The Pyromantics - BACK AND BLOODY!
"Hey Morbid Scribblers, we'd like to let you know that we are up and about again, after a long period of writing sensible academic things, and we need fresh blood now. We've posted our first story of 2008 'The Island' by Guilty Genius so come on over, have a read, and leave some feedback. It'd be great to get some new writing up on the site to really kick 2008 off and to make up for lost time. So, please do send your stuff on over, guys. Any bloody Valentine's tales out there?
Also we were thinking of using the space where we previously had the Heart Shaped Box competition stuff, to put up images and news about new horror coming out, or sci-fi etc. If you guys have any ideas about what you'd like to see there, or you have something you yourself would like to put up, a new book you're selling, or e-zine you've started etc then let us know, we need visuals so if you have an image to go with it then that's even better!
Message us here or email firstname.lastname@example.org"
Are We Alone? - New episode "You Talkin' to Me? The science of communication"
Blah, blah, blah. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Yap, yap, yap. There's a lot of blather out there in the verbalsphere - you know what I'm saying? So you need to be crafty in order to be heard. We'll wax eloquent about those who succeed at getting their messages across... from a theory about how animals compete for bandwidth to the beautiful and sonorous language of whales. Also, how to recognize a message from E.T. And, making the case for letting that library card lapse: the extinction of the written word. Guests: |
- Bernie Krause - Bio-acoustics researcher and director of Wild Sanctuary
- William Crossman - Author of VIVO: the Coming Age of Talking Computers and the director of the CompSpeak 2050 Institute for the Study of Talking Computers and Oral Cultures
- Laurance Doyle - Astronomer at the SETI Institute
