Greetings and salutations fellow specfic lovers. I’m your host and editor Nuke, and this is the AntiSF Radio Show Fornax Dwarf. Of all the dwarfs hanging around the Milky Way it is intrinsically one of the brightest, but it’s so far away that the light we see now left the galaxy back in the Ordovician era, when Nautiloids ruled the seas and a mass extinction event was about to turn life on earth in a different direction. So it’s not so bright.

Not sure that’s really where I wanted to go with this spiel, but let’s stick with it, anyway. Not so bright. Well, that’s almost the opposite of what I want to say when it comes to the contributors to AntipodeanSF. Always bright, they are, although I must admit that sometimes the underlying message of their words may be hidden in darknesses.

Anyway, now that we’ve seen the darkness, as opposed to the light, why not stick with me now for the next half an hour or so for two stories from the pages of AntipodeanSF online, one that questions our questions, and another to question the motives of us and the other. We’ll also hear a segment from a panel at the recent Aussie National SF Convention “Contact” in Brisbane about crime in speculative fiction.

On with those stories though, and we hope we’re not 460 million years too late.
