Kathy Porter grew up in Endicott, New York, the birthplace of IBM and only a short distance from where one of her favorite TV series creators, Rod Serling, was raised. Kathy's lifelong interest in science fiction ignited when her father, a science teacher, showed her craters on the moon and taught her about the constellations. She grew up watching science fiction movies and TV shows. Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles was her first delve into a science fiction novel, and she has been hooked ever since.
"I think I was born telling stories," Kathy explained during a recent interview. "As second to the oldest of seven children, the girls all slept in one bedroom. I loved making up bedtime stories with an eerie edge to frighten my sisters: tales about fairies, leprechauns, and aliens."

Author Pablo Solares Acebal joins me this week from his home in Spain to talk about his books, including critically acclaimed The 6th of November and the upcoming The House of Good Intentions.
Spain, 1935. In "The 6th of November", Pablo weaves a complex but fluid narrative that combines fragments of history with the intricacies of love, family, and politics. The reader is thrown into a world that is both exciting yet frightening, with characters that, at every turn, are as visible as the story itself. Pablo’s narrative, to a large extent, defies every traditional definition of technique and style, as he lavishly combines and floats from realism to magic realism, masterly using both to tell this intricate story. "The 6th of November" is not for those who enjoy bland and conventional narratives; it is one of those little volumes that will stay around for a long time.
Tune in Friday at11AM EST or listen to the archive.

"I believe there’s something inherently dangerous when something real becomes mythic. Because when faced with a myth we can’t win. So the mythic must be exposed for what it is. So we can believe in ourselves. Because it’s only what’s in us…the drive to be mythic…that matters." -Lex Luthor
21st Century Lebensborn: Children Screaming to Be Heard :
The book Children Screaming To Be Heard examines the plight of children in the care system in the United Kingdom in the 21st Century and compares it with the Lebensborn Program run by the Nazis in World War Two. The book also explores evidence of child sex crimes in the UK and internationally, involving the luring and exploitation of children. It also examines allegations of satanic ritual abuse by the global elite internationally, who appear to be participants in a global satanic cult. Jesus said, "Ye shall no the truth and the truth shall set you free." That moment of freedom is upon us if we unite, stand up for justice and take action to stop these crimes against children.
Albina Koumirova is a fine artist whose work is well known in Europe, particularly in the UK. She will be showcasing her work in London July of 2014 at a conference for a charity called Children Screaming To Be Heard. Her exhibition focuses on the plight of children and the need for all of us to do more to protect the rights of children worldwide.

THE CHARLATAN'S CROWN:
“Amy Lignor’s Tallent & Lowery team is RIVETING!”
—International Bestseller, M.J. Rose
From defeating the worst of mankind to solving puzzles that have eluded others for centuries, Leah Tallent and Gareth Lowery must now follow a new trail in order to stop a madman from resurrecting a mighty Reich.
In “13,” the duo walked into the self-appointed Devil’s home on the shores of Loch Ness. There, they met up with a hideous quartet waiting for the moment they could unleash their vengeance and take back what was rightfully theirs.
Although dead men supposedly tell no tales, Leah and Gareth continue to follow the clues left behind by these powerbrokers from Hell, and now they will enter an infamous castle to meet the ancestors of a beast who thrived on a reign of hate and terror.
Emotions run high as the brave couple head to a place known for producing pain and agony since time began, and explore a location that has once again fallen into the hands of the most hated men on earth.
Fighting for their lives from deep inside a labyrinth, they’ll stand atop a stage where an angel of death spoke to the masses, and climb to an ‘Eagle’s Nest’ to come face-to-face with a new enigma; a master puppeteer who’s pulling the strings on a monumental scheme they never saw coming.
As their own inevitable ending draws near, Leah and Gareth will fight for an unknown crown, battling a charlatan with the weapons only a hero’s companion could own . . . while dealing with the ultimate shock that loved ones can rise from the grave.
Discussing anything and everything related to comic books, movies, sci-fi, pop culture, etc.
This week we discuss converting people to Whovians, the latest Doctor episode and what Doctors are the most beloved.
We'll discuss the upcoming Walking Dead season, the newly released female THOR comic, whether or not Agent Ward should be shot and forgot and other issues of the Agents of Shield. This and more. Get your Nerd-on!!
