Do you enjoy detective tales? How about detective tales that take place on a ship with millions of people hurtling through space on a 1,000 year journey? If your answer is 'yes' then you won't want to miss this weeks episode! We welcome Scott Markley to talk about his book 'Stellar Detective Tales: The Hunt for the Living Shadow'.
In the year 2073, Earth, suffering from overcrowding, energy shortages, and planetary disaster, sent 8 million people aboard a colony ship towards Proxima Beta, the nearest habitable planet. For 100 years this ship, the NEW YORK, better known to its inhabitants as ‘The NAWK’, has traveled in relative peace. But with 900 years to go, cracks are beginning to form in the perfect society. It is into the warm pot Detective Leslie Flynt finds himself thrust into the life of Officer Samuel Teegs, becoming a member of the thin blue line in a century he’s never even imagined. Buy your copy on Amazon!
In this weeks Retro Roundtable, we share our most desired super powers, what we'd do with them if we had them, and the stipulations behind each. Come on it and see if we name your favorite super power!
