The Search for New Ninjas Begins


The search for potential new Ninjas officially begins now.

Currently, the plan is to recruit a handful of people to create a pool of Ninjas, and each topic would be covered by myself and two other Ninjas. That way the burden of having to read or watch everything would be spread out amongst a few more people.

New and Improved Ninjas

So, what do you think of the new look?

It’ll take some time to add in the appropriate thumbnails for older posts and shows, but eventually we’ll get there.

More KAMN Coming

As promised last fall, my old reviews from before I joined Dragon Page will be reposted here shortly.

I couldn’t decide if it would be better to repost them with the original dates (thus dating them before KAMN existed), or just post them new, with a tagline saying when they were originally done. Brian liked the posting them new idea, so that won out.

Asimov, Foundation and more


We’ve had a lot of requests during the time we’ve been doing this to do a show on “Foundation.”

A lot of requests.

I haven’t put it on the schedule yet, simply because of how much work I’ve been doing lately, but for some reason I kept getting hints and reminders about Foundation over the past 2 months.

The Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy

“The Author’s Grimoire” contains an essay by Joe Murphy, and the book is dedicated to him. I don’t know if this is the last essay he sold or not, but it’s finally coming to print.

Back in the Saddle

As always, you can check out the list of upcoming shows, and potential upcoming show topics on our Future Topics page.

Another Ninja guest spot

Into the Dark, a podcast brought to us by H. R. Tucker and the Computer King, features Summer in the latest episode.

A discussion of Santa’s “inherent evil”, and a Computer King Arena smackdown with Summer Ninja vs The Reigning Shogun of Taiwan.

The Lensman series

Dave loves the Lensman series. He’s wanted to do that series ever since we started this show. So, should the Lensman series be read in publication order, or in the “chronological” story sequence order?

Show Discussions open

Those of you who’ve been around since we started this show know that I’d implemented a plugin that automatically closed the comments form after 4-5 weeks, basically to save me from having to clean up as much comment spam. With the newer and better comment spam filters out there, I’d been thinking about removing that […]

Ninjas in Other Podcasts


Right after Thanksgiving, I chatted with The Lipstick Aliens, Show #13. They even stumped me with some trivia questions.
