Show #39: Pre-show Discussion


Show #39 will cover RoboCop.

This 1987 feature film starred Peter Weller, Ronny Cox, Nancy Allen, Kurtwood Smith and Miguel Ferrer.

Review: Robin of Sherwood


Even after 20 years, this series still holds a special place in the hearts of many, including mine. Seeing these episodes in clearly remastered digital glory rekindled the magic, even though it’s been nearly 15 years since I’d seen them last, on worn and barely viewable VHS tapes made from the series’ brief run on Showtime from 1984-86.

Show #38: Pre-show Discussion


Show #38 will cover “The Forever War” by Joe Haldeman.

Originally serialized in Analog magazine in 1972, it was first published in novel form in 1974, and it won the Nebula Award in 1975 and the Hugo Award in 1976.

Show #37: Pre-show Discussion

Show #37 will cover Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Discussion will include both the 1956 version and the 1978 version, so make sure you study up!

Review: Sapphire and Steel


“Sapphire and Steel have been assigned.”

The blurb on the back of the case reads: “The spiritual precursor to The X-Files, SAPPHIRE AND STEEL is one of the most atmospheric, mysterious, and compelling television programs ever made. Joanna Lumley and David McCallum star as alien investigators sent to Earth to monitor and police ruptures in time.”

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.

Great Things Come to Those Who Wait


2008 is an auspicious year.

It’s the year that Matt Stover’s epic Heroes Die becomes eligible for KAMN discussion.

This is the book that rekindled my interest in fantasy by showing me that fantasy could be so much more, and yes, validating the feeling that I hadn’t been getting enough story in my stories.

Show #36: Pre-show Discussion

Show #36 will cover Fred Saberhagen’s The Broken Lands, Book 1 of the Empire of the East trilogy.

Published initially as separate volumes, it was consolidated into the omnibus edition sometime around 1978-79 for reprinting, and has been that way ever since.

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.

Show #35: Pre-show Discussion

Show #35 will be discussion about Near Dark, a 1987 cult classic, starring Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, and Jenette Goldstein.

Vampires, cowboys, and romance, with a Tangerine Dream soundtrack. What’s not to like?
