About WITHIN THIS MORTAL COIL: There are some things you can’t un-do. You face the result of your actions and move on, but what if you were forced relive those moments over and over? For Corey Aston, this nightmare became reality after waking up in his bathtub with his wrists slit. A mysterious stranger to say his wife left him and taken everything. Then he is being hunted by two men in ski masks. When things worsen and the sweet embrace of death takes a hold of him, he isn’t lifted up to the heavens, but dragged back down to his bathtub to repeat the events that just transpired. As reality blurs and his sanity dissipates, Corey must unravel the tangled web his life has turned into or be forced to repeat his mistakes and brew in his own personal hell. With so many knots, where does one start to untangle the mess? And, without the person you love by your side, is it even worth trying?
This episode is brought to you by Eternal Press. Originally founded in 2007, Eternal Press publishes a wide array of genre fiction, including a book previously mentioned on the show, THE LOKIANS, and other novels like THE WILD BOYS by our good friend Travis Heermann. We will be bringing you several episodes in the coming month sponsored by individual Eternal Press titles, and we’ll have a chance to meet some of the authors via a round table discussion. To learn more about this small press and the titles they offer, visit their website, research their titles on Amazon, and tell them AISFP sent you.
The boys get together for the first time in months. There is a big announcement made (see below), but first they discuss topics like:
- Brent moderating panels featuring Patrick Rothfuss;
- An exciting Patrick Rothfuss Kickstarter Campaign;
- The Themed for Your Pleasure Podcast;
- The Hide and Create Podcast;
- Tracy Hickman’s moving story at the Superstars Writing Seminar;
- Timothy C. Ward’s background;
- Star Trek: Into Darkness.
So, what’s this big announcement all about?
Shaun here. For most of you, this won’t be a big deal at all, but it is for me. After 6 1/2 years piloting Adventures in Scifi Publishing, I am stepping out of the Captain’s Chair and surrendering the helm to Timothy C. Ward. Both Moses and Brent will remain as co-hosts and interviewers, and I will make the occasional appearance in the future. But by and large, my time on the podcast has run its course.
Creating this podcast in 2006 and seeing it through over 200 episodes has been tremendously fulfilling. I have interviewed amazing writers like Ray Bradbury and Neil Gaiman. I have spent time one-on-one with some of my favorite actors, like Robert Carlyle and Michael Shanks. And I have had the unbelievable honor of meeting new authors as they are just really starting their careers. We had folks like Tobias Buckell and Greg Van Eekhout on the show when they had just one book out! Most important to me, I have made real and true friends that I love and cherish.
I look forward to being a fan of the show and contributing interviews when I can, and I know that Tim, Moses and Brent will usher forth many wonderful podcasts to come. Thank you for your support over the years. I hope I can meet all of you at a convention in some year to come, and I hope I was able to contribute something to this community, though certainly I can never come close to bestowing an equal measure of what I have received. God bless you all.
