Spam. Why we hate it.

Because our site is constantly bombarded with spam–nearly 35,000 messages at last count–we periodically have to go through and clean out the filter, which blessedly does a great job at keeping the comments from showing up on our site.  But Greg fouled up the process this past time, which caused all comments from Episodes 60 and 61 to vanish into the ether.  If you were one of the people whose comments disappeared, we apologize profusely, and ask that you direct your justifiable annoyance at the spam purveyors, for whom we hope there is a special place reserved in the land downstairs, if you get our drift.  :)  Also, we’ll have Episode 62 up shortly.

Sorry, all!

Episode 61 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with a special show beyond your imagination–at least if you like sci-fi and fantasy even a little bit–in Episode 61 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we’re honored to feature special guest star James Patrick Kelly, Hugo and Nebula award-winning science fiction author, and during the show we follow Mr. Kelly’s able lead as we discuss podcasting, the state of science fiction and fantasy, and his latest book The Wreck of the Godspeed (officially published the day before the posting of this show).  You all know how we feel about opinions, but here we’re more than happy to defer to Jim–and we think you’ll be as interested as we are in what he has to say.  As always, we appreciate your continued support, and as always, we ask that you continue to spread the word about the show!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)
