According to the great 20th Century philosopher Linus van Pelt
there are three things you should never discuss with people: Religion, Politics and the Great Pumpkin. On this show we break two of the three rules. In this episode we discuss an alternate future anthology of a near future America, And The Last Trump Shall Sound. Joining us are James Morrow and Cat Rambo ,both of whom under other circumstances would have been more than enough for one episode but to have them both here to talk about their contributions to this anthology was more than amazing on a multitude of levels
Three sequential stories of how things might be “in the not too distant future” resonates as few books have recently, in part due to the superb craftsmanship of the writing of all three scribes as well as their unique understanding of past and present socioeconomic events and the impact on our shared future as a country and as people.
As much fun as they were to talk with, and let’s make no mistake about it, they were, this is also a wonderful read with some very “interesting conclusions about politics, economics, mass media and the future.
In the book, like now, no one really lives happy ever after, but in no way does that mean this is not worth reading. In point of fact, quite the opposite, regardless of your persuasion or belief, this is an eye opening anthology. I can truly say, enjoy the chaos.http://www.scifisaturdaynight.com/podcast/talkcast453.mp3
