Curated Sci-fi Articles 

Somers High School Grad Self-Publishes Sci-Fi Fantasy Novel
"During the pandemic, Michael Nyikos, a Somers Senior High School graduate and current junior at Union College in Schenectady, wrote and self-published a sci-fi fantasy novel, The Colson Legend: Ice Queen. "  ~ D.W. Richards: I'm always up for putting the spotlight on other indie creators!

Let science fiction be weird again
"Once the genre where anything could happen, science fiction now tends to the high budget, high technique, and infinitesimally low risk. The result has all the defects of the genre, including flat characterization and absurd dialogue, with few of the rewards." ~ D.W. Richards: Just, yes. (Except, I write awesome dialogue. 🙃)

Goyer has said he hopes the saga can unfold over 80 episodes and several commentators have mentioned Foundation in the context of the race to find the new Game of Thrones, a similarly complicated, sprawling story that ended up running to 73 episodes. "I did pitch eight seasons to Apple," says Goyer. "I know the end point, I know what we're writing towards.  ~ D.W. Richards: It's already better than GOT because  Dunning–Kruger showrunners won't be writing the ending.
