Acrux

G'day and welcome to an interlude edition of the AntipodeanSF Radio Show for a month with five weeks. This one's Acrux, which is a name with some special significance here at AntiSF. It's the brightest star in the Southern Cross, and I see and admire it almost every night. Listen in for more...

And as for the fairy floss, that's the bucket Kathryn gave me at the Macksville Show recently. It's huge. Thanks Kathryn. That'll keep me podcasting!

The AntipodeanSF Radio Show "Achernar"

Who's the hottest star amongst the ten brightest in the firmament? Hi, I'm Nuke, host and editor, and you're listening with me to the AntipodeanSF Radio Show "Achernar" which also answers that opening question. Hottest and bluest of them all is that most oblate of stars in Eridanus, meandering constellation, which is perhaps something I could be accused of in this show. Oblateness and meandering-ness.

Reeling it in with fictional bait, let me hook you. In "Achernar" you'll hear as a feature part one of a rather longer than normal for AntipodeanSF time-travel story. This is a change for us here at AntiSF, but it will continue. I'm encouraging any author with previous publication credit at AntiSF to contribute longer stories for the site, now a more viable thing to do online with the technological advances in displays, and the popularity of e-book readers.

Didn't you know that AntiSF is available in e-book format? Well, it is, and I must thank the ever vigilant and helpful Mark Webb for his work in creating those issues for us, which are now available in both epub and mobi formats. And while I'm meandering yet again, you should also think about downloading Dimension 6, a new and free e-magazine edited by Keith Stevenson of Coeur De Lion Publishing. I really enjoyed the first issue, which included stories by Richard Harland, Charlotte Nash, and Jason Nahrung. I particularly liked Jason's story "The Preservation Society". This is a vampire story that has a beautiful bite to it. Dimension 6 can be downloaded from the AntipodeanSF website, antisf.com.au, by choosing the "E-Reader - Downloads" link in the main menu.

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to interview Jason at the Aurealis Awards, but I did catch up with many others, and the remainder of the audio from that event is coming to the AntipodeanSF Radio show in the near future. As for Jason, perhaps I'll interview him soon, since I do have permission from him and many other AntiSF authors to "Flashback" to their stories from earlier issues of this very magazine.

Ah, digression. It's a way of life. Enough. Also in this show you'll, if you're lucky, you'll get away with a single nightmare. And now...

The AntipodeanSF Radio Show "Hadar"

Open the podbay doors and let the speculative fiction in, it's the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Hadar, featuring the strange and wonderful, including grass and opal, the lack of a single word, reboot after reboot, Fildenstar reprise, and double Aurealis Award winner Allyse Near in conversation — again.

I'm Nuke, your host and editor, and it is time for the show.

The AntipodeanSF Radio Show "Altair"

Altair the eagle carried Zues's — or was it Jupiter's? — thunderbolts. This, however, is the AntipodeanSF Radio show of that same name, including story thunderbolts. Written to shock, brief, dangerous and flighty.

I'm Nuke, your host and editor, greetings and thanks for listening in with me. Grab a spot on the grass for the next half an hour or so to lament the dangers of deliberate memory loss, to go one better than a hand-drawn Monday Map, and for an interview with the winner of two — count them — two Aurealis Awards, the young and well-balanced Allyse Near.

The AntipodeanSF Radio Show "Betelgeuse"

Greetings and welcome. Thanks for joining me for another AntipodeanSF Radio show. This is Betelgeuse, red giant star of the firmament. Orion's patch, of course. I'm Nuke, your host and editor, and I urge you to lay back and receive the wisdom of natural thermonuclear reactors. In this show you'll meet the true geeks, be amazed at where the real lycanthropic monster lives, get handed in marriage, and listen to an interview with Kate Rowe from the SF music outfit Fildenstar. I'll feature their music too, as heard at the recent Aurealis Awards ceremony in Canberra.

No more ceremony, though. It's time for you to imagine that you're around the campfire...
