What’s that saying? “Time flies when you’re having fun.” And it seems that August has just zipped by at a fairly decent clip. Here we are going into our last week of Book Month on Live From the Bunker, and it occurs to me that you might have missed some of our episodes. (Actually, comparing the number of people who follow us on WordPress and social media, I can safely say a lot of you miss a lot of things. But that’s a subject for another post.)
Anyhoo, to jump start your weekend, and to get us primed for the last week, I thought I’d remind you of the episodes we have in the can. So here’s who we’ve had as guests so far:
Rhonda Eudaly – contributing author on the Four Redheads of the Apocalypse series
Jeffery S. Fellin – voice actor and audiobook narrator, who also happened to be on Syfy’s Robot Combat League
John Ordover – former editor at Pocket Books, where he shepherded the Star Trek novels, including New Frontier and the Strange New Worlds series
yours truly – Mr. Harvey grilled me about my own book, The Hero at the End of His Rope
Rob Kroese – author of the popular Mercury trilogy, along with Starship Grifters; plus we talk about self-publishing vs traditional publishing
Thomas K. Carpenter – author of several steampunk and alternate history series
David Mack, Kevin Dilmore, Dayton Ward and Rob Caswell – discussing the new Star Trek: Seekers series, which developed out of Rob’s fan art
Greg Cox – Tor consulting editor and Scribe-winning author of several franchise novels, including the Khan Trilogy and novelizations of Godzilla and Man of Steel, among lots of others
Lisa Jensen – author of Alias Hook, a new take on the story of Captain James Hook and how he deals with being trapped in Neverland
Along the way, Mr. Harvey and I had a very nice discussion about the new movie adaptations of A Wrinkle in Time and The Dragonriders of Pern — plus the contest we put together — and now we find ourselves looking toward…
Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert – the authors of the Dune series join us to discuss Hellhole: Inferno, the third book in the Hellhole trilogy

Joseph Lallo – author of The Book of Deacon and Bypass Gemini, among others
Amy Pascale – MTV producer and author of Joss Whedon: The Biography
We’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to talk with so many people this month, and it’s just flown by as we near September, the Fan Cross-Over Event Month. We’re looking forward to our next (and last) week of Book Month, and we hope you’ve enjoyed the conversations, too.
This is just another step forward in our efforts to bring you top-shelf content you won’t find anywhere else. And don’t forget, every Thursday we bring you the Convention Weather Watch, wherein meteorologist Bryan Busby shares the weekend forecast for every city hosting a convention. Just check our Conventions & Events list to see if yours is included.
If you like watching your radio shows and podcasts, you can do that, too! Just head over to our Livestream channel — SciFi4Me TV — and you can see past episodes of Live From the Bunker, plus a collection of interviews we’ve done in the last few years with celebrities, authors, and other notable folks in the genre.
