16, 2017
RRR 195 The Geek Life Fantastique
The geek life fantastique of offline flirting using celebrity selfie props, and also the geek life of a busted Millennium Falcon, a big needle, a bad Valerian, a funny Thor, crooked spies, a return to reading actual physical books, buying something from Amazon, and praying that you actually get it, and that when you get it, it isn't the wrong thing or broken (these people are building a rocket), and the final, final, final draft of the book you just re-edited.

RRR 194 Halloween Unedited
Happy Halloween! If you, like me, have no parties to go to, and nothing better to do other than sulk over your lack of success with those useless dating apps, join me as I avoid getting blotto and instead nibble some sweets and chat a little about Happy Death Day and geek life in general.

RRR 193 Stranger Things
We, or rather I, just think of it as the royal "we", because I'm still doing this whole damn dog and pony show on me tod, not that I'm grumpy about it or anything you understand, talk about season 2 of Stranger Things and its microcosm of 80s goodness. Goodness? Please! I was an 80s teen and, granted some of the movies and video games were great, but everything else was crap. Yuppies, greed, Thatcher, Loadsa, the Falklands, and we didn't even have the sodding internet.

RRR 84 Chat with UK Author Christopher Fowler (Roofworld, Psychoville, Bryant and May Series, Etc.)
This week I chat with prolific UK author Christopher Fowler, creator of the Bryant and May mystery series, as well as many other works of genre fiction, see He also expounds some useful writing advice and, oddly, appears to share my difficulty in finding the new entrance of Foyles (about 10ft left of the old entrance - there's a big sign!) Despite his previous work in the film industry, deep connections with Hollywood, and the Bond films' cast and crew, he still can't help me get a date with Berenice Marlohe. Damnit. I also update you about my own writing and let you know what to expect from the show in the next few weeks.
