I arrived upon Greggs readings last year and was saddened to see he had passed away in 2012 as I enjoy his style and enthusiasm for each piece he did. I had never come across "Beyond lies the wub" before and boy what a brilliant way to find out about it! Thank you Gregg for your work.

Comment on The SFFaudio Podcast #455 – READALONG: The Moon Moth by Jack Vance by Mike G. from Yonkers

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 11:06:52 +0000

'The Moon Moth' might be my favorite Jack Vance story (it's neck and neck with 'The Miracle Workers'). "If the Home Planets want their representative to wear a Sea-Dragon Conqueror mask, they'd better send out a Sea-Dragon Conqueror type of man."

BBC Radio did an excellent 2 part audio drama of this Matheson masterpiece in 2006. I enjoyed it more than the movie, which I enjoyed very much!

Comment on The SFFaudio Podcast #442 – READALONG: The Ax by Donald E. Westlake by Mike G. from Yonkers

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 22:54:41 +0000

Great podcast. I cracked up with laughter when the topic of 'Scooby Doo' was brought up- I work in Sleepy Hollow and I have long maintained that the story was the original Scooby Doo episode. There is a really great page on the local website detailing the route of the legend. The millpond is on the site of Philipsburg Manor Upper Mills, a living history museum run by Historic Hudson Valley, so you can emulate Ichabod Crane by bringing your date to the millpond. Also, Colonel Ichabod Crane was in charge of NYC's harbor defense at Governor's Island. He never forgave Irving for using his name for his comic schoolmaster. Thanks for the post, it was most enjoyable.

Easy to lose sight of Bush I. Big shadow between personality constructs / cults like Reagan and Clinton. Wonder if Bush I, too zen / Popeye ‘i am what I am and that’s all that I am …’ making poor fodder for ideological / profit agenda reinventions.

As pointed out by Terence Blake, you need to look for the French original in the Figaro's Supplément Littéraire of September 1st, 1888, not the regular issue.

Thanks a lot! So "her" mean just only "her".

Why is italicized the word "her" in the second paragraph? "Incredible," said Dorothy Lawrence, who had finished [i]her[/i] drink Is there a hidden implication?

It is interesting in what edition the dating changed. In the November 1966 issue of Fantastic is still 1958.



Comment on The SFFaudio Podcast #439 – READALONG: The Fifth Head Of Cerberus by Gene Wolfe by James

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 02:59:51 +0000

After reading The Book of the Long Sun, I told the guy who recommended it to me, "Wolfe is a so-so writer, but an amazing creator of worlds." Then when I read Fifth Head, I suddenly "got" The Book of the New Sun and began telling people Wolfe is the best SF writer period. With apologies to Gaiman, I've come to believe that not all the answers are in the text. He's deliberately excluded information so that many answers can only be reached by a cognitive leap. Here are some notes as I listened. Accept them or not. Why are there 5 heads? “That number is either too high or far too low. Maybe he’s counting the simulation.” The five heads are: The Original The Simulation The 1st Clone (whom Maitre murdered) Maitre Number 5 What is Maitre doing? He’s trying to find out why he’s not progressing in mastery and power by constantly repeating his mistakes and examining them. (See the dream on the boat.) When reading Wolfe, there's a way that "expert" give information that is inevitably incorrect (as with #5's theory about the heads) and there is a way information is given that is usually more trustworthy (like the monkey or the dream). The "experts" - as a rule - give a plausible but incorrect explanation. Who is David? He’s the “control” in the experiment. Number 5 is the subject. “Aunt Jeannine” was a control for Maitre. (Her name is another clue that the clone’s names are “Gene” (also the double helix staircase on thei way to the father’s books). Why is the address 666 Saltimbanque? A saltimbanque is a "showman", an entertainer, a circus person. I presume this refers to the street's designation as a Times Square type area during the French colonial period of the planet. ("Assimulation" is a theme of these stories.) I'm inclined to think it must be an Anti-Christ reference somehow given the street number (666) and that they are located on a hand-shaped peninsula (number of the beast) but I can't precisely demonstrate that. There are other references to Revelation. Note: In the story, we learn that abo twins share dreams. In "A Story", the writer (who is probably false Dr Marsch) describes a dream that mirrors Number 5's dream. My own theories: 1) The original form of the Abos on Green were the luminous white worms that Marsch encounters in the 3rd story. 2) The Simulation is the one conducting the experiment. In the dream, he's the pilot of the ship. The reason Aunt Jeannine died shortly after Number 5 went to prison is that she was tearing up the house looking for hidden money. And there probably is no money as Number 5 postulates. What does a robot need with stashes of money? Veil's Theory: Aunt J's explanation for why the theory is incorrect is the reason why the clones cannot progress. They are locked down from progressing and they can't stop locking it down. It is also the reason why abo-Marsch in the 3rd story cannot escape prison even though he physically has that ability. Marsch couldn't do it so neither can he.

What's the matter? In the July 1954 issue of Amazing Stories: "North America was attacked two years ago," Douglas said. "In 1958." Tim sagged. "1958. Then this is 1960." Later: "North America was attacked two years ago," Douglas said. "In 1978." Tim sagged. "1978. Then this is 1980."



Comment on Reading, Short And Deep #084 – The Thing In The Forest by Bernard Capes by Pal Benko

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 11:46:49 +0000

Being a Hungarian, I think, I have to add a little correction to the discussion. The story is written and happens in the 1800s, or in the first years of the 1900s but before 1919. You should have taken a look at a map of the 1800s. Upper-Hungary of the 1800s is the current Slovakia. It is a bit less close to Transylvania. Also, the name Elspet is more like the Slavic version of Elisabeth than the Hungarian.

And let's not forget John Maddox Roberts' "Conan the Rogue", one of his pastiches, in which Conan hunts something like the Maltese Falcon in an Red Harvest Environment. Sort of...Great fun, and maybe the best of all the Non-Howard-Conans (and better than some of these, also).

I tried I AM PROVIDENCE by Nick Mamatas - horrible stuff. Only got a few minutes into it. Marissa is reading The Ballad Of Black Tom, waiting to hear her report on that - and I still need to read Lovecraft's own NIGHT OCEAN - but LeFarge's is on my radar :)
