Thrillers that are actual thrill rides are a source of enjoyment for me, and when I find one that is a rollercoaster ride moving so fast it almost takes your breath away, it feels as if I can’t read it fast enough. Two Girls Down easily falls into that category.
Science fiction author Alex R. White stops by to talk about his new space opera trilogy, The Salvagers. The first book, A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe, is a rowdy, raucous adventure with numerous twists.
I actively seek out tales from varied cultures because I want to experience stories from and about peoples and mythologies I am not familiar with. I don’t mind reading the same types of stories more than once, but I don’t want one type of story to be the only story I can access.
So when books like Empire of Sand come along, I dive in with glee.
Horror author and editor Amber Fallon talks about her latest project, the Fright into Flight anthology from Word Horde, why curating this book was so important, and what makes horror one of her favorite things.
Often with novels that lose the reader’s interest there seem to be filler chapters or sections that added way too much detail about a plot point or go through every rivet detailing a ship.

I am a sucker for a space opera, same as for a good Western. The argument can be made that those are two sides of the same coin, and I can go along with that, too. So when I find a fun space opera, be it television, film, or graphic novels, a story or group of characters that hook me, it’s easy to fall in love with them.
Fantasy and Horror author and editor Christopher Golden talks about Hark the Herald Angels Scream and the fun of curating holiday horror tales, and his early history with horror stories at Christmastime.
