Alan Black has been writing novels since 1997 when he started Eye on The Prize. It took him two years to complete the novel although it wouldn’t be edited and published until 2001. He has gotten faster since then completing a recent manuscript in three weeks.
Alan was born in central Kansas and grew up in Gladstone, Missouri. He graduating from Oak Park Senior High School and eventually earning a liberal arts degree from Longview Community College. He spent most of his adult life in the Kansas City area. The exception came at the orders from the U.S. Air Force when he was stationed in Texas, California, Maryland, and Japan. He and his wife were married in the late 70s and moved back to Independence, Missouri, but now live in Arizona.
Alan Black is a #1 bestselling author on Amazon and Kindle for Metal Boxes, a young adult, science fiction, military, action adventure. He has published nine novels as a self-published multi-genre writer. One writer friend called him 'timeless' because he has written historical books, contemporary modern novels, and tales of the future. His main goal is to write story driven novels, scifi books that are more character and action driven than focused on science, story driven historical books that are not history lessons and entertainment based literary fiction tales.
Alan Black's vision statement: "I want my readers amazed they missed sleep because they could not put down one of my books. I want my readers amazed I made them laugh on one page and cry on the next. I want to give my readers a pleasurable respite from the cares of the world for a few hours.
I want to offer stories I would want to read."
This show will be dedicated to stating things how they really are, and bringing out there my own start in horror, experiences in it, and truly just laying it all down, and stating how it really is.
Everything will generally be dug into so, here it is.
I am also officially parting ways with horror/sci-fi generally speaking, and trying to focus on more out there, because life is short and I really don't want to decidate the rest of my life to only 'horror.'
in Pop Culture
Sci fi fans and lovers listen to this and see how a real sci fi lover does a podcast. But here is Viki herself to tell you about her episode!
Science fiction storytelling in film is nearly as old as cinema itself. Yet it is the most misunderstood genre of all. We will be discussing seminal films of the genre that tie us to the human condition rather than alienate with over use of spaceships and laser weapons. So tune in and listen!
On tonight's brand new episode of Slasher Studios Horror Podcast, our hosts Kevin Sommerfield and Andrew Beirl will be sharing some of their recommendations for their favorite sci-fi horror films. The fun begins tonight at 10PM central so make sure to tune in and call in with some of your favorites.

Author Scott Pinsker joins me this week to talk about his book, The Second Coming: A Love Story
Two men claim to be the Second Coming of Christ. Each claims the other is Satan in disguise. But only one is telling the truth. In "The Second Coming: A Love Story," the devilish new novel by Scott Pinsker, the culture war between Red America and Blue America turns shockingly real when two self-declared saviors appear on earth. The first “messiah” attracts legions of liberal and secular-progressive followers with his message of New Age brotherhood, quickly becoming the darling of the left. The second “messiah” preaches fire-and-brimstone traditional Christianity, gaining a grassroots army of conservative worshipers ready to battle to the death. It’s finally happened: Red America and Blue America are headed for Armageddon! Novelist Scott Pinsker is a Tampa Bay-based celebrity publicist who has also written for FOXNews.com as a marketing expert. As Pinsker tells it: “Late one night I had an unsettling thought: If the Devil truly wanted to con mankind, he wouldn’t have a pitchfork and horns. All those horror movies have it wrong; a pitchfork and horns are bad marketing. Instead, his smartest strategy for activating new followers would be to appear as a holy man – and claim the faith of his target audience. Because if I were Satan’s publicist, that’s what I’d recommend.”

Author Martin Roy Hill joins me this week to talk about his books, including: Eden, Empty Places, The Killing Depths & Duty.
From his most recent release - Eden: A Sci-Fi Novella
"If this is Paradise, how bad could Hell be?" A sandstorm uncovers a long buried secret in the Iraqi desert, an ancient Sumerian temple dating back at least 6,000 years to the beginning of civilization. An American army patrol sent to investigate the ruins is trapped inside the temple’s eroded walls, first by an insurgent ambush then by another, even more powerful sandstorm. When an enemy mortar shell blasts an opening into a hidden burial chamber, Captain Adam Cadman and his soldiers take refuge deep in the ruins. What they find hidden inside threatens to destroy every belief about the beginnings of mankind—as well as modern society as we know it.

TIM CONNOR HITS TROUBLE~
Tim Connor Hits Trouble defies conventional genres. It is funny, occasionally violent, intelligent, controversial and full of sexual twists and turns. We meet Tim Connor just as his marriage hits the rocks and as he is about to 'escape' to a new job in the Social Science Department at Wash University. Far from finding tranquillity, Tim 'hits trouble' in Wash both personally and at work. Now 'on the loose' he has several interesting and 'unusual' encounters with women. At work, Tim finds himself drawn into a conflict between an old rebel academic, Henry Jones, and the ambitious Head of Faculty, Howard Swankie that culminates in a tense and dramatic climax. Within the novel's lively narrative, characters argue, sometimes angrily, over the direction of contemporary higher education - making this a relevant as well as a gripping and highly enjoyable novel.
'RotobuzzGuy' Howard Bender is joined by Fantasy Alarm staff writers Jon Impemba and Colby Conway as the positional previews for the 2015 fantasy baseball season continue. The infield gets finished off here as the catcher position gets analyzed by the crew.
