Sci-Fi Buzz on YouTube

Back in the early years of the Sci Fi Channel, before the horror "Sci Fi Original Movie" was a gleam in Bonnie Hammer's eye, there was a great show called Sci Fi Buzz, hosted by Mike Jerrick. It had great reviews of science fiction movies, books, and television, great interviews with authors, and commentary by Harlan Ellison.

Well now, thanks to YouTube, you can see some of these old segments. Like this one above on the Orlando convention MegaCon.

I'm writing the introduction to a forthcoming edition of Warlord of Mars, part of the classic John Carter of Mars series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. It's being published by my friend Van Allen Plexico under his White Rocket Books imprint, and I'm honored to be doing it.

You can learn more about the John Carter books Van is publishing here.
