About

The Kick-Ass Mystic Ninjas were originally Summer Brooks and Joe Murphy, featured in the Farpoint Media shows Slice of SciFi, Wingin' It, and The Dragon Page Cover to Cover.

David Moldawer started out as a Dragon Page reviewer, and attained the rank of Ninja Scholar and Scrollkeeper after passing his Ninja Final Exam with flying colors in a brilliantly executed listener ambush. He also had his own show, The Morning Brew.

Joe Murphy was diagnosed with a virulent cancer in November 2006, and when he became unable to continue recording KAMN shows, Brian Brown joined as a ninjas-in-training, and soon became a new regular ninja.

Joe Murphy passed away on April 1, 2007. He will be missed.


Summer is the Ninja Trainer, as skilled in the martial arts as she is in the arcane knowledge of science fiction and fantasy in television and film, and she desires to write and produce a kick-ass TV series or miniseries that leaves a mark on people.

In addition to knowing way too much about TV, movies and books, Summer's also the producer for the ever-growing number of FarPoint Media shows, a writer with a few publishing credits to her name, a Unix systems administrator and website administrator and burgeoning WordPress guru.


David Moldawer is an editor at Portfolio, an imprint of Penguin Group, where he acquires business books. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and dog.

Dave unleashes his inner geek in varied discussions, including debating the finer points of Airwolf versus Blue Thunder on the Kick-Ass Mystic Ninjas podcast, and he graduated to full Kick-Ass Mystic Ninja status in April 2006.
