Our guest on the Star Chamber Show this coming week is Jerry Benns! An author, editor, blogger, and publisher, Jerry is an active and rising force in the indie book world! We will be talking about events, books, and his new company Charon Coin Press, among other topics! All the fun starts at 9pm EST, this coming Wednesday night!
For a little more about Jerry:
Jerry Benns started writing when he was quite young. However, he began seriously writing in 2010 by launching his blog, TripThroughMyMind.com. Since then, he has expanded the site to include interviews with authors, book reviews, and sections to encourage building the writing community. Jerry’s deep-seeded enjoyment of reading and writing now has him embarking on the exciting journey of publishing by launching Charon Coin Press.
In 2014, after becoming the editor for the State of Horror anthology series, Jerry pursued the opportunity to purchase the series, and others, in order to release them under his new publishing company, Charon Coin Press. Jerry brings his experience from his previous marketing/branding company, as well 15 years of experience as a networker and project manager to Charon Coin Press.
Jerry continues to write short stories for a collection to be released later in 2014. He is also currently working on the first novel in his speculative fiction series, The Meek Shall Inherit.
So join us this Wednesday in the Star Chamber, at 9pm EST and meet the wonderful Jerry Benns!
From an historic gold rush town in rural British Columbia to the origins of our (3 dimensional) Universe, your friends in podcasting go way back into the past and look forward into the speculative future on this week’s show.
Like television? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness discuss the ending of “Breaking Bad” and the debuts of “The Blacklist” and “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Like movies? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean and Phil discuss Jude Law’s work in Steven Soderbergh’s HitchcockianSide Effects, Ron Howard’s effort to bring Formula One to the big screen with Rush, the influence Sergio Leone is having on Phil’s own filmmaking efforts these days and what Phil has learned about the interesting journey Leone’s “Dollars” trilogy took to U.S. theatre screens. Oh, and also, Dean tears into the abysmalMan of Steel.
Like science fiction? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean and Phil discuss Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep in print, on screen and even on stage! And they effusively reminisce a great deal about Alfonso Cuaron’s Chrildren of Men (and a little bit about his Prisoner of Azkaban) in anticipation of the release this week of Gravity.
Of course, if you just like good, insightful, irreverent and inspiring conversation, then you’ll definitely enjoy this brand new episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Lo and behold, the elusive and talented author S.H. Roddey is our featured guest this Wednesday night at 9pm in the Star Chamber!
Her long-awaited feature appearance coincides with the release of a brand new eBook, Devil's Daughter, and we will be talking about all kinds of things with her, from her rumored mastery of the art of making cheesecake to her talents shapeshifting. Fans can ready themselves as we will open up for call-ins too!
If you don't know about S.H. Roddey, you need to, because this is one Rockin' Roddey! Here's a bit about this writing wonder of the Carolinas:
South Carolina native S.H. Roddey has been writing for fun since she was a child and still enjoys building worlds across the speculative fiction spectrum filled with mystery and intrigue. She brings to the literary world a unique blend of humor, emotion, and wild ideas filled with dark themes and strong characters. Having already traversed the murky waters of both the independent press and self-publishing markets for short fiction, Susan is proud to have found a home with Seventh Star Press for her Soul Collectors novel series. In her spare time, she also writes paranormal and contemporary romance as Siobhan Kinkade.
In addition to writing she is also a voracious reader, wannabe chef, and video game addict with two full-time jobs: administrative social media professional, and mom to two cats, a teenager, and a precocious toddler with an affinity for computer keyboards. She also enjoys the perks of being married to her best friend and full-time muse.
So join us in the Star Chamber this Wednesday! From sheer mayhem to world domination, S.H. Roddey cannot be contained, so you'll have to tune in to see if the show survives her appearance on it!

The new ‘Noah’ movie has raised many questions about the Flood. Some Christians say it is a good thing that Hollywood is making it into a large scale motion picture. Others say not to watch as it will not be true to the biblical narrative. If you could write a history of the time of the Flood, what would it look like? How would you portray the Earth? How would you perceive Noah? The Ark? The civilization?
