More Deck Gibson

Deck GibsonDeck Gibson: Far Reach Commander is back on Decoder Ring Theatre. They are running the second of six new episodes, Deck Gibson and Two Days on the Tundra of Terror by Matt Wallace.

Here is the description from their site:

Responding to a faint distress call brings Deck to a frozen wasteland of a planet. With bone-chilling temperatures and blinding blizzards, surely nothing could have survived in such an environment… Or could it? Isoloated from the Far Reach One, far from help, far from hope, Deck will find the answer to this and more questions during… Two Days on the Tundra of Terror!

As always, this is another great production by our friends at Decoder Ring Theatre. The Deck Gibson stories are a great example of Matt Wallace’s diversity. They are very different from the type of work you have heard by Matt here on Variant Frequencies. The series is old style pulp science fiction tales.

Help Sigler

Order InfectedOur friends J.C. Hutchins and Seth Harwood put together this audio file specifically for the Variant Frequencies listeners. They are trying to help Scott Sigler make it onto the New York Times Best Seller List. The thought behind this push is that if we can get Scott Sigler’s Infected onto the NY Times list, then that is going to help all fiction podcasters.

Matt Wallace on Writers Talking

On Saturday, October 20th, Matt Wallace was a guest on Writers Talking. We thought you would enjoy hearing what Matt and Mark Leslie had to say about writing horror.

Two prolific independent horror authors discuss writing scary stories… how is the genre different from others? How do you frighten with the written word? Also — we’ll be giving away a prize package featuring works by the guests and host Matthew Wayne Selznick.

Podcasts We Like

This list isn’t going to be all inclusive, we just wanted to give a shout out to some of the ones we’ve listened to and liked. It’s a helluva community out there, and we’re proud to be part of it. Our encounters with other podcasters (Podders? Casties? Is there a nickname?) have been awesome. We’ve been very impressed with how much help other podcasters have been. Tim Robertson helped troubleshoot the feed. Evo Terra advised. Dave Hamilton gave us advice on getting our name out there. Our intro and promos have been played on a number of shows. DevoSpice said some nice things in his journal.

So on with the names. I found The Secrets, Michael A. Stackpole’s podcast about writing, at TSFPN, the science fiction podcast network, and tuned in. He’s got a fabulous voice, we should see if he’ll read for us! If you’re a serious writer, listen to Michael. He’s got excellent advice and seems like a genuinely nice guy.

Three of Rick’s favorites are MyMac by Tim Robertson and Chad Perry, The MacCast by Adam Christianson and The Mac Geek Gab by Dave Hamilton and John Braun. Anybody see a pattern here? All of them give reviews of the latest Mac products, so they’re a good source of information. He’s always learning something from these guys. And their presentations are entertaining.

Rick admires Escape Pod for their impressive presentations of good spec fiction, much like our own Variant Frequencies, except they have the audience we’d love to have. I’ve also listened to several of their stories and have been inspired.

Rick also listens to Dragon’s Landing Inn by Chuck Tinsley and Lonnie Ezell, Slice of SciFi by Evo Terra and Michael R. Mennenga, Manic Mondays by Tom Rockwell of Sudden Death, a comedy rap group. (He REALLY likes podcasts.) Also a couple of Firefly ‘casts, The Signal and Firefly Talk, keeping the Serenity spirit alive.

Matt likes Shadowdance: interviews, commentary and articles about fringe culture, like vampires and magic. He also listens to Velcrotroupe and Manic Mondays for their humor. He also believes that Wil Wheaton did, in fact, invent podcasting. Wheaton’s site is currently In Exile, but Matt is positive he will return.
