GEEK GAB: Featuring E.T. the Extraterrestrial and Vlad James

Sunday , 13, August 2017 Leave a comment

You can read people’s blog posts compulsively, but there are some things you just can’t pick up about them until you hear them talk. And in this latest Geek Gab episode, Castalia House Blog columnist Vlad James comes alive!

It’s a great show, though. And I have to say, I never really got why all the authority figure types in E. T. were shown on screen with their heads cropped out of the shot. What does it mean? Why does it work? Listen to the show and find out!

For the main gab topic, Vlad James, Daddy Warpig, Brian Niemeier, and John McGlynn dig into Vlad’s recent post on The Death of the Science Fiction Short Story. Why was the short fiction format a perfect fit for the genre? What were the benefits and side effects of this. And why is it never coming back again?

Okay, maybe not so much that last one. But the discussion on the others is in depth and first rate. Check it out!
