Pretending to Look the Other Way

Pretending to Look the Other Way

ray-bradbury-love-460x723So, there’s this guy, this man, this wonderful writer that I adore above all others. His name is Ray Bradbury.

It is because of him that I write fantasy and science fiction. It is because of him that I love words and strive for lyrical, evocative, luscious, vibrant prose. It is because of him that I learned something important about science fiction and fantasy: It is not escapist fiction the…

In the Studio: Scott Snyder

Scott, Mark and Paul

Scott Snyder, Mark Osier, and Paul Kwinn—Rooster chorus

In the studio this week, we have the fabulously funny and uber-talented Scott Snyder, working on a new CD.

Title to come.

Here’s a pic of Scott hamming it up—er, I mean performing in the backup chorus for Kristoph and Margaret at Consonance 2013.

So, here’s what I’m wondering—if female backup singers are “chick” singers, are male backup…

Katy & SMac

I’m very tired but happy. Yesterday I wrapped an intensive two week recording session with Katy Dröge-Macdonald and Steve Macdonald. Katy and Steve are now performing as Twotonic. We’ve completed all their vocal and guitar parts for “Rowan and Storm”, their album of cover songs. Since they came from Germany to record, we were under a bit of time pressure to get everything done,…

The Word is Baseball

The title phrase of this post is from one of my three most favorite books, Shoeless Joe by W.P. (William Patrick) Kinsella. It is not the signature line from the book or the movie it inspired, Field of Dreams. That would be the oft-quoted “If you build …

Faith in Film: Religious Themes in SF

Book View Cafe author Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff was one of several science fiction writers interviewed by the Deseret News Online on the subject of religious themes in science fiction movies and books.

Maya writes fantasy and science fiction, including co-authoring a trio of Star Wars novels with her Jedi Master, Michael Reaves.

The Deseret News is affiliated with the Church of the Latter Day Saints, while Maya is a member of the Bahá’í Faith. 

“So, this is a sort of interfaith collaboration—about science fiction,” says Maya, “How cool is that?”
