The AntiSF Radio Show Markeb

G’day and welcome speculative flash fiction lovers, and welcome to the AntiSF Radio Show Markeb. I’m Nuke, your host and editor, and I’m here to intro the stories, throw in a little music, and be your guide for a half an hour or so of storytime.

In this humble show you’ll be amazed at the profundity of the web, perhaps be scarred by the Square Kilometre Array, and take the first step on a planned addiction.

The AntiSF Radio Show Alderamin

G’day. Greetings earthlings. Do you know how to find Alderamin?. Looking at the constellation Cepheus helps. Therein lives a star that’s also designated Alpha Cephei. The star is relatively close to our solar system at only 49 light years. Ah relatively, is the key. Do you really know now far 49 light years is? Do you really know how far one light year is. The distances in this universe are almost beyond imagination. But back to the star. It has the traditional name Alderamin, an Arabic name meaning "the right arm".

And here we are, rain pattering on the roof, Alderamin in action but hidden, glowing somewhere that I cannot see it because it’s behind the curvature of the planet on which we live.

And as for on this side of that planet, It’s no longer winter, warmth is coming, but there is still time for a winter’s tale — and for us to get down on the pharmaceuticals. Story time by the way. And I’m Nuke, your host and editor. Two tales, and some down-under music about to assault your ears.

The AntiSF Radio Show Phecda

Welcome, welcome. Step right up and take a peek at this wonderful ball of hydrogen. Phecda be thy name. Phecda be thy nature. It’s familiar to most observers in the northern hemisphere as the lower-left star forming the bowl of the Big Dipper, together with Dubhe (upper-right), Merak (lower-right) and Megrez (upper-left). It is a main sequence star not unlike Sol, although somewhat hotter, brighter and larger.

Phecda, by the way, is also this show. Hi, I’m Nuke, your host and editor, and today we’re going to hear two stories from the pages of AntipodeanSF, a magazine that has its roots in the stars of the southern cross, or is perhaps under magellanic clouds.

What is it that gives us that elan vital, and if you had only limited words to tell the history of time, how would you go about it? Nick Clark and Harris Tobias try to answer those questions.

The AntiSF Radio Show Scheat

Dare I say it’s a pile of Scheat? I do so dare, and I dare also say welcome to the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Scheat, podcast 125 if I’m counting, which I’m often not. Thanks for joining me. As Marie says at the beginning of each show, I’m Nuke, your editor and host on this here radio show.

Stick around for the next twenty five minutes or so for a fictional feast. I guarantee that you’ll go leaping for carbon, dioxide perhaps, find out who really needs equine animals, and identify the weird in a single gene by author name at least.

As for Scheat, it’s one of the four main stars in the great square of the constellation Pegasus, currently visible in the evening skies here in the Antipodes. We’ve had Alpheratz, this is Scheat, and four shows inot the future is Markeb. Which leaves Algenib to come As for Pegasus, the legend goes like this: Pegasus was born from the blood of Medusa after Perseus had cut off her head, and was afterwards tamed and ridden by Bellerophon. Being weary of earthly affairs Bellerophon attempted to fly to heaven but fell off, and Pegasus continued his course, entered heaven and took his place among the stars.

And isn’t that where we’d all like to be?
