I suspect that when the Wits radio station hosted the “Bad Neil Gaiman Challenge”, they knew the hilarity that would ensue. Hundreds of entrants wrote their best bad Neil Gaiman story. Now we can all share in that painful-but-funny goodness by watching Neil himself read the winning entries.

A Bad Lip Reading of “The Walking Dead” Season 4 (Part 2)

I feel so, so guilty for liking these videos so much. Such a simple idea that consumes so much of my time when there are so many other more important things to do.

And then this makes it seem all worthwhile: “There ain’t a man alive who doesn’t wanna get his butt washed in the Jedi fountain…”

Animated for Your Pleasure: The “Star Trek” Pie-Eating Story From “Breaking Bad”

Breaking Bad is yet another one of those shows that everyone recommends and I never have the time to watch. If I was watching it, I would have seen the bit where one of the characters is talking about his idea for a Star Trek that sounds like that pie-eating scene in Stand By Me…if it were directed by Paul Verhoeven.

Now someone has taken that audio snippet from the show and animated it. God, I loves the Internets…

An Interview With Hugo-Winning Best Fan Writer & Author Jim C. Hines

Best Fan Writer Hugo-winner Jim C. Hines nominated me to moderate the first panel I was ever on. He loves breaking in new writers. His Jig The Dragonslayer trilogy, now out in a Daw omnibus, is a humorous sword and sorcery tale about a goblin. He followed that with the four book Princess cycle which are fairy tales gone awry crossing Disney princesses with Charlie’s Angels. Published by Daw Books, his latest book Libriomancer starts a new trilogy, Magic Ex-Libris, about a librarian hunting a killer. Because he likes to stretch himself, being as he lives in Lansing, he set this series in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It’s an urban fantasy with a lot of humor, involving dryads, wizards, vampires, automatons and more. Jim’s short fiction has appeared in Realms of Fantasy, Fantasy, Andromeda Spaceways, Writers of the Future and several anthologies. He can be found online at Facebook, Twitter via his website at and his blog.

Bryan Thomas Schmidt talks to Jim C. Hines about his career and his exciting future projects.


SFFWRTCHT: Starting at the beginning, Where’d your interest in SFF come from?

Jim C. Hines: Ahem. Is this thing on? My interest in SF/F comes from the fact that swords and magic and spaceships and lightsabers are awesome.
